In 2016, he began to pivot into media as he and longtime collaborators Leonard “Graffiti” Johnson and Julius Hinton created the Life is Dope podcast, where the co-hosts invited various pop culture figures to bring honest and opinionated perspectives to current events, music, and other aspects of pop culture.

After spending years in collaborations, Ave Emi ventured beyond production and explored the world of songwriting. His first project was the exploratory debut EP, Faux Hearts. The EP earned him a second introduction into mainstream industry territory as a songwriter and earned him notable credits, like 2021’s  “In Yo City, Red Light, and Creep”, performed by Sig H.B. and produced by Zaytoven.
