They began getting recognition from their hit song titled "Buck & Naked" and later signing a deal with Relativity Records (after turning down Universal Records) back in 1998. Criminal Manne was a part of the group Project Playaz and ultimately got their world wide recognition and their first music video aired on "Rap City" (now 106 & Park) that premiered in 1998 titled "Buck With Me".
