Cage penned one of the landmark records of the golden era of NYC underground/independent rap music in the late 90s on Fondle 'em records.The record was called Agent Orange b/w Radio Head.The record propelled Cage into cult star status. + After a few more singles with Fondle 'Em, Cage formed The Smut Peddlers with The High Mighty on Rawkus records. The record sold over 50 thousand copies and solidified Cage's status as a rising rap star in the independent scene. + Cage went on to do more records with Eastern Conference records.
His solo debut Movies for the Blind was the realization of the very character he became through his tortured early years, relying on raw, savage, often cruel, misogynistic, gritty and rebellious attitudes he had formed through his earlier years. The record struck a chord, selling 15 thousand copies in just 2 weeks, and his legion of dedicated fans grew ever bigger, attracted to his visceral and dangerous persona and music. He traveled the world several times over in support of the record and became a major draw in the independent show circuit. In 2004 he signed with Definitive Jux records releasing his 2nd solo album Hell's Winter.The album features production from El-P,DJ Shadow and collaborations with Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) and Daryl Palumbo (GlassJaw/Head Automatica). The record received critical acclaim and in 2006 the video for Shoot Frank (the 2nd single off of Hell's Winter)was nominated for an MTVu Woodie award for best video.
Cage is currently in development with Shia Labeouf about a Cage movie.
