He released his first mixtape while still in high school, and immediately attracted the attention of local record labels. He signed with Top Dawg Entertainment in the early 2000s, and subsequently released another mixtape. 2008 and 2009 brought more recognition, including appearing in a music video for Jay Rock's "All My Life (in the Ghetto)", and co-signing with Lil Wayne.
