He later left Warner Bros. to sign with an independent label, Evolution Records, in 2002, with whom he released his second album, WHITEBOYS. His singles off the WhiteBoys album "Hold On & Got a Man" gained much radio play and video play, however due to the label's small budget the marketing and promotion was not done and the album was simply a Promotional Album in Ricky Jey's eyes.
In 2004 RJ created a production company and found the duo R&B female group We-R who later changed their name to Addictiv. On a successful path, Ricky Jey hooked up with DJ KAY SLAY to get his support and co-executive production on Addictiv's first single Little Game that featured Pitbull & Juno Award winner Mikey Dangerous. DJ KAY SLAY helped in also securing Papoose for Addictiv's second Promo single "Everything".
This was showing that Ricky Jey could also be a leader behind the scenes by having the right contacts as well as finding investment for the production company. He was placing all the right parts together as well as managing & moulding a new unknown artist on the scene in Canada.
In 2006 Ricky Jey was able to get Addictiv noticed in the Canadian music scene and on major music charts as BDS and MediaBase, enough so that Addictiv was nominated for a Canadian Radio Music award in 2007.
