Bull has released songs on subjects such as digital rights, the music industry, and gaming. Bull’s actions have gained attention, specifically from the TalkTalk Group, who requested to team up with him against the Digital Economy Bill. Bull creates gaming raps, ranging with the subgenres nerdcore, political and comedy hip hop. He was briefly partnered with Machinima; however, due to a dispute he now uploads videos independently. He also recorded the theme song for popular YouTuber Nerd 3, as well as making an appearance with the British gaming group, The Yogscast, with the song “Kicky Kicky Flow” (a rap about Simon Lane and Lewis Brindley), and InTheLittleWood rap (a rap about Martyn Littlewood, another Yogscast member). Bull’s album Face was released in December 2011. The 12-track album includes ten brand new songs as well as the 2010 tracks “America” and “John Lennon”. The album focuses on topics such as medical recovery, war, love, Asperger’s syndrome, alcoholism, and pride.
