On his YouTube channel, RiceGum made posts of various kinds of videos games with his first being Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The 9 minutes gaming video was followed with a number of diss tracks, funny skits and music videos which helped him gain popularity on the YouTube Platform.
Making a further effort to expand, RiceGum collaborated with a U.S-based entertainment and gaming network known as Machinima.
