They frequently collaborate with fellow Chicago rappers Do or Die and Twista. They recently finished their album Planet Crucon, with their newest single, "Barn Fire".

Crucial Conflict, with the help of Do or Die, made the Chicago rap community more visible. With fast-paced raps, they were being compared to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, with whom they later ended up feuding. When the hit "Hay" was released, it improved the sales of the band's album The Final Tic".
