He made his debut in 1994 on the Murder Was the Case soundtrack, and signed to Death Row Records but did not release any solo material while on the label. Davis was a member of the group LBC Crew around this time, and recorded the album Haven't You Heard in 1995 but it was never released officially by the label. He made appearances on albums by his labelmates, such as Dogg Food by Tha Dogg PoundTha Doggfather by Snoop Dogg and G-Funk Classics Vol. 1 by Nate Dogg, before leaving the label in 1997. In 1999, he became a member of Tha Eastsidaz with Snoop Dogg and Goldie Loc, with whom he released two albums.

Davis was an active gang member in his youth, and was an original member of the Insane Crips Gang in Long Beach. In 2005, Davis was sentenced to twelve years in prison for attempted murder, stemming from a 2003 incident in which he fired at rival gang members. He was imprisoned at California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo for nine years, before he was released in 2014. Upon his release, Davis released two mixtapes that were part of a Long Beach State of Mind series. In 2016, Deee released his debut solo studio album, The 3rd Coming. The same year, he formed the group Diirty OGz with fellow West Coast hip hop artists Kurupt, Tha Chill and Weazel Loc. They released their debut studio album, We Got Now and Next, in October 2016.
