During the 2000s he issued dozens of 7" singles, mostly on VP Records.
In 2009, he was featured in the dancehall remix to Jamie Foxx's "Blame It". Marshall's single "Messing With My Heart", featuring Mavado, from his third album was released in November 2010. Marshall collaborated with the British musician Toddla T on the track "Streets So Warm", which was released as the third single from his 2011 album Watch Me Dance.
