In an interview with news publication of Arizona State University, The State Press, Yung Rizzo stated, "...it started when a couple of friends told me I should take music seriously and start recording. Next thing you know, I’m in the studio listening to beats, recording tracks, and touring different cities."
In 2007, Yung Rizzo released his first mixtape No Looking Back, the project was a street album due to it containing only original songs. The mixtape included "The Rain" which was his first song to be featured on airwaves, it was made available only physical copies via his official website but later was available on Datpiff.com.

Yung Rizzo returned to the studio after hiatus and revisited projects he had been working on in the previous years.
