    After the groups name changed, the crew was later reduced to members Rob Swift, Roc Raida, Total Eclipse, and Mista Sinista (named after the Marvel Comics' Mister Sinister) before releasing their debut album X-Pressions. Sinista later left the group shortly after the release of Built from Scratch, and Rob Swift left the group for personal and artistic reasons in 2005.

    The X-Ecutioners have worked with many famous artists on their albums Built From Scratch and Revolutions and are highly respected in hip hop for their turntable skills, being infamous for the technique known as beat juggling. They have been known to do numerous collaborations, ranging from Kool G Rap to Cypress Hill, Mike Shinoda and co-released an album with Mike Patton called General Patton vs. The X-Ecutioners. The X-Ecutioners contributed to a remix of Run-DMC's "King of Rock" on the Harmonix game Amplitude, and the DJ group's song "Like This" was featured in the video game SSX 3.
