While on probation in his early twenties, Kontages turned to his writing for release. These writings became a body of work called “Collection of Thoughts” which was released September of 2010.
A song titled “My Lifetime” off of that album was submitted to a song writing contest by the State of Nebraska. Kontages was chosen to represent the State in the “Tune My Life” campaign. This campaign allowed Kontages to come into contact with Grammy Award winning engineer ND Rock.
Since then Kontages has been on a roll. First, going on tour with Murphy Lee throughout the Midwest, then opening up for artists such as Rittz, Tech N9ne , Krizz Kaliko, Stevie Stone, Big K.R.I.T., Dee-1, Snow Tha Product, CES Cru, Jarren Benton, Dizzy Wright, Demrick, and Caskey.
