Highly respected and much in-demand with his peers, Thundercat has previously worked with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, N.E.R.D., Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Childish Gambino, Mac Miller, Anderson .Paak, Janelle Monáe, Travis Scott, BADBADNOTGOOD, Moses Sumney, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Wiz Khalifa, Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington, Little Simz, Louis Cole, and Shabazz Palaces in addition to his longtime writing partner Flying Lotus. He has performed on major late night TV programmes including the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
