On June 25, 2010 The first mixtape that started it all and the birth of Roc Muzik Entertainment was the Universal Swag Vol.III mixtape a 10-track mixtape (Excluding intro / outro) which was the sucessor of Universal Swag Vol.1 and Universal Swag Vol.II which were released under different labels and put the Delaware rapper in a position where he wanted to be which was an underground rapper on the rise. From there his career seemed to take off managing to put up a 100 streams and 10 downloads just within the first month of it's release which Raq saw as an improvementamt and his ability to tell stories in his rhymes weather to be real or fiction were starting to grow. After the sucess of the mixtape Raq decided to join forces with YM(formly known as Young Money) and Young Duece who were also tearing up the underground scene with there smash hit single "Not Around Here". But it didnt turn out the way Raq had planned, as a group they released two singles and two videos to go with it getting favorable reviews from it and generating alot of hype, but it didnt last. In the fall of 2010 a few weeks after Raq's 20th birthday the video Goin In with he colaborated with fellow labelmates YM and Young Duece had dropped on the internet on youtube and had gained the group some major buzz in there city whcih set them to make plans about releasing a group mixtape and going on city wide tour to promote themselfs and group to be taking serious, but due to creative differences Rocc decided to leave the We Around / H.T.E Music Group and re-lauch his own record label Roc Muzik Entertainment.
