Kutt would release his debut album, B.L.E.V.E. (standing for Boiling Liquid Expanding Viscous Explosion), on August 10, 2004. The album features several appearances by the man he had performed hype duties for, Tech N9ne, as well as other local rappers, Krizz Kaliko, BG Bulletwound and fellow label mates Skatterman & Snug Brim. The album didn't perform well on the charts, only making an appearance on Billboard's "Top Heatseekers (West North Central)" chart.
After a long hiatus for most of its artists, Strange Music would find a new distribution deal in 2006, and thus a schedule of releases was mapped out. Summer 2007 was originally the projected release time for his second album, Feature Presentation. Strange Music would see a delay in their release schedule however, and Kutt Calhoun would instead record and release the album on October 7, 2008. The album saw features from his label mates Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko and Skatterman & Snug Brim once again, though it also featured several other local rappers such as The Popper, E-Skool, Paul Mussan and BG Bulletwound. The second album performed better on the charts than his debut, reaching #60 on Billboard's "Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums" as well as charting #19 on the "Top Heatseekers" chart. A music video was shot for the song "Bunk Rock Bitch," and the video was released by the Record Label through their YouTube account on January 15, 2009. The video features fellow label mates Tech N9ne and Krizz Kaliko.
Raw and Un-Kutt
Kutt Calhoun released his third album, Raw and Un-Kutt on June 8, 2010. Singles from the album include: "Naked (Boom Boom Room)" and "Get Kutt". Features include Brotha Lynch Hung, E-40, Joe Budden, Tech N9ne, Too Short, among others. On May 26, 2010, XXL premiered the video for "Naked (Boom Boom Room)" on their website.
Calhoun released his fourth album, Black Gold on February 26, 2013. The album was supported by two singles: "Self Preservation" and "I Been Dope". The album features guest appearances from Krizz Kaliko, Brotha Lynch Hung, Tech N9ne, BG Bulletwound, Snug Brim, Bishop Don Dotta, Ben-G Da Prince of Soul, The Popper, Ron Ron and Nesto The Owner.  Black Gold debuted at number 120 on the Billboard Hot 200 and number 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums.
Departure from Strange Music
On September 22, 2014, Calhoun announced that he is no longer signed to the Strange Music label, but that they're still on good terms. Calhoun went on to start his own record label, Black Gold Entertainment. He plans to release an EP under the label in summer 2015.

On July 10th, 2015 he released Kuttin Loose and it was supported by the single "Handz Up"
