In 2009, he was acquitted from a gun charge in Clayton County, Georgia: he felt he had been given a second chance in life, so he turned his attentions towards advancing his career as a rapper.[1] He initially signed to the independent record label Bases Loaded[1] and released the single "Cashin' Out", which later appeared on his debut mixtape, titled It's My Time.[1] After Epic Records label head L.A. Reid heard "Cashin' Out", he requested a meeting with Gibson to ask him to sign to the label: Gibson performed a song titled "Smilin' In My Face" during the interview, which convinced Reid to sign him to Epic.[1] Following its re-release through Epic Records in March 2012,[2][3] "Cashin' Out" achieved significant commercial success in the United States, peaking at number 36 on the US Billboard Hot 100, also reaching the runner-up spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and topping the Hot Rap Songs chart.[4][5][6] The song's success has inspired many freestyles and remixes by other rappers, including Ludacris, Krayzie Bone[7] Da Brat,[8] Bow Wow,[9] Roscoe Dash,[10] c-command, Young Jeezy, Akon, Chief Keef, Fabolous and Yo Gotti, the latter four of whom appear on the song's official remix.[11] A follow-up single, "Big Booty", was released to digital retailers on July 31, 2012.[12] In May 2013, his new single "Another Country" was released with Future on the track.[13]
