In 2014, he released a seven-minute track, entitled "Movement I, II & III", on Brainfeeder.[13] In that year, he created a new song titled "Make Money", which was included in the expanded Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack that was a part of the re-release of the game on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 systems.[14]

His second studio album, entitled Lustmore, was released in April 2015.[15]
