During these early days in his career he teamed up with good friends Odene “Fiyaneer” Burke and Garfield “Rufftop Rockki” Thomas to form a group called Cornastone.
In 2001 when Bescenta made the decision to go solo in his career, when he met Computer Paul Henton a producer who saw in Bescenta the talent to succeed as a solo artiste, and wanted to work with him as such.
