Adams started recording songs on his Macbook in 2008 from his college dorm room. Over the course of the next two years, he recorded a large amount of material that would be used on his later releases. He was always told it was a “pipe dream” and practically impossible in this day and age without signing a major deal.
In early 2009, he emerged into the music industry with his release of "I Hate College (Remix)," a remix of Asher Roth's "I Love College," on YouTube which went viral. He was asked across the country to open for Drake, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Mike Posner, Curren$y, and Tiesto (to name a few). He released his first ever EP, Boston's Boy, on March 4, 2010, which debuted at number one on the iTunes hip-hop chart within hours of dropping. His song "Driving Me Crazy" which sampled Annie Lennox’s hit “Walking On Broken Glass” hit #8 on iTunes hip-hop singles chart. The EP managed to reach #73 on The Billboard 200 without a record label.
