5 years in the street, until Cutting Records signed the group to a record deal and it was on from there.

We Come to Rock” was their first 12″ from Cutting Records in 1984.

The B side features DJ Whiz Kid and is usually considered the better version of track.

The follow called “Live it Up” in 1985 was more hip hop than its electro predecessor.

Through trials and tribulations the group recorded 2 singles and split ways.

EL’Don, one of the members continues to hit the street performing at showcases and appearing on several mixtapes and DVD’s with the desire to get back in the industry and hit them again and again.

Another member Nesto Banks is his long time partner and the two together are showing the rap world of today that they still can reign supreme in this business of music and show the younger rappers how they can produce hits and still move the crowds.


As of 2007, El Don and Chedda have reunited and are making tracks appearing on Smack dvd and New york mixtapes.

They are currently working on a comeback overseas album with a label based in France.
