The group was signed by Universal Music Group in 2004, before Dupri signed it through its So So Def label.
So So Def re-released an earlier song, known as Oh I Think They Like Me, shortened it to I Think They Life Me, with Dupri and Da Brat.
That remixed single was at the top of the Billboard R&B hit list and led to their first So So Def album, 2006 & # 39; s Top Of Our Game.

They also collaborated with the rock group Korn for a remix and mashup of Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It and Coming Undone in 2008, called Come Undone Wit It.

The group also had quite a few of the criminal problems, with Parlae being arrested in 2006 after a raid produced drugs, weapons and money.
Although the charges were eventually withdrawn, he was also suspected of the murder of Kenneth Kamp that year.
That specific murder case was eventually settled by a technical issue, while Pimpin & # 39; were arrested for a DUI in October 2007.
