In 2009, Hanley signed to Carson-based independent record label Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) and in late 2011, secured a recording contract with major label Interscope Records. Hanley is also a member of hip hop group Black Hippy, along with label-mates and fellow West Coast rappers Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar.
