North Carolina (peace to Virginia) based group, consisting of members Spin 4th, D'Ranged & Damage and Jingle Bel. Like most Hip-Hop acts of the time such as Common, Ill Biskits, The Roots, Digable Planets, Mad Skillz and countless others, they moved to New York to pursue a career in the Hip-Hop game. After releasing a a few singles, including the Diamond D featured "Slappin' Suckas Silly Remix" and a successful album (selling over 200,000 copies according to Soundscan), they bowed out of the game. Along with many other rappers who signed to major labels at the time, they parted company with their record label (Mercury Records). In 2002, around the time members of the group were working with the DemiGodz, they released "The Secret Tapes" a compilation of material recorded during their most successful stint in the game, 1992 to 1996.
Yaggfu Front stands for You Are Gonna Get Fucked Up (if you) Front. The humour driven Hip Hop -group has released two albums: 1994 release Action packed Adventure on Polygram and Secret Tapes. The first release from the group was "Looking For a Contract", which the group laments their trials at getting a record deal. In 1994 they released "Action Packed Adventure", one of the first conceptual albums of it's kind. 2001's "The Secret Tapes" had lost or cutting-room gems from "Action Packed Adventure" and some newer songs. The group members are D'ranged&Damaged, Spin 4th (currently in Demigodz) and Jingle Bel with DJ Assassin of Raleigh. Read more on Last.fm.
