Afasi & Filthy was a Swedish hip hop duo from Uppsala, Sweden composed of rapper Herbert Munkhammar (known as Afasi) and producer Magnus Lidehäll (known as Filthy).

When they met in elementary school, and became class mates in sixth grade the two shared the same taste for music, and soon become best friends. And also started making their own music. This started in ninth grade, and in the fall of 2001 Filthy released his first mixtape, and a year after this the first cassette came, "Snus, Porr & Brännvin" (Snuff, Porn & Snaps) with rapper Spakur. Mixtape caught the attention of indie label/website Streetzone where they released the EP 1990 Nånting. The title track, that included a collaboration from Snook was released on radio in Spring/Summer 2003 charted in Sweden.

Based on this radio success, the duo signed contract with BMG, releasing the single "Bomfalleralla". But after disagreements, they broke the contract with BMG in Spring 2005 preferring to work independently. Their first single on their own label was "Le Parkour" followed by EP Jag kunde inte bry mig mindre. Albums Skruvat & choppat av Afasi in 2006 and Hotell Stress were released, the latter in 2 separate volumes in 2006 and 2007. Flacken is the band's critically acclaimed final album under the duo name.

But, the duo continued under the name Afasi & Filthy until 2009 when they separated and Herbert Munkhammar (Afasi) decided to join Maskinen. Afasy also eventually became part of another singing duo Ansiktet. He was featured as a guest singer in Grandmaster Flash album The Bridge (Concept of a Culture) on the song "We Speak Hip Hop".

Magnus Lidehäll continued with a successful producing and songwriting career, most notably writing "Cupid Boy" (2010) for Kilie Minogue's album Aphrodite. He co-wrote and produced (together with Bloodshy & Henrik Jonback) two songs "How I Roll" and "Trip To Your Heart" (2011) for Britney Spears, album Femme Fatale. He was also writer and producer for Sky Ferreira single "One" and Lena Philipsson single "Idiot". He has also worked with producers such as Bloodshy & Avant, Sebastian Ingrosso.
