It was the 2009 season, which he sat out, that made him a musician. He initially took to music to pass the time. He later released College Humor in 2010. It started out as a joke for his baseball teammates, however, when it was viewed by almost 2 million people on social media, Stud got serious about music. Soon after, he released another hit titled In This Life. It featured Alex Lagemann, a famous West Coast rapper.
