During his time, he has performed solo on stages all across B.C. selling independently nearly one and half thousand CD’s, in addition to another thousand through various charity projects. He has opened for and toured with some of North Americas hottest hip hop groups, including Swollen Members, 2 Live Crew, Winnipeg's Most, Conspirituality, and Sweatshop Union to name a few. Mister Waugh is always committed to producing high quality music that reflects who he is as an artist, as well as high in energy and sound.
