Musical career[edit]

7 months later, He releases Underage and Underrated under his new and current stage name. In this project, he was accompanied by a new mentor and hosting Disk Jockey, DJ Skaz Digga ; who is also the official DJ for retired artist Big Daddy Kane. This projects success highly overshadowed his last receiving over 3,000 internet downloads in the first day.[10]
