By 2012, he dropped out of college to focus on music, and in 2014 he headed out on tour with EarthGang, Bas, and Ab-Soul. A year later he dropped the DiCaprio EP, which saw him team up with a host of producers, as well as EarthGang. In 2017, he announced that he had signed to J. Cole's Dreamville label, which released the single "Never" and full-length The Never Story at the beginning of the year.
