Dirt Nasty self-released his debut album in 2008, which featured the hit song “1980.” 2010 saw Dirt return with his second solo release, “Nasty As I Wanna Be”, that featured the likes of Kesha, LMFAO, Too $hort, Warren G and others. The song and video for “I Can’t Dance” saw spins and support from radio and television networks such as FUSE and MTV. Dirt teamed up with super-producer Diplo, Riff Raff and Andy Milonakis, to form the group Three Loco. Late 2012 saw the release of their 8-song album on Diplo's own Mad Decent record label. The album garnished the group critical acclaim from the likes of MTV, Pitchfork, Vice Magazine and Perez Hilton just to name a few.
In 2014 Dirt Nasty returned with his successful 13-track record entitled “Palatial.” Through Dirt’s social media following, constant touring & lead role in the major motion picture Scary Movie 5, Simon truly solidified his place in the public’s consciousness.
