By the end of the year T.R.A.Y. went on to record several online hits like "Eveyrday is Valentines" and "My Favorite Song". All were later released on his debut mixtape "T.R.A.Y. - So Midwest Hollywood" which went on to become a classic amongst fans.
Following the success of So Midwest Hollywood, T.R.A.Y. partnered with a independent label from his hometown called Prospect Entertainment to release what is now known as the "T.R.A.Y. - Home 4 the 1st Time mixtape. The collection was promoted on a small regional tour, and despite major critical acclaim the release managed to bring in 20,000 downloads with songs like "Had Enough", "Self", and "2Gether". After Home 4 the 1st Time, T.R.A.Y. recorded several features, and freestyles which further established his lyrical prowess among fellow top MCs.

The year 2013 marked a pivitol point in the artist's music and creative career in which T.R.A.Y. released 3 whole mixtapes back to back, "T.R.A.Y. - Book of Psalms" was his first all experimental album as it shocased the beginning of a new style of song writing. The release however went under the radar as many fans believed the artist may have reached his creative peak, and fell off to some extint. In response Travell took to the internet to release "T.R.A.Y. - Blue Ivy" a collection of freestyles recorded over instrumentals of the most popular hip hop songs at the time.
