He first gained recognition in 2008, when he began releasing tracks and videos combining performance art and slapstick comedy via MySpace and YouTube, using the name, "MTV Riff Raff". His popular videos lead to a spot on the reality show, "From G's to Gents" on MTV. His increasingly popular YouTube presence led to his 2011 signing with S.O.D. Money Gang, Inc.
