Quik and AMG had worked together some years earlier when Quik (then known as DJ Quik) produced some records that AMG appeared on. When Quik was released from a prison sentence for parole violation, he decided to form the duo with long-time friend AMG. The group's name was chosen by AMG and Quik's manager Greedy Greg, and in their own words refers to their desire to "fix music" - "We're fixing music out here. We're interchanging our LA people. Right now. Where it was all dry before, we're giving them a breath of fresh air that's homegrown" - Quik. The group signed a singles deal with Interscope Records after their track "Can U Werk Wit Dat" received regular airplay on Los Angeles radio, the label going on to release it as a single. It was chosen as number 22 on Vibe's "44 Best Songs of 2007". The single became a favorite on LA radio stations and was featured on the HBO TV show Entourage. It also featured on several Billboard charts: #7 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart, #20 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart, #21 on the Rhythmic Top 40 chart, and #74 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, The group's debut album, Midnight Life, was supposed to be released in 2007, but never received a physical release; It was sold via the MySpace page of the Secret Music Group, with Quik claiming this was an unauthorized, unfinished version of the album, sold by a former business partner who had hacked Quik's MySpace to make the release look official.
The duo toured in 2007 as part of the Ball 4 Real Streetball Tour.
Their 2008 album Street Masterpiece received some positive reviews.
