The twosome had several gigs around New York City while performing together, including Amateur Night at the world famous Apollo Theatre, where they won two weeks in a row. The duo was then picked up by Priority Records, but it wasn't long until Juelz was introduced through his cousin to fellow Harlem rapper Cam'ron mainly because of the believe that the time has come for Juelz's unique style to be heard. Despite the group inexistence, Juelz still remains good friend with Malik, while at the same time continued to believe in himself and his unique style. And so Juelz's cousin had him rhyme for Cam. "Cam didn't even know he was gonna meet me," Juelz recalled. "He was sleeping. So we wake him up and do the introductions and Cam tells me to spit for him and his reaction wasn't like it was hot. He was sleeping."
