He began his career as a vocalist in the mid-1980s before eventually signing to Eazy-E‘s Ruthless Records label in late 1989. His debut album, Addictive Hip Hop Muzick, was released in 1991, on which he was credited as “Who Am I?” to avoid infringing on laws which forbade the use of his usual moniker. His first solo single, “Nickel Slick Nigga”, appeared on the Deep Cover soundtrack. In addition to co-writing “Appetite for Destruction” for N.W.A‘s Niggaz4life, Long also contributed to other West Coast gangsta rap albums such as Above the Law‘s Black Mafia Life.
For his second album, 1994’s Funk Upon a Rhyme, Long drastically changed his style, incorporating a great deal of singing and an eccentric form of G-funk. He would leave Ruthless Records shortly after Eazy-E’s death in 1995. He was supposed to be on Tupac Shakur‘s One Nation collaboration album, alongside others, before Shakur’s murder in 1996 cut plans for the album short. He continued to make guest appearances until releasing his third solo album through Eureka Records in 1999, entitled They Call Me Mr. Kane.
