Lil' Dap made his commercial debut on the song "I'm the Man" from the 1992 Gang Starr album Daily Operation. Both members appeared on Gang Starr's critically acclaimed 1994 album Hard to Earn, on the tracks "Speak Ya Clout" and "Words from the Nutcracker". In 1995, the group released their debut album, Livin' Proof. The album was very well received, mainly due to DJ Premier's advanced production work, which was described as "rhythmic masterpieces".
