They recorded for Enjoy Records initially.
One of the MC’s was the son of Bobby Robinson.

Nepotism had nothing to do with their classic debut, 1980’s “Move With the Groove” .
A smooth, quick-paced party track, it was followed by “Do It, Do It” in 1981 and “Country Rock and Rap” in 1982.
That same year, they also appeared on Profile (then in its infancy) with another club track, “We’re at the Party“.
They had a style that was more suited for rocking parties then winning MC battles.
They were guests on the Pumpkin and the profile all-stars record “Here Comes That Beat”.
Also released the 1986 single on Danya Records “Get Busy”/”Stomp”.
They also submitted a record for the Profile Christmas compilation in 1987.
Greg G went on to become President of Entertainers Basketball Tournament that runs the Harlem Rucker Tournament that hosts the teams of the most current emcees and producers from today’s hip hop scene.
Greg is largely responsible for cable networks worldwide carrying Streetball tournaments.
