Although he admitted to having ties to the “Lincoln Park Bloods” gang when he was a teenager, Cannon graduated from Monte Vista High School in Spring Valley in 1998, where he served as president of the African Student Coalition and competed in track and field.
Cannon appeared on the Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius soundtrack in 2001 after signing with Jive Records, performing a cover of the 1988 hit song “Parents Just Don't Understand” with Romeo Miller and 3LW.
Cannon's 2003 self-titled first album featured the single “Your Pops Don't Like Me (I Really Don't Like This Dude)” as well as other songs. Cannon established his own record company, Can-I-Ball Records, in 2005 with the intention of releasing Stages, his second studio album, later that year.
