Bryan had his first international recognition when he and Puma settled a contract for using his single “All Out” for its Olympics commercial campaign in 2004.
He also had a song called “Willie Bounce” that appeared on several mixtapes in early 2006. It sampled the first few bars from “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor.
