By 2013 his fan-base had massively expanded in growing support for his creative and clever twist on rap & hip-hop – and by 2014 he broke the internet with the release of his second solo project, Remember The Name.
And according to internet music-charts and reactions from all over the globe, the people DID Remember The Name; they did through the music and they did through his video-work.
