As a theatre and Hip Hop artist He has toured across the US, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia, performing with artists such as Outkast, Philip Glass, Rahzel, Lester Bowie, KRS ONE, and Vernon Reid.

Israel is now back in New York, and is currently embarking on a journey to create a piece inspired by his late father Steve Ben Israel in collaboration with Leo Kay (Unfinished Business) and Yako 440. "Jazz has been one of my great inspirations and influences. My father was a Jazz drummer and I spent time in the Jazz clubs of New York as a kid. As I got older I found myself collaborating with Jazz musicians as an emcee and man did it push me in exploring improvisation."
