In past due 2008, the Suburban Noize label — house towards the stoner rap group Kottonmouth Kings — agreed upon the group and released the BC 13 EP.

The EP also included the one “Freaxxx,” which would reappear over the band’s 2009 record I’m Not really a Fan However the Kids ENJOY IT. The band backed the record by signing up for the annual Vans-sponsored Warped Tour that summer months. The next calendar year the group implemented up using its second full-length outing, WON’T Die. The critically divisive quartet remained occupied in 2011, self-releasing both mixtape DJ Sku Presents: BrokeNCYDE, Vol. 1 and their third formal recording, Guilty Pleasure.
