Performing alongside long time collaborator K21, he has shared the stage with acts such as Jedi Mind Tricks, Celph Titled, Ill Bill (Non Phixion), Evidence (Dilated Peoples), Brad Strut, Funkoars and more. Studio wise, the past 4 years have seen him feature on and assist in the making of numerous local and international albums and most recently his solo 12” record Nasty Ill Filthy, produced by Amayze.
His debut LP Idle Hands is well under construction and features production by Suffa (Hilltop Hoods), Trials (Funkoars), Sesta (Funkoars), K21, Tommy Illfigga and Megatroid.
