Later he decided to resume his musical career, and he founded a studio at home. But signing a contract with any record company was not easy. With the assistance of Bogdan Titomir, Basta began to cooperate with the association "Gas Holder". The first album in the biography of Nagano was released in 2006 - "Basta 1". And as early as next year, the second album was released - "Basta 2". Then the project "Nagano" ("Noggano") was created, which gained popularity thanks to such songs as "Insure your brother," "Zhora," and others.

Basta later began to collaborate with Gulf (there was a cover song "My game").

Also, in his biography, the rapper Nagano managed to test himself as a presenter on the radio (project "Hip-hop TV"), voiced the cartoon "The Boondocks." In 2008, he received the MTV Russia Music Awards in the Network category.
