Hardy began his music career in 2010, debuting his career under the rap name Profitz. At the age of 14, Profitz introduced himself to the music scene with his '#KNWME freestyle'.

He later went on to release his first mixtape 'Indecisive' in 2013 under a new rap name, Hardy.

Under the new name Hardy Caprio, he was inspired by Croydon artists such as Krept and Konan and Stormzy receiving a widespread success across the UK, which motivated him to pursue music more seriously.

Hardy rapped over Flukes instrumental "Wifey", a Rhythm & Grime song originally released and made famous by Tinie Tempah in 2006. In 2017, Hardy released "Unsigned" and "Super Soaker" alongside One Acen. "Unsigned" became a platinum single, garnered over 14 million views on YouTube, over 30 million streams, and reached number 2 on the UK Independent Chart. Source.
