After leaving Pershing High School, the trio began to forge a path into the Detroit underground hip hop scene and quickly found themselves steadily gaining popularity, where they originally went by the name Ssenepod. Dopeness spelled backwards.

In 2000, J Dilla made the decision to leave the group to pursue his solo career, but still hung around helping his portage Young RJ with production.
