Knocturnal’s first taste of the rap game was on Dr. Dre’s multi-platinum album the Chronic 2001 where he was featured on four songs. He then wrote three songs for the Wash movie soundtrack, the Training Day soundtrack, and has since released several projects, while being featured on countless tracks.

What's one thing a good ghostwriter should know?
The most important thing a ghostwriter needs to know is how to put yourself in somebody else's shoes. You can't write for Dr. Dre the way you'd write for yourself. I used to write for Dre all the time, and his career and accomplishments were far from mine at the time. How am I gonna' write about selling 100 million records like Dr. Dre has? How am I gonna' write about Death Row & Interscope, NWA, etc. when I never experienced that? You have to put yourself in there position. Not to toot my own horn, but I know that's something I've always been good at. That's why Dre trusted me to write so many verses for him.
