Biography[edit]

They released Love Crimes in 2000, which featured the single "No More". "No More" peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was their most significant hit.[1] It also reached #1 on the R&B chart.[1]

In 2002 the duo released "Someone to Love You", which peaked at #49 on the U.S. Billboard chart.[1]

Unplugged by David Chance was due to be released in winter 2007, which was remixed with new songs added with a follow up album called Unconditional Love which were only digital releases. Chance is now doing what he calls "inspirational soul music" (gospel) with two new groups signed to his label, called CMG Music LLC. Even though Ruff Endz is "no more", they agreed to release to the fans the album that was never heard called The Final Chapter, which was released on iTunes on August 9, 2010,[2] and released physically on November 23, 2010.[3]

Shortly after the release of The Final Chapter in early 2011 the group also released a mixtape entitled "The International Official Final Chapter Mixtape" with DJ Mad Dogg, which featured 6 songs not released on The Final Chapter and was hosted by both members of the duo.

As of 2013, David Chance has joined the upcoming reality series "Come Back Kings" with Ed Lover, Calvin Richardson, Horace Brown, Jeff Sanders, Jameio, Mr. Cheeks and Black Rob.[4][5][6]

On August 3, 2013 Ruff Endz released a new single "Wine You & Dine You" on their official website, it is the final song to feature David Chance. The single is set to be released to iTunes. A new album, entitled "Ruff Endz" is set to be released for some time in 2013. It was confirmed via their official site that Will "Star" Carter has joined Dante Jordan for the new album.[7]
