Groggs and Ritchie are believed to have met while working in a shoe store and went on to record their first music with Corey in a dentist office.
They poked fun at their humble start when they released their debut mixtape in 2015, calling it Live from the Dentist Office.
The trio released an EP titled Drive It Like It’s Stolen in 2017 and their first album, Injury Reserve, followed in 2019.
