Music career

Silkk The Shocker rose to fame in the mid-late 1990s, releasing his first record The Shocker in 1996 using the alias Silkk. After changing his name to Silkk the Shocker then went on to appear Tru's Tru 2 da Game, Mia X's Unlady Like, and Mystikal's Unpredictable. In 1998, Silkk the Shocker would feature on Master P's 1998 hit "Make 'Em Say Uhh!". Continuing on the success of the hit single, Silkk would release his next single with label-mate Mystikal as a featured artist on "It Ain't My Fault" off his second album Charge It 2 da Game. "It Ain't My Fault" gained popularity and became the trademark song for Silkk the Shocker. In that same year Silkk the Shocker would feature on, at that time a new group, Destiny's Child's single "Just Be Straight with Me", as well as, R&B singer Mýa's "Movin' On", the second single released from Mýa, her self-titled debut album.

In 1999, Mýa and Silkk collaborated on the lead single from his album Made Man. The track, titled "Somebody like Me", became one of the year's top-selling singles on the Billboard charts. He also collaborated with Trina on the remix "That's Cool". Since then, Silkk has released two solo albums: My World, My Way in 2001 and Based on a True Story in 2004. Neither release generated the same publicity he enjoyed in the late 1990s, but the former still managed to sell very well.

Silkk was later featured on World Wrestling Entertainment's Wreckless Intent album, which was released on May 23, 2006. The song he performed on the album, "I'm Comin'", has since been used as the theme song for Raw wrestler Montel Vontavious Porter. Silkk also performed former SmackDown! wrestler Orlando Jordan's theme song, "Do It Big".
