Sim began rapping in his mid-teens, and at the age of 16 he began recording with the independent record label Custom Cutts. After a two-year stint with Custom Cutts, he was working and attending school when he was discovered by super producer Jeremy "Yogi" Graham, who paired SIM up with Morock and Freddy Blassy. The three then formed the group HoodFellaz. In 2001, HoodFellaz were signed to Hip-Hop mogul Puff Daddy’s , Bad Boy Records. While on the label as an artist, SIM also did some ghostwriting, writing for several artists including DIDDY. He artistically partook in the creation of hits such as "Peaches and Cream"remix feat.
