Even though they were newcomers to the industry, their first LP, 2002's B2K, became a instant hit. Their second (and final) regular studio album, Pandemonium!, was released in December of the same year, and garned the hit singles "Bump Bump Bump" and "Girlfriend." The group was featured regularly on the covers of teen magazines such as Right On and Word Up , and released a Christmas album in-between their regular two albums intitled Santa Hooked Me Up.
In addition to that, they were featured on the soundtrack album for MGM's film Barbershop and headlined The Scream Team Tour, their third, in 2003. Mario and Nick Cannon were also performers on The Scream Team Tour.
In January 2004, Chris Stokes announced that the group had broken up. Three of the members claimed financial mishandling by Stokes' management company, TUG (The Ultimate Group); the fourth member, Omarion, claimed the allegations were untrue.
In the midst of the breakup, Screen Gems's You Got Served, a film starring the members of the group and Omarion's alleged half-brother Marques Houston as breakdancers, went into general release on January 30, 2004, and, hitting #1 at the box office, earned more money than any other film that opened during a Super Bowl weekend. A number of the group's songs were featured on the film's soundtrack album.
