Fiend released his first album, I Won't Be Denied in 1995 for independent label, Big Boy Records. He would then sign with No Limit in 1997 and appeared on Master P's Ghetto D and Mia X's Unlady Like before releasing his second album and first for No Limit, There's One in Every Family in 1998. The album was hugely successful, peaking at #8 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. Also in that year, Fiend appeared on Snoop Dogg's successful single, "Woof!". In 1999, Fiend released his third album, Street Life. The album peaked at #15 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, but did not do as well as his previous album and Fiend left No Limit. Fiend was also a member of the Ruff Ryders and appeared on the groups third album Ryde or Die Vol. 3: In the "R" We Trust before leaving the group in 2001. In 2000 Fiend And No Limit labelmate Mr. Serv-On collabed on Three 6 Mafia's song "Touched Wit It". This collaboration lead to Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul And Juicy J to do a group album with Fiend called Dat's How It Happened To'm. After the album Fiend started his own label, Fiend Entertainment and released three more albums, Can I Burn? 2 in 2003, Go Hard or Go Home in 2004 and The Addiction in 2006. All three albums made it to the Billboard charts but failed to gain the success as his No Limit albums. Fiend also produces music, having done production for songs on Jadakiss' Kiss tha Game Goodbye and his former labelmate, C-Murder's The Truest Shit I Ever Said.
