During this time, Mochief was offered deals with Sony, Atlantic and Roc-a-Fella, but put his career on pause to raise his children in the early 2000s and ultimately owning his own Fiber Internet provider business.
In 2021, Mochief made his return to the art industry with a new clothing label as the CEO of Parle Black and new entertainment label as the CEO of MCM Entertainment Group. In this role, Mochief helps independent artists to establish themselves, providing the expertise of a major label while allowing artists to maintain their independent, creative endeavors.
