Cxlvxn created his YouTube channel on December 15, 2015 under the name 'RodTricked' and his first upload was two days later. Cxlvxn's channel mainly consisted of his Survival Games commentaries and videos. On April 19, 2016 Calvin gained his first 1,000 subscribers.

He managed to reach a 1,000 win streak in UHC Duels on Hypixel and uploaded highlights of achieving the win streak. The videos of the winstreak became the most popular videos on his channel. He ended 2017 with 7,000 subscribers. 2018 took a hit on Calvin's channel. His growth was steady, he was barely growing nor decreasing, and some videos struggled to reached 1,000 views. His videos were a lot more random in 2018, with no set gamemode or game he would consistently upload. He created many expose videos during 2018 which led to some controversy. However, 2019 came and Calvin's channel started to grow again. His videos were still fairly random, but most of them consisted of PvP.

In mid-August 2018, Calvin called out the Baccachan Guild (now disbanded) for cheating in Hypixel Duels to gain a leaderboard spot. From then on, the guild began to harass, ddos and stream snipe Calvin. On August 27 2018, Cxlvxn uploaded the video 'ENDING HYPIXEL'S #1 DUELS GUILD (Exposed) [DOXING, DDOSSING, CHEATING, HARASSMENT],' where he explained how the guild would constantly harass and stream snipe him. He also explained how the guild managed to obtain Calvin's IP, and he would be hit offline every time he streamed. The guild also attempted to dox Cxlvxn, but the dox was proven false by Cxlvxn on the expose video. The guild has since been disbanded.
On October 21, 2018, Cxlvxn made a video exposing fellow Minecraft YouTuber BoehSpam for opening a Vape GUI (Minecraft Hacked Client) h his stream. Cal claimed that the Vape GUI was simply a picture Boeh overlayed on his stream, and that he never actually cheated. Cal also claimed that Boeh planned it all out to gain more views and subscribers, which backfired. Only a day later after the expose video was released, Cxlvxn uploaded another video about BoehSpam where he showed private Twitter DMs of Boeh saying 'I live in Haddonfield if you got beef we can fight it out.' However, the fight did not happen as Boeh blocked Cal on Twitter.
On February 19, 2021, Calvin was browsing Twitter when he noticed one of his close friends was suspended on Twitter. He contacted his friend and he said that his account was falsely suspended by a verified account that was hacked and gave Cal the hacker's twitter. Cal replied to one of the hacker's tweet and said 'What's your problem' and the hacker simply replied with 'and ur next.' Cal blocked him and the next day his twitter (not @ignCalvin) was suspended for impersonation. Calvin makes a new twitter. On February 21, 2021, Tampa's mayor Bob Buckhorn's twitter was compromised by the hacker that got Calvin suspended. The hacker's first tweet on the mayor's twitter framed Cxlvxn along with meeZoid and SheepKiller for hacking the twitter account.The account then started tweeting extremely offensive, racist and sexist tweets on the account. The hacker also managed to hack Cxlvxn's Facebook and phone account. Him and his distant relatives were also pizza bombed by the hacker. Cxlvxn has uploaded 3 videos about the situation, with one of them being unlisted. In one of the videos Calvin claimed he sent all the hackers information to the police for an arrest. Since now the hacker's twitter has been suspended and the controversy has died down.
False Copyright Strikes
Between June 29 and July 3, 2021, 'McCaig Brittney' sent four copyright strikes to Cxlvxn's channel for infringement of copyright. All of these strikes were fraudelent and all content belonged to Cxlvxn. Since Calvin received four copyright strikes, his channel was going to be terminated within 7 days. In order to appeal the decision made by the claimant, Calvin had to send all his personal information to the claimant (this included his phone number, full address etc.) Only two days after he filed the appeal, he was swatted by the hacker. Calvin managed to get his channel back and later uploaded a video explaining the situation and how YouTube's copyright system was broken. Around mid August, YouTube sued Christopher Brady (aka, cbrady350) for abusing Calvin's personal information given by the DMCA to engage in swatting. Chris was also being sued for using different internet personas to send fraudulent strikes to others' channels. Chris was also sued for extorting two other YouTubers by abusing the copyright system. Before the lawsuit Calvin had suspicions that Chris was behind the false strikes. Cxlvxn was also swatted by the chinabacca clan in 2015
In mid-September, Calvin made a tweet questioning whether 'stans' know where the origins of the name 'stan' came from. Some people responded disagreeing, stating that definitions of words change over time. Calvin replied to one of these disagreements with 'i'm changing the R slur to mean sausage now. other definitions are not irrelevant. and also i am God.' The tweet received backlash, prominently from content creator stans, for being insensitive and too dark. Many suggested that Calvin use a 'tone indicator,' to explicitly suggest that the tweet was intended to be a joke. Calvin created a follow-up tweet to the situation, arguing that tone indicators were unnecessary and that his account and tweets are almost always intended to be jokes. The tweet received harsher (although still minor) backlash, with some suggesting that due to his refusal to use tone indicators, that Calvin was an ableist. Calvin shrugged off the ableism claims in the video 'Minecraft Stan Twitter SUCKS (Cxlvxn Twitter Drama),' stating that the corrolation is too far fetched. Despite efforts of cancelling Calvin, the controversy died down quickly.
Calvin is an admin of the popular Minecraft PotPvP server Minemen Club and he has made multiple videos on the server.
MC Championship is a Minecraft Tournament for YouTubers and Streamers run by the Noxcrew, in which 10 teams of four compete in a series of 8 minigames decided by the participants. A point multiplier makes each game worth more as each round passes, incentivizing teams to vote for games they might be bad at early on in the event. In the end, the two teams with the most points face off in a round of ‘Dodgebolt’ to decide the winner of the tournament. This makes it possible for a team to win despite potentially having less points than the runner-up.
