Ganxsta NIP’s first album The South Park Psycho was released in 1992. There was no single to promote the album but it charted at #63 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and sold almost 100,000 copies in the area to land him a deal with Priority Records. His second solo album Psychic Thoughts (Are What I Conceive) charted on the Billboard 200 at #151, at #30 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at #5 on the Top Heatseekers. His style of rap was hardcore gangsta rap with gory lyrical content, which is called horrorcore.[citation needed]

After his 2003 album The Return!!! (of the Psychopath) NIP took a break before making a comeback with Still Psycho five years later. Ganxsta NIP’s most recent album, Psych' Swag: Da Horror Movie, consists of 14 songs and was released on the artist's own record label Psych Ward Entertainment.[3]
