He was featured on the Shady Records album Eminem Presents: The Re-Up with Eminem and his record label, while performing solo on songs "Everything is Shady" and "Talkin' All That", and released The County Hound EP in 2007. In August 2011 on his mixtape Roof Top Vol. 1, in the intro, Cashis revealed that he is leaving Shady Records but is remaining with Bogish Brand Entertainment. His debut album The Art of Dying after many delays, was released independently on October 30, 2012 and failed to chart in the U.S.
1997-2007: Signing to Shady Records 
Cashis formed a rap group named "The Renegadez" with H-Bone and Monique (also the mother of one of his eleven children), and they sent a demo tape to Eminem's Shady Records label hoping for a record deal. Monique was murdered in 1999.
By 2004, Cashis was regarded as the "rap king of Orange County" and attracted the attention of Shady Records A&R, Dart Parker, who signed him after hearing his mixtape, Stars With Stripes. Cashis’s introduction to the masses, however, wouldn’t come until 2006 when he appeared alongside Eminem, 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks on "You Don't Know" the first single from the platinum-selling Shady Records compilation, Eminem Presents: The Re-Up. His first solo release was the charting The County Hound EP, in May 2007. The County Hound EP reached number 106 on the US Billboard 200 and 37 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
2009-present: The Art of Dying 
In 2009 Cashis promised he would have an album in stores by September. However the album was pushed back, allegedly due to projects from Eminem and 50 Cent. He would wait to release his album and then request his release from Shady Records which was not finalized until 2012. In promotion of his debut LP Cashis released the Church on the Move mixtape. His debut full length album titled The Art of Dying was released independently on October 30, 2012 with features coming from Rick Ross, Game, K-Young and Royce da 5'9" among others. Eminem also produces one song on the album titled "You Think That Im Crazy". Neither the album or any of the songs on it have charted in the U.S.
After this release he planned to release his second studio album Euthanasia, which he claimed was 65% done in September 2012. His second stuido album will feature production from Jake One and Eminem. On December 25, 2012 Cashis released another mixtape titled Loose Cannon which was previously going to be the title of his third studio album. On April 30, 2013 Cashis released the first single from his newly titled second studio album County Hound 2, titled "Layin in the Cut" which was produced by Eminem and Rikanatti. The second single from County Hound 2 titled, "Mind on My Money (Money on My Mind)" was released to iTunes on May 16, 2013. The song features rappers Kuniva from D12, Obie Trice and Dirty Mouth.
