Formed in the mid-'90s in Chicago, IL, Snypaz consists of members 2/4, Chilla, R-O-B, and Sic Wic. The quartet issued a tape in 1995, Ridin' High, and a year later released the six-track EP My Life as a Snypa (the latter selling 80,000 copies).
The quartet then relocated to Houston, TX, to record tracks with Do or Die (1998's Headz or Tailz), and through that association hooked up with Scarface (appearing on his 1998 album My Homies). Not much was heard from Snypaz until 2001, when they signed with Virgin Records and issued their major-label debut, Livin' in the Scope. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi
