Creating music with strong narratives that reflect his life struggles, Mr. Criminal earned his first break when he met rapper Mr. Capone-E in 2001 at a low-rider car show. The two artists recorded an album called “Criminal Mentality”, released on Capone-E’s Thump Records Music Group that gained widespread international popularity in 2003.

Since then Mr. Criminal has been working with notable recording artists and producers including Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Nate Dogg, Fingazz, Fat Joe of Terror Squad, Twista, Lil Flip, Glasses Malone, Suga Free, Mr. Capone-E, Spider Loc of G-Unit, Kokane, Roscoe, Triple C, Lil Cuete, DTTX, Shade Sheist and others.

In 2006, the release of Mr. Criminal’s most anticipated album, Stay On The Streets, with the hit single “We Ride”, featuring Bizzy Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, gained national radio success throughout the United States, providing the opportunity for Mr. Criminal to tour with Hip-Hop group G-Unit.

However, his fame had been shortly sidetracked after multiple charges with the law, most notably in 2008 when state troopers searched his vehicle in Arizona and was charged with possession of illegal firearms and marijuana.

After being released from confinement, Mr. Criminal worked hard to get his life back on track by continuing to create and write music about his experiences with crime and the law. On Billboard Music, Mr. Criminal’s track, “Death Before Dishonor” was charted #31 in the Heatseekers Album category and #64 in the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums category; Rise 2 Power was charted #37 in the Heatseekers Album category and #65 in the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums category, and Criminal Mentality 2 was charted #47 on the Heatseekers Album category. As of 2017, Mr. Criminal has 34 albums available for purchase. In 2017 he left Hi Power Entertainment and formed his own record label named Crime Family Entertainment.
