He dropped his first solo mixtape, A Breath of Fresh Heir soon after, and followed that up with his first full length release, The Headphone with it's red-lining single, "Repeat." In 2012 he dropped the critically acclaimed LP, Water, with the much buzzed about single "Bossed Up." His latest project, Peephole/Beach, is available on iTunes with Chaos Theory slated to drop this fall.
