Forming Supergroup The Firm
Date: October 1997
There have been a lot of hip-hop "supergroups" that have attempted to create albums in the past. But most of them have failed to get their collaborative projects off the ground. So even though The Firm's album, released through Dr. Dre's Aftermath label, turned out to be pretty lackluster, at least they saw their vision through and created an album before disbanding a short time later. In the end, the four members of the group—Nas, Foxy Brown, AZ, and Nature—were better off on their own.
