For the past three years he has been working with Dennis Livingston's Revolutionary Entertainment label.
"Since I have been working with Revolutionary Entertainment, I have gotten the opportunity of recording songs with Queen Ifrica, Gyptian, Albarosie and others. I also released an album titled Plead My Cause which has been doing pretty well," he said.
