He released his debut extended play " The Island Kid" in 2017, followed by the full-length albums "HALO" in 2019 and "X" in 2020.

Park was later employed at a web development company prior to moving to South Korea in 2016. He then moved to Korea in pursuit of his music career after Jay Park reached out to him via Instagram to join his newly formed record label, H1GHR MUSIC.
As the three keywords he pursues in his music are truth, positivity, and experience, he tries to contain only positive messages as much as possible, excluding alcohol, money bragging, and sexual content.
