He then teamed up with Xterminator producer Philip "Fatis" Burrell on the "Love Jah" single and the album that followed in 1998. The following year, he released Watch Over We on RAS Records.

He recorded his next album, Runaway Slave, but his career was interrupted when he received a three and a half year prison sentence, of which he served 18 months, for what he described as "just a likkle thing that happened with me and babylon".[3]
