The band went on tour with Michael Jackson and appeared in other artist's music videos, including Jackson's song "Jam," D.M.C.'s song "Down with the King," and TLC's song "Hat 2 da Back."

Their follow up albums were a success, but as it is with so many bands, hit songs aren't always going to keep them together. In 1996 they released their final album "Young, Rich & Dangerous" before separating to pursue solo careers.
