Roscoe was initially introduced to hip hop by his older brother Kurupt, who, at the time was signed to Death Row Records and working on his debut album with Tha Dogg Pound, Dogg Food. Kurupt flew Roscoe out to California, and bought him to Death Row’s studios to see him rap. Roscoe was impressed with what he saw and began meeting with his brother in the studio regularly, and eventually began writing his own songs. He made his first appearance on his brother’s album Tha Streetz Iz a Mutha, featuring on the songs "I Call Shots" and "Girls All Pause" along with Nate Dogg. Daz Dillinger was impressed with Roscoe, and helped to produce his debut mixtape, "When The Pain Inflict", which was released in 2001. Thanks to the positive reception of his mixtape, Roscoe signed with Priority Records and immediately got to work on his debut album, Young Roscoe Philaphornia, released in 2003. The album peaked at #22 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
On October 17, 2013, Roscoe released his most recent mixtape Tha Influence, featuring guest appearances from Xzibit and Kendrick Lamar. The mixtape features production by Best Kept Secret, Bink!, Charlie Red 3000, Fingazz, Hi-Tek, Jahlil Beats, Jake One, Just Blaze, Mike WiLL Made It, Nottz, Statik Selektah and Tone Mason. On November 11, 2014, he released his third studio album titled Scoe, Tha Influence Album, also the first project to be released under his new label, 3D Shadez Entertainment . The album features Too Short, Kurupt, Kobe, Clyde Carson, Xzibit, KJ Konteh, Yummy Bingham, E-Note, All Star and K Young, with Roscoe taking a more musical approach by using live musicians rather than producers.
