After early experiments with beat-making and recording himself on his boombox, his rapping earned the attention of The Source and executives at Columbia Records.

He attended Camp Airy for many years of his childhood in Thurmont, Maryland, where he would routinely perform and host a radio show under the name “Ebba Ebba”.

He eventually secured an apprenticeship with producer Disco D after multiple trips to New York City from his home in Virginia to meet with labels and producers.

He was mentored for several years by songwriter and producer Dr. Luke, who signed him to his production company Kasz Money Productions.

While he was under Dr. Luke’s tutelage, he co-produced and co-wrote many songs, including hits such as Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”, Kesha’s “TiK ToK”, and Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite”
