(Game Dream Struggle), which included him and his friend King Dub. They recorded their first group mixtape “Where West Meets South” and released it in 2009, which was received quite well around their local and hometown areas. KingDub then moved out of the state, so Cudlino began working on his solo projects. He released his debut solo mixtape “Love 1, Trust None” in 2011, and then his second mixtape “Linoville” in 2013.
