When he was released, he moved to NYC and met Busta Rhymes who, rumour has it, heard him sing in a club bathroon and he gave him a contract.
He made a deal with Jive Records and began making his first album.
The first song that made it to public was Raise Up and since it was produced by Timbaland, it gained a lot of popularity. It played on MTV and radio a lot and was even featured in one of the Billboard’s lists.
His debut album was called Diary of a Sinner : 1st Entry.
In 2003, his debut album was nominated for a Grammy, but he didn’t win the award since Eminem did.
He wasn’t discouraged and he was releasing his second album called Still Writing in My Diary: 2nd Entry. It was number 4 on Billboard.
“Freek-a-Leek”, a song which was the lead song of the album, became Petey’s most famous song in his whole career.
It was produced by Lil Jon and it received only positive comments.
After this album, he decided to take a break from music. In that break, he created his music house called Carolina Music Group.
He soon released a song in 2010, it was called “Go” and it was produced by Timbaland.
He also made a mixtape which was written when he was in prison, it was called Carolina #1.

He did write a few more songs later and posted them to soundcloud, but they haven’t been a success.
He wrote an athem for fans of Carolina Panthers called “Carolina Colors”. The song was loved by Rolling Stone.
He also pursued his acting career before in life. In 2002, he played himself in the movie Drumline. He perfomed a few of his songs for the movie, too.
In 2009, heappeared in Just Another Day and he played B-Bone. Later, he also was on the Empire and performed there again.
