Cormega rose to fame in the mid-90s as an original member of The Firm crew, along with Nas, AZ and Foxy Brown, appearing on the song "Affirmative Action" from the Nas album It Was Written. After being booted from the group, Cormega signed a record deal with Def Jam Recordings, and recorded The Testament. The album was shelved, and Cormega was dropped from label, joining LandSpeed Records for his first official release. The Realness was re-released in 2007 with The True Meaning, Cormega's second album, from 2002, in a double special-edition package.
