In 2004 he released "Trouble", his first LP. He entered tops with his songs and top five on the Billboard Hot 100. After two years it was released "Konvicted" and he had a great success. At a moment he had nine songs in the Billboard Hot 100. This album includes collaborations with famous hip- hop artists. Some of the songs on that album that had great success are "Smack That", "I Wanna Love You", "Don't Matter", "Mama Africa", "Sorry, Blame It on Me" and "Never Took The Time". These all are singles.

Quotes :

- "I really don't bite my tongue for anybody and I always felt like if you're going to be real, you got to be truthful all the way around the board. Lies only make things worse. But it got to a point where my coming out like that ended up being a mistake."

- "I don't even believe in conflict diamonds. That's just a movie. Think about it. Ain't nobody thought about nothing about no conflict diamonds until the movie came out."
