Years Active: 2000-2002
Label: Atlantic Records/Lava Records
Best Known Song: "Shaniqua"
It's crazy to think that these guys were on MTV's Lyricist Lounge Show with this horrible song. It's crazy to think that they did tour dates with Outkast, Blink-182, Green Day and others. It's crazy that they got a positive review in Rolling Stone. It's crazy that what basically ended their rise was the tragedy that was 9/11...seriously. (A large party was planned in their honor for that night; it was rightly canceled. With the mood of the nation too dark for jokey hip-hop, they were quickly dropped from Atlantic Records.)
