Potap used to be part of the hip-hop group called Vkhid u Zminnomu Vzutti (Вхід у Змінному Взутті) in 2006. He produced one album when he was in this group titled "Prosto". He also made three video clips to the songs Shtolnya, Prosto and Super and a soundtrack to the movie "Shtolnya". During the time he was in VUZV he sang in Ukrainian. Potap now sings with Nastya Kamenskih in Russian and they have released many great hits that are avidly listened to in Ukraine and Russia. Their musical duet has been a great success ever since their first song "Ne para".
In 2014 he and Kamenskih were criticised in Ukraine for continuing to attend award ceremonies in Russia while many Ukrainians believed their country was a victim of Russian aggression. On this they responded: "It's a shame that we have to collect the journalists to tell that we are from Ukraine and love our country!"
