As he continued to gain confidence he performed at open mic spots such as Annie’s Art Gallery, Busboys and Poets, Twelve Lounge and Pure Poetry. Mackey has showcased his talent at Wheaton High School for international night in 2011, Miss Caribbean in 2012 and in 2013 events where the mayor of Baltimore was present. He performs for house and private events as well. Mackey Solo was the January 2012 winner of the Hype Life song competition held in Queens, New York. This gave him the opportunity to launch his first official music video “Creep Up Pon Har”, which was featured on Hype Life TV and broadcast on YouTube channels. The next music video followed was “Hear Me” which you can also find on ZulanObrien.com. His third official music video “Take My Breath Away” is also doing well.

His music is also available on Amazon.com. Mackey Solo released a mixtape in 2013 entitled “Blue Moon”. The Blue Moon mixtape was influenced because of the originality and unique reggae music in the DMV and also in Jamaica. “My music speaks for itself, you just need to listen and give it a chance. I promise that you will feel it.” Mackey stated. He has also performed at many Jamaican Dancehall/Reggae events over the past couple of years including The Baltimore Jerk Fest and Reggae in the Capitol.
