He had a minor hit in 1994, "Why Is It? (Funk Dat)". The song was originally titled "Fuk Dat" but was changed to gain radio airplay. It was run frequently on MTV and its video was featured on Beavis & Butthead.
In 1994 he produced a follow up single, "Luvstuff". "Luvstuff" was remixed by Armand Van Helden. "Luvstuff" was released by FFRR Records and gained play in clubs in the UK. Each single was present at Christmas time in the UK Singles Chart in 1993 and 1994. "Luvstuff" gained support from DJs such as Pete Tong, Jon Carter and Judge Jules.
In 1994 he released his album, My Poem Is... The World According To Sagat, containing his hits "Funk Dat" and "Luvstuff". It was released on the New York house label, Maxi Records. He recorded one record, "Mr. Phat", under the alias, 'Blaksam'.
Sagat had to abandon the name due to intellectual property laws (he named himself after the Street Fighter character, who is owned by Capcom), but is an active producer in Baltimore, known as Jump "Chico" Slamm. He also ditched the eyepatch seen in the FUNK DAT music video. There are currently no confirmed updates on replacement accessories.
