The musician rose to prominence as a hip-hop producer, working with the likes of Pitbull and Chris Brown, before embracing his love of country music as he embarked on a solo career.

Brown earned a 3x multi-Platinum certification from the RIAA for his smash hit "The Git Up", which stayed atop Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart for 12 weeks.

"The Git Up" was often cited as a companion piece to Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" in a wave of country/hip-hop fusion a year ago. His debut album, Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs, was released by BBR last October.
