Hussainpuri first appeared onto the mainstream bhangra scene through Mukhtar Sahota on a track titled 'Sohni Lagdi' who then moved onto a collaboration with Dr. Zeus on the album entitled Unda The Influence. This album was a success with both traditional and modern bhangra fans with such hits as Ah Ni Kuriye, Mele Vich Jatt and Tin Cheeja. He then did other notable tracks including Gabroo Shokeen, Yaar, Daru and a notable appearance on the world-wide smash-hit DesiRock by Swami.

An unofficial compilation entitled The Best of Lehmber Hussainpuri was also released in 2005 by Jatt Records. A tribute mixtape, in which Lehmber resang some of the great bhangra songs originally sung by Malkit Singh, Daler Mehndi, Sukwinder Shinda, etc. was released by VPearl Records entitled The Great Bhangra King. None of these were actual albums, rather just mixtapes by various companies to which Lehmber branched off.

Hussainpuri, in a relatively short time, has become one of the greatest Punjabi singers of recent times. He has many hit tracks on his own albums as well as on appearances on albums with Dr. Zeus, Aman Hayer, Simon Nandrha, RDB, DJ S-Bolina, DJ Sanj, Lil Sach and many others.

Hussainpuri is now signed to Serious Records based in the UK. His solo début album was released in October 2006 and contained tracks produced by Jeeti, Kam Frantic and Aman Hayer. In a recent attempt Envy Records, the former label which Hussainpuri was signed to, released a new album entitled 21 Century King of Bhangra featuring 3 new tracks and all of Hussainpuri's hit tracks from his Envy days. In response to this Hussainpuri released a video asking people not to buy the album and to only buy his albums which have been released by Serious Records. It has been stated that this is an attempt by Envy Records to get money back from Hussainpuri after he released Folk Attack early in India without their permission.
