Coney is a commentator from Odenton, Maryland, known for being one of the most prominent commentators in the United States. He often commentates with TKbreezy and EE; the trio is known as "The Blast Zone," which was named after their bi-weekly talk show.

Prior to focusing on his commentary career, Coney was known for being one of the best Brawl King Dedede players in the world. He is notably the only Dedede player to take a game off of Mew2King's Meta Knight. Coney was ranked 7th on the final MD/VA Brawl Power Rankings and was formerly ranked 84th on the 2014 SSBBRank.

In other Smash games, Coney was a Project M Wario player, and was considered one of the best Wario players in the United States. He was notably the highest ranked player at the end of Anther's Project M 3.0.2 Netplay ladder. In Smash 4, Coney played Mario and Cloud and was formerly ranked 13th on the MD/VA Smash 4 Power Rankings. In Ultimate, Coney plays Banjo & Kazooie, and has wins over Mj, Little Z, and Remzi.
