Growing up, the young creative developed an eclectic taste in music, listening to the work of artists such as Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G., and Kiss through to John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and various punk acts, eventually inspiring him enough to begin penning his own lyrics and pursue a career in music.
He first began to establish a presence on the scene when he gave the beat for his track "Dope Man" to fellow New York rapper Troy Ave, resulting in Ave's "All About the Money," before following up with his own track, "Run Ricky Run."

The track appeared on his debut mixtape, Concrete Rose, which saw release in 2015 and also included the singles "Gun Fu" and "Super Flexin" as well as featuring a host of collaborators such as Stoney tha Dealer, Dave East, and Keith Ape, and production work from Fame School Slim.
