Considered as one of the pioneers of the ‘Spaza’ movement, where lyrics are performed in a combination of isiXhosa, English and Cape Flats slang, his music has been on heavy rotation on community and campus radio stations (such as Zibonele, Bush Radio and UCT Radio).
Rattex signed with Pioneer Unit Records upon his contributions to both the Drudge Dialect Vol. 1 and the Planetary Assault compilations in 2006 and 2007.
His EP "7784" was released in early 2008, followed by his debut album "Bread and Butter" the same year with production by Dplanet, Hipe, Nyambz and Planet Earth.
