After releasing projects separately, Skatterman (born Stacy Dewayne Landis) and Snug Brim (born Aaron R. Henderson) combined as a group. The duo released their first album, Worth A Million, in 2002 through Below Radar Records. On the cover they were listed as "Skatterman & Snug Brim," but the inside of the case displayed "Skatterman & Snug Brim AKA Yung Gunz." The "Yung Gunz" name was later dropped due to a conflict with another group of the same name, but different spelling. (Young Gunz)
After the release of their first album, the duo signed with the Kansas City-based label, Strange Music. They recorded the album, Urban Legendz which was released in 2004. The single from the album, "Block Party," charted #24 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Sales in October of the same year.
Word on tha Streets was released August 12, 2008. The follow up to their Urban Legendz album featured the songs: "I'm That Nigga", "Sukka Dukkas" and "Heartbreaker." Featured artists included Tech N9ne, Young Buck, Paul Wall and Rich The Factor.
On February 9, 2009, Tech N9ne's official website announced the duo's decision to leave the Strange Music label after fulfilling their commitment.

On February 23, Skatterman & Snug Brim issued a press release through their MySpace account confirming that they had left the Strange Music label after fulfilling their two-album commitment. The duo also revealed that they had started a new label, Bigg Shot Music & Films, with Skatterman acting as President / CEO and Snug Brim/] Plans for a new Skatterman & Snug Brim album were also included in this release, indicating that their third album Perseverance would be released through the label on September 1 via a two-album distribution deal with RYKO/Warner Bros. However, plans for the album were later dropped due to Snug Brim's decision to go back to school and work towards a 15 month certification in music marketing. Skatterman also moved forward with work on a solo mixtape titled The Cookbook, released on November 2, 2009. The mixtape will be followed by his studio album, Self Made scheduled for release on March 16, 2010.
