In the late ’90s, Blacc formed the rap duo Emanon, and toured and recorded with members of the collective Lootpack before going solo in 2003. In 2006, indie label Stones Throw issued Blacc’s debut "Shine Through." Three years later, Blacc began work on the album that would change his life and career called "Good Things." This year, Blacc made his first major-label debut via XIX Recordings/Interscope Records in September with the release of his EP, “Wake Me Up." Blacc has also been in the studio working on his upcoming album, "Lift Your Spirit," with such songwriters and producers as Pharrell, DJ Khalil and Harold Lilly, among others.
He performed "Can You Do This," on the show in January 2014, and the song was used in Ellen's Super Bowl commercial.
