After its launch, the duo helped set up the Spaghetti Funk collective in 1994. Messa di Vespiri also made an appearance that yr, and was their mainstream discovery. Despite criticism through the underground hip-hop picture, the duo’s achievement continued with significantly pop-minded albums like Così Com’è, Nessuno, and Xché Si!, which presented a visitor appearance by old-school tale Kurtis Blow. The duo produced their performing debut using the 2001 film Senza Filtro. Pursuing Domani Smetto (2002) and Italiano Medio (2003), aswell as the 2004 live recording La Riconquista del Discussion board, the duo continued hiatus and focused on their single careers.
