Once his sound went mainstream to the listeners, his fan base grew even larger. He has worked alongside producer Prestige Vanderpool(formerly of Bad Boy's in-house production team and whose roster of talent includes Jay-Z, P Diddy, Biggie Smallson Notorious). As a songwriterhe penned a track on the 2002 album "Two Hands Clapping," by reggae singer Snow, and worked with Jamaican performers BunjiGarlin and Fay-Ann Lyons as well. Hismetamorphosis into a respected Hip Pop artist started with his exposure to the world, traveling as a performer from Vienna, to Spain, Italy and beyond. It allowed him to experience a broader audience and a more popular music sound.
