JUNK started off his career early. At the age of 14 he was hosting weekly Hip-Hop nights at bars/clubs and winning every local rap competition he entered, which ultimately made him become the undisputed freestyle rap battle champion of Vancouver. In 2011 JUNK won the MTV hosted “End Of The Weak” national freestyle competition in Toronto, Canada, which secured him a spot in Paris to represent Canada, where he took 3rd place in the world. In the same year he would co-create the Vancouver cult rap duo Northwest Division with rapper Hungry. The albums they made garnered a great deal of attention, and had them open for some of raps biggest names: Jack Harlow, Method Man, Redman, Yelawolf, Machine Gun Kelly, Chef Raekwon, Action Bronson, Mobb Deep, Hopsin, Talib Kweli, Hilltop Hoods, and Ghostface Killah.

In 2016 JUNK signed to underground rap legend Snak The Ripper’s label Stealth Bomb Records, and released his first solo album “I AM NO ONE” which charted in the top 40 Canadian iTunes rap charts and then followed that album up with his 2017 “Stupid & Ugly” release which has hit over the 10M stream mark on all platforms.  In 2019 JUNK and fellow SBR signee and previous JUNK collaborator Young Stitch decided to make an album entitled “LIONS EAT GOATS”. The album went number one for a week on the Canadian iTunes rap charts bumping out Eminem for top spot. As if that wasn’t enough he was also nominated for a WCMA Breakout Artist of The Year and for Best Breakout Artist at the OWL awards. In 2022 he released his album “Wake Me Up When It’s Over” – and he bumped Kendrick Lamar’s long awaited new album out of 2nd place to to 3rd for 48 hours on the Canadian Hip Hop charts.  JUNK is in his prime and is showing no signs of slowing down.
