He started writing his first tune when he was 13 called Mbanje. Which can be translated to Ganja this song become a anthem amongst the yutes of his age at the time. He then did his first recording when he was in high school under a label called Mix masters the tune featured his friends Berven Sky B and Elvis E. He then got noticed by Many Producers after this song which was a dancehall tune. His follow up tune Blaze up the Chaiwa was a big tune again that it appeared on a High School Compilation
