Rest has gained a wider awareness through initial projects and attempts, mainly thanks to rap freestyle battles. The first act under You Never was the Premier breakthrough album, which was completely produced by DJ Fatte. Premiere was a huge success, and as a result, Rest became one of the leading rap performers over night.
Three years later, in October 2013 Premiere was added to the record Shards. Rest worked with DJ Fatto again, and DJ Fatto delivered all the beats to the album. Ripes begins exactly where Premiere ended and can be considered as a set of current Rest’s thoughts and opinions
