It features Chaos Kid (later Snafu), M&M (later Eminem), Maximum (later Proof), Vitamin C, Caucasian Pimp, MC Howard Funk, Delirious D, V-Top, DJ Buttafingaz, DJ Stezo, and producer Manix. Through 1989 to 1995, the group released numerous EPs and demos. Songs by the group are so rare that there are rare versions/tracks that are not in their album discography, meaning it could be partially lost. Still in the Bassmint (1992) and Soul Intent (1995) are considered official. All of their albums are not released commercially.

This is best known for featuring Eminem, who went on to have international success, making millions of copies for The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show.

In 1995, They joined an obscure label called Mashin' Duck Records for their EP Soul Intent. After they disbanded on the same year, Eminem made Infinite (1996) and The Slim Shady EP (1997)
