Biography

The duo's first appearance on record was their 1994 single named "Where My Homiez? (Come Around My Way)." This song failed to reach the Billboard Hot 100, but charted on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks and was an underground hit. Ill Al Skratch soon released a follow-up single named "I'll Take Her." This song featured R&B musician Brian McKnight and reached #62 on the Billboard Hot 100. Soon after releasing their first two singles, they released Creep Wit' Me to minor critical acclaim. It also managed to reach the Billboard 200 and spawned a third single, "Chill With That."

Ill Al Skratch collaborated with various artists including Michael Jackson, Gina Thompson and Shaquille O'Neal from 1995 to 1996. Their works also appeared on the soundtracks of movies including New Jersey Drive and Panther. In 1997, they released Keep It Movin', an album that received little commercial success and critical attention. They have not recorded any music since their 1997 album, but their songs have appeared on compilations including 1998's Hip Hop with R&B Flava.
