Huang is a restaurateur turned writer whose memoir Fresh Off the Boat was turned into the hit ABC sitcom of the same name. In 2021 his directorial debut Boogie was released. The basketball movie featured Pop Smoke in a cameo filmed shortly before his death.

Earlier this year SZA shared a deluxe edition of her debut album Ctrl to mark five years since its release in 2017. In February she collected a Grammy alongside Doja Cat for their song "Kiss Me More." More recently she appeared alongside label mate Doechii on a remix of her song "Persuasive."
