I make music.

Sometimes by myself, sometimes with rappers, sometimes with singers and songwriters, sometimes for companies, and sometimes for people who want to dance. 

I've released two solo albums, For My Mother (2012) and What If It Doesn't Get Better? (2016). I've released rap records with Toki Wright, Guante, Chance York, The Tribe and Big Cats, and Ryan Kopperud. I've made songs with BJ The Chicago Kid, Mac Miller, P.O.S, Sage Francis, Lizzo, Caroline Smith, Eric Mayson, and many others. 

I've made music for Nike, CNN, The Golden State Warriors, PBS, Johnson and Johnson, and Martell. 

I've shared stages with Atmosphere, Brother Ali, P.O.S., Dessa, DJ Qbert, Schoolboy Q, DMX, Action Bronson, Riff Raff, and many others.
