The lead single “They Don’t’ Know” was called “one of the hottest songs on the radio right now” by Vibe magazine and reached #4 on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart. His second single “Bitches Be Like” released in early 2014. A “smash hit” according to XXL magazine, the track received heavy rotation by leading digital broadcasters Sirius XM radio and Music Choice.
