Aside from that, he also occasionally makes original songs, a lot of which are in collaboration with popular YouTubers such as Cryaotic, iDubbbz, PewDiePie, JaidenAnimations, and TheOdd1sOut. He is mostly known for his video "Don't Stay In School" which is a song addressing all the issues about what is taught in school. Another thing he is also known for is his very long hair, which is black with a streak of red on his right.
He was born in Telford, England on August 24th of 1987. As a child, he grew up in the United Arab Emirates, but moved eventually back to England as a teenager.
He launched his YouTube channel in 2007. With You and What Army, he began recording an EP titled Soundtrack to the Apocalypse in his home studio in 2009. At the start of his channel's existence, he solely focused his content around music, especially since he was a part of the band "You and What Army" from 2007 to 2014. After the band broke up, he started expanding his content style.
In 2015, his channel started becoming less active due to personal issues with depression and a lack of motivation. On July 9, he made a video discussing why he hasn't been uploading or tweeting for a while. He posted 1 other video unrelated to the subject, but then took a year to upload again. On August 10th of 2016, he uploaded the video "I'm not dead.", which was a song about his problems. He stuck to his regular upload schedule after this until October of 2017.
On April 21, 2018, he uploaded his first video in nearly six months called "My new look.". The semi-update semi-comedic video revealed that he had grown his facial hair out and dyed half of the goatee red to match up with his hair to create a new look.
On May 3rd of the same year, he shaved and revealed why he hasn't been uploading. This is the first video talking about his depression since 2016. He plans on uploading normally once again.
He collaborated with Pewdiepie and RoomieOfficial on the T-Series diss track 'congratulations'. It has since been blocked in India, along with some of Pewdiepie's other T-Series diss tracks such as 'Bitch lasagna' due to legal reasons.
