After college, he entered the work force while going after his dreams. In 1991, he linked up with long time friend Captain Remo and together they performed at some of New York's hottest night clubs. He was known then as Terminator. In 1993, he started recording for Rhythm One Records. He then decided to change his name to Ragga L.E.X., as the name Terminator did not match his image.
