The one kid that would've been Aftermath that got away
The group was on Aftermath’s label and should have been great — but totally wasn’t.
After all the perceived hype the group received, the subsequent failure was a major low for everyone who was involved career’s. Dre decided to end the Firm project, which was his first release under Aftermath, and Nas went back to Columbia Records.
