While living in Brooklyn, he worked as a session bassist for Aaron "Freedom" Lyles of Ain't Nuthin' Free Productions (Angie Stone, Charlie Wilson, Hi-Five) and Da Beatminerz (Heltah Skeltah, Smif-n-Wessun, Black Moon). A couple of session partners put him in contact with a few producers in Atlanta. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Georgia.
