Miller has independently released two EP’s: 2012’s Spotlight and 2013’s The Road Less Traveled, which debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart. His full-length album, 2013’s Us Against Them, sold over 33,000 copies and peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Rap chart. One of MTV’s 2014 “Artist to Watch” artists, Miller has shared stages with Mac Miller, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston, Asher Roth, Jason Derulo, Cody Simpson, Austin Mahone, and Sammy Adams at various radio festivals, including Y-100’s Jingle Ball and the Calle Ocho Festival in Miami, where he performed for a crowd of more than 200,000 screaming fans.
