He established himself as a solo artist with the hit “Like a Pimp,” featuring Lil Flip, and produced T.I’s. 2004 hit single “Rubber Band Man.”

He also emerged as an outspoken advocate for hip hop music during the 2007 Congressional hearing on sexist, misogynistic and racist themes in the media (with an emphasis on hip hop music and culture). And he was a visible advocate for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. He has also widened his spectrum of work by producing music for commercials for Gatorade, Mercedes-Benz and Marvel.
