Smidzik gained popularity on the internet through a series of solo releases on the website Soundcloud. His first release Forest was put out in late 2013 and featured more of a hip hop sound with Smidzik rapping on every song, in contrast to his later and more recognized R&B-stylized singing.

By 2014, Smidzik was gaining mass exposure with the help of Soundcloud and YouTube. The video for the song "Without You", from the mixtape Black Silk (released in February 2014), went viral, attaining more than a million views on video-sharing websites YouTube and WorldstarHipHop. Noisey declared the video an "instant classic" and published an article titled "Is Spooky Black Going to Take Over the R&B Game?", while Consequence of Sound and Complex magazine named "Without You" one of the best songs of 2014.

Smidzik is noted for releasing his material without promotion, and has frequently declined requests for interviews. In August 2014, he released the EP Leaving and a music video for its track "DJ Khaled Is My Father". By October, Smidzik was being managed by Canadian producer Doc McKinney. In December, he premiered a new song, "Worn", under the new name Corbin.

Also in 2014, Smidzik and fellow Minnesota musicians Allan Kingdom, Psymun, and Bobby Raps formed the hip hop/R&B group the Stand4rd. They released their self-titled debut album, The Stand4rd, in November 2014, produced entirely by the group and Doc McKinney. During November 2014, Corbin and the Stand4rd embarked on a US tour, which included a gig at SOB's in New York City where they were introduced by DJ Khaled. The group ended up selling out all seven of the shows on their debut headlining tour.

After the release of Couch Potato with Bobby Raps in 2015, Smidzik remained quiet and rarely did performances for 2 years. On January 16 2017, Smidzik unexpectedly uploaded a song, "destrooy" onto his Soundcloud. On June 25th, 2017, he announced on Twitter that himself, Shlohmo, and D33J would be going on a North American tour later in the year. Later, on August 24th, Smidzik announced his debut album, Mourn, due for release on September 5th of 2017 on Shlohmo's WeDidIt label.
