Yaggfu Front is notable for being the first North Carolina based hip-hop group to be signed to a major record label. Their group name is an acronym which stands for You Are Gonna Get Fucked Up (if you) Front, they consist of members Spin 4th, D'Ranged & Damaged and Jingle Bel. Working as late night Djs at NCSU Radio Station WKNC, they landed a record deal with Mercury Records and released their first single,"Looking For A Contract",in 1993. In 1994,they released their album, "Action Packed Adventure", a conceptual album with jazzy influences. The album received 3.5 "Mics" out of 5 in the Hip-Hop magazine The Source (February 1994). After releasing a few singles, including the Diamond D featured "Slappin' Suckas Silly Remix" and a successful album, they bowed out of the game. Along with many other rappers who signed to major labels at the time, they parted company with their record label (Mercury Records). In 2002, around the time members of the group were working with the DemiGodz, they released "The Secret Tapes" a compilation of material recorded during their most successful stint in the game, 1992 to 1996.
Former member of the group 'Damaged' is rumored to feature on UK Hip Hop artist Ricta's debut album expected for release in late 2011.
