Their debut album, 6th and Baronne, was released in 1993 on Cash Money. The album was not released outside of the local region, but it was very successful in the area and established Cash Money as a prominent label in the city. Today it is often considered a classic of New Orleans rap. Their next two albums, Straight Out Tha Gutta in 1994 and Mac Melph Calio in 1995, were similar to their debut. The rappers rapped mostly about guns, violence, and sex over New Orleans bounce beats provided by Mannie Fresh. The group released one more album on Cash Money in 1996, titled Uptown 4 Life. This was the group’s first album to have more than a local distribution, and it was their first and to date only album to chart nationally, peaking at #86 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The album featured the song “Drag ‘Em in the River”, which was a diss song directed at fellow New Orleans rapper Mystikal. The song is now one of the group’s most well known songs. According to Mannie Fresh in a 2008 interview, the song’s beat was the major reason Cash Money was able to sign rapper Juvenile, and in 2001 the same beat was reused for Juvenile’s single “Set It Off”. The group’s success was tempered however by the death of group member Yella Boy, who was murdered in 1997 in New Orleans.
