As an actor, he starred as Jeff Campbell in the first season of What I Like About You, as George Logan in Scary Movie 3 and 4, as Dan Sanders in 5, and as Derek in National Lampoon's Pledge This!.
In 1995, Rex was introduced to television audiences by MTV who hired Rex to work as a VJ and kept him on the air for over two years. Rex soon after hit fame and popularity delving into acting, and in 1999, he was cast in the comedy-drama television series Jack & Jill , which aired on The WB channel for two seasons. He appeared as Eli in the TV show Felicity and television guest appearances followed including Baywatch, Everwood, and Summerland. From 2002 to 2003, Rex starred in the first season of The WB's sitcom What I Like About You.

Rex entered the music industry in 2005 as a rap artist after becoming friends with and discovering Mickey Avalon. Rex adopted his alter-ego Dirt Nasty and formed the rap group Dyslexic Speedreaders with Avalon & Andre Legacy. Rex both produced and was featured on the group’s hit song "My Dick". Again the group paired with Lil Jon to create the song "What Do You Say" which was featured in 2009’s blockbuster comedy film, The Hangover.
In 2007, Rex released his self-titled debut album which included viral video exposure from the videos for the songs 1980, Cracker Ass Fantastic & Dropping Names. He followed up this release with his second album - Nasty as I Wanna Be - in 2011 which featured Ke$ha, LMFAO, Too Short, Warren G and more. Viral videos for "I Can’t Dance" and "Nasty As I Wanna Be" helped further build his online persona.

As Three Loco the group teamed up with producer Diplo and released the group’s eight-song EP on Diplo’s own Mad Decent label.
