The group even made an appearance on the successful talk show "Hey! Hey! Hey! Music Champ", hosted by comedic legends Downtown. However, the reunion would be short lived, as the group split once again in 2003. One of the members of the group, Zeebra, continued onward on his solo career, DJ Oasis also embarked on a solo career, only short lived and much less commercially successful, and K Dub Shine enjoys a more indies-based career. The group are considered to be true pioneers in the Japanese hip hop scene for their outspoken views, forever changing the face of Japanese hip hop. « hide
