B.G. Knocc Out & Dresta OutBurst Records

B.G. Knocc Out is the younger brother of rapper Dresta, and were born and raised in Compton, California. At an early age both of the brothers became Crips gang members.

Eazy-E eventually discovered the brothers and signed them to Ruthless Records. Together they recorded songs on Eazy-E’s 1993 EP It’s On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa, which was a response to Dr. Dre’s and Snoop Dogg’s diss records towards Eazy-E on The Chronic.

In 1995, B.G. Knocc Out & Dresta released their debut album Real Brothas on OutBurst Records, which remains their only album to date. This is the original black & white press photo used for their promotions and autographs.

Hi-C & Tony A. First Los Angeles Appearance

When the debut album Hi-C Skanless hit the streets in 1991 it was became in instant hit, and scored a solid position the Billboard Music Charts. With the sudden success Hi-C and Tony A. began filming music videos and going on tour.

Here is the one of the original fliers from their first Los Angeles rap performance at Harbor College back in 1992. The parental advisory label is about ten times larger than it appears on the CD or cassette. I guess they really wanted to point out that Hi-C lyrics might offend people.
