Wisdom has independently released several projects over the years. In 2011, he released an exclusively physical series of 4 EP’s [Wisdom Teeth] that went on to be re-released digitally in 2013. An EP, One, was released shortly after. A year went by and Wisdom debuted his alternative flare on X’s & O’z, followed by Tides of War III, a collaborative mixtape. All of these projects debuted on the top 100 hip-hop albums charts on iTunes, with X’s & O’z also making its way to the top 200 alternative albums charts.
This was followed by extensive touring and the release of several popular remixes, such as 7 Years, which brought in millions of streams.
Cryptic Wisdom was eventually signed to EMPIRE Distribution and released his debut EP, Chapter 3, which peaked at #41 on the Billboard r&b/hip-hop charts, #9 on the iTunes hip-hop charts and #5 in all genres on Google Play.
