Spaces-in-Between was released on January 24, 2020. The 10-track album produced and co-composed by Paul Cargnello contains all original compositions and collaborations with Ezra Lewis and Chanda T. Holmes. Emile also announced that another hip hop album with some reggae influences and a live reggae album had been recorded in 2019.

In February 2020, Emile collaborated with Jamaican singer Etana on the remix of "Canopy", the third song from Spaces-in-Between. In April 2020, he released a music video for the album's first song "Keep on Fighting", which was also released as a single in French with the title "Solidarité".


In October 2019, Emile signed a distribution deal with Jamaican record label Tuff Gong, becoming the first artist from Quebec to do so. He released "Savanna", the first single from his upcoming third studio album Spaces-in-Between, shortly after. The song is named after his family's home town of Savanna-la-Mar, Jamaica, where Emile spent a part of his childhood. In December 2019, Emile released the album's second single "Moses", with its third single "Try a Likkle More" released the following month.


On December 29, 2016, Emile released his second studio album Phantom Pain.

As a result of the song's removal, Emile sued Top Dawg Entertainment, Interscope and Universal Music Group. In November 2016, he was awarded CA$8,600 plus five percent yearly interest after a Quebec court ruled that Top Dawg Entertainment had wrongfully pulled "Heaven Help Dem" off the internet. The court determined that Emile had suffered financially, while his reputation also suffered due to the insinuation that his use of Lamar's verse was a copyright violation. Emile declared that the verdict was a matter of vindication of what is right and not a monetary issue. Following further legal threats by Lamar's management, Emile penned an open letter to Lamar on the matter in March 2017.


On October 9, 2015, Emile released The Lover/Fighter Document LP, which incorporates elements of reggae, jazz, R&B and electro-pop. The album features collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Murs and Buckshot. Emile worked and toured with material from the album while attending McGill University as a philosophy and political science major. He released "Heaven Help Dem", featuring vocals by Kendrick Lamar, as the album's first single.

Just eight days after the song's release online in 2015, Lamar's record label Top Dawg Entertainment demanded the track be taken down on grounds of copyright infringement. Emile disputed this with YouTube and SoundCloud who had both withdrawn the song, clarifying to Billboard that his camp "paid Kendrick Lamar for a feature, and once we paid them, they basically stopped communicating with us altogether." The song was restored on the two platforms two months after its removal.


As a Jamaican Canadian and a member of the black community, Emile participates in Black History Month and other community events. In 2013, he engaged in a "Songs of Freedom" tour of Montreal-area schools with the motto "Music as a tool for communication and social change". The tour included 15 different venues.


In 2009, Emile released The Lover/Fighter Document EP through his label. In 2013, he made his theatrical debut in the Montreal production of the Broadway musical Ain't Misbehavin'. His performance achieved broad critical acclaim from both English and French media for his performance of André De Shields' original role and his notable interpretation of "The Viper's Drag".


In the aftermath of the death of 18-year-old Fredy Villanueva, who was shot and killed by Montreal Police in 2008, Emile recorded "Heaven Help Dem", which was featured on The Lover/Fighter Document EP and addressed urban violence and police brutality against visible minorities. A second version of the song featuring American rapper Kendrick Lamar was later included on Emile's debut studio album The Lover/Fighter Document LP and directly addressed Villanueva and other victims of police brutality in North America, including Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Amadou Diallo and Sean Bell. Lamar recorded his verse for the song in 2011 prior to signing a deal with Interscope Records.


At the age of 18, Emile was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive and highly malignant form of cancer. For the next two years, during which he underwent one year of chemotherapy treatments, followed by radiation, he employed his philosophy of "Mindpeacelove", creating music in the hospital and between his treatments. He finished treatment in December 2005 and completed his remission in December 2010.
