Although he didn’t officially start recording until 2013, his speedy yet steady rise didn’t come until 2015 with songs like ‘’Try(Chip Chop)’’ and ‘’Kill Dem Anytime’’. These songs not only showcased his lyrical talents but also his ability to use his music to connect and relate to his audience. But even with this he still hadn’t reached the level he wanted.

Then things took an unexpected turn landing him in jail, but not even the justice system could prevent his rise to fame and fortune. Squash was detained for close to two months in ‘’The State Of Emergency’’ in 2018 where he was incorrectly labeled as the leader of the infamous ‘’G City ‘’ gang from St. James, a gang often referred to in the 6ix Boss’ songs. Upon his release, he gave us more songs like ‘’6ix Boss’’ and ‘’Money Fever’’.
