Following his debut, he was switched to Nippon Columbia, releasing his first album NUCLEAR SONIC PUNK under the OPTIMUM RECORDS label. After his contract with Nippon Columbia ended in 2003, he joined UP-FRONT in 2004 the following year and signed under the zetima label. As of March 2006, he now is credited by his real name.

On January 27, 2017, Nakajima announced a new single titled "Waga Ko ni Sasageru PUNK SONG". Along with that announcement, he also announced he was married and had a son recently born who the single was dedicated to.[1][2]
