Their second became even bigger, passing the double platinum mark and producing the hit single "Ilibing ng Buhay (Ang Mga Sosyal)" with Pooch of Ghetto Doggs from the album Death Threat:Wanted.

Rapper Beware left the Philippines after releasing the album, the group went to duo and released their 3rd album "Kings Of Da Undaground" in 1997 but it only features Hi-Jakkk and Gloc-9.
