In 2014, he collaborated with Toni Braxton and released the Grammy Award-winning album Love, Marriage & Divorce.

He also teams up with Ari Lennox; Kehlani; Queen Naija, Coco Jones; Tiana Major9; Tink; Baby Tate; Muni Long; Amaarae; Sevyn Streeter & Tkay Maidza; Doechii and Angie Martinez & Lala Anthony.
