Group from San Jose, CA, originally called ”N-EFFECT” but that changed into R.O.C (Renaissance Of Chaos) after they signed with L.A.- based label Scotti Bros Records. In 1992 they reached a local big hit single with ”Dedicated To My Girl” which sampled ”My Girl” from The Temptations and that was even remixed by Diamond D from D.I.T.C. crew. The following year the group dropped their last album to date entitled ”Bring The Chaos”, on Riot Records.
First single from the debut album by Ohio-born, L.A.-based rapper AMG, produced by DJ Quick and released on Select Records in 1991. The album didn’t cause much impact, but was followed by ”Ballin’ Out Of Control” in 1995, and ”Bitch Betta Have My Money 2001” in 2000. In 2007, AMG and DJ Quick formed the group ”The Fixxers” and were in the process of recording a new album titled ”Midnite Life”, but it was later scrapped after someone involved in the project tried to illegally sell bootlegs of the album over the internet, which caused its leak to the general public.

They started with Bee Pee Records with whom they released three singles, also picked up by B-Boy Records.
