In 2005, he released his first official single R U Ready and his album JA 2 LA 2 DI World. Sales were strong in Japan, but it wasn't until 2007 that Jamaica began to know E-Dee as he burst on to the local music scene when his collaboration with Irie Love, Revolution, hit the top ten in Jamaica.

At the same time, his feature on Ms. Triniti's hit Bounce Along, landed in the Top 20 Billboard R&B/Hip hop, single sales charts.

In 2010, he made the Jamaican top ten charts again with Rightful Place. In 2011, E-Dee starred in Out the Gate, a feature film based on his life. The film was released to theatres in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Toronto and Jamaica.
