Magnetic began receiving some national attention as early as 2005 when he produced "The Sound of Philadelphia" for Reef the Lost Cauze which went on to air on ESPN's Monday Night Countdown. In 2006, Magnetic began recording his 1st official iTunes release, "Everything's A Gamble" which showcased his beat making and rhyming abilities. It featured underground heavyweights such as: Channel Live, Sean Price, Edo G and Chino XL amongst others. While mixing "EAG" in 2007, Mag was invited to appear on the Army of the Pharaohs (AOTP) 2007 LP "Ritual of Battle". After standing out on tracks such as "Drama Theme" & "Black Christmas", Magnetic earned a spot as an official member in the Army of the Pharaohs.
Shortly after making his cameos on AOTP's album, Magnetic began doing more collaborations including appearances on Snowgoons' "Black Snow", Outerspace's "God's Fury" and a 12" vinyl release with Poland's The Returners featuring Skyzoo & El Da Sensei. He also recorded with Young Guru and KRS-One for "Stop The Violence '08", Esoteric (Spitting the FIRST #hashtag line – "In a way that seem wrong – irregular jeans")and his own DJ Whoo Kid Presents Shadyville/Dre Boogs/DJ Kwestion "The Co-Sign". Then his appearance on Jedi Mind Tricks' single "Godflesh" w. Block McCloud marked Mag's 1st Billboard chart appearance with JMT's "A History of Violence" hitting #169. Not slowing down in 2009, Magnetic recorded for various projects including: Apathy's "Wanna Snuggle?", Stoupe's "Decalogue", Quaker's project with Portishead's Geoff Barrow, King & The Cauze - Shadyville mixtape, as well as new AOTP and solo projects.
Cappadonna had known the Wu-Tang Clan members since grade school in Staten Island, and he had even decided at the age of 15 that he could write and perform lyrics. It wasn't until 1995, however, that he made his recorded debut, appearing on Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx album.
With that album, he became an official member of the Wu-Tang Killa Beez, and from there on out, he frequently appeared on Wu records. In 1996, he played a large role on Ghostface Killah's Ironman.
During 1997, his Wu affiliation continued, as he rapped on the Clan's second album, Wu-Tang Forever.
Cappadonna's solo debut, The Pillage, finally appeared in March 1998. Like any Wu project, the record featured RZA as the executive producer and cameos from a number of other Wu members, including Method Man, U-God, and Raekwon. As the sixth Wu solo project, the album was an instant success upon its release, debuting at number three on the charts.
Diabolic has come to be known due to his many collaborations and touring with Immortal Technique. The hidden track after "Dance With The Devil" on Immortal Technique's album Revolutionary Vol. 1, features a verse from Diabolic that gave him great recognition among many Immortal Technique fans. Ever since that verse, Diabolic has toured with Immortal Technique, even at the Rock The Bells hip hop festival, which boosted his recognition. His next collaboration was on Immortal Technique's classic sophomore album, Revolutionary Vol. 2, in the track called Peruvian Cocaine which became a fan favorite. Diabolic was also featured on Immortal Technique's third album The 3rd World in the track Payback. In April 2010, Diabolic's most anticipated debut album, Liar & A Thief, released on Viper Records.
