Cory has worked with and produced for numerous artists such as Rittz, Kydd, LOEGz, Stunnaman from "The Pack," and Western Tink to name a few as well as many other musicians from all over Texas, Oregon and other regions. Not only has he accompanied fellow LNS Crew member and Austin artist Kydd Jones on his official SXSW and A3C performances for the past 3 years (where they have received great reviews and exposure from the massive music festivals). Most recently in December 2012 he joined Kydd and the rest of the LNS Crew on stage in LA where they got the opportunity via RedBull Soundstage to open up and build with Chuck D of the iconic group Public Enemy amongst many other legendary pioneers of the art on the very popular and blogged about Hip-Hop Gods Tour.

His first solo project, "The UnMixTape", is currently available for free download online. His most recent release, "Free Beer," has had much success and has also been mentioned on several reputable hip-hop blogs. Cory has received great reviews about his contributions to the recent release of the collaborative "This is the LNS Crew" compilation tape where he demonstrates his versatility and range as an artist. Some of his many inspirations are artists like The Fugees, Nirvana, Tupac, OutKast, J Dilla, 9th Wonder and Frank Sinatra. It's definitely safe to say there's a wide variety of music in his undefinable sound that will have you entertained and keep you asking what's next for the 23 year old emcee/producer.
