Career

Shortly after being introduced to Project Blowed by SP83, Psychosiz requested membership in the newly formed group Customer Service alongside SP83, Kail, Y-Not, JoeSue, A-ok, and group leader Nocando.[4]

Psychosiz formed Thirsty Fish alongside Open Mike Eagle and Dumbfoundead. The trio released the debut album Testing the Waters in 2007.[5] The second album, Watergate, was released on Mush Records in 2011.[6]

Shortly after the formation of Thirsty Fish, Psychosiz expanded the roster to include several more Los Angeles rappers to the Project Blowed scene.[7]

Psychosiz has been featured on several solo projects by Swim Team members including Sahtyre's debut album High Saht.[8]
