Mr. Green and Sam Lipman-Stern’s web series “Live from the Streets” has been picked up by Vice.[2] In 2015, Green compiled the songs from the series onto the album with the same name. He links up with The Roots rapper Malik B for their collaborative LP Unpredictable, and the Roots used his video "Live from the Bedroom" to celebrate their debut episode of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Falon.

In 2018, Green collaborated on the ep "FLYGOD is good... all the time" with Westside Gunn.[3] He also released over a dozen limited edition 7" vinyl records. In 2019, Mr. Green collaborated with Lee "Scratch" Perry on the EP "Super Ape Vs. 緑: Open Door", featuring Eric Andre, Sheek Louch, Daniel Son and HR. In 2020, a ninja project began, loosely based around the cut and paste movies of the 1980s, the first single featured Gucci Mane entitled "Gucci Ninja Assassins".[4] A second single was announced featuring Rick Ross, “Golden Ninja Empire (Yayo Ninjas)”. The third and fourth singles were "Gucci Ninja Assassins 2: in the Metal Garden of Fire" feat. Gucci Mane and Supreme Ninja Training Montage feat. DMX. On Green's 27th birthday on June 29, 2021, a fifth ninja single feat. Lil Wayne was also released.
