Hometown: Baltimore

Current members: William Murchinson, Shae Bond, Anthony Hennigan, Brandon Hennigan, Shawn Thornton, Derrick Alston

Founded in: 2005

Style: hip-hop

Influenced by: Kanye West, Tupac, Nas

Notable: Tomorrow night, the group throws a CD release party for its self-titled debut album. It took them about three months to cut the 18 tracks, Bond said.

Quotable: "I love it," Bond said. "I think the public's going to like it too. I think it's like some of the best work I've done -- especially as far as collaborating with everybody else. It's kind of hard to have five guys on the same page."
