The trio released their first album, Holy Intellect, in 1990, spawning their only major radio hit, Rock Dis Funky Joint. This album was followed by Pure Poverty the following year. Their follow-up and most successful release to date has been 1993's Black Business, which drew criticism for alleged homophobia. Their fourth release was The New World Order.
