In 1995, Luniz released their debut album, "Operation Stackola" on Noo Trybe Records. The album peaked at #20 on the Billboard 200 and topped Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The song sampled Club Nouveau's "Why You Treat Me So Bad," Kool and the Gang's "Jungle Boogie," and Auto Two's "Top Billin'." It also featured vocals from Club Nouveau member, Michael Marshall. The success of "I Got 5 on It" helped make Luniz's debut album become their best-selling album.
In 1997, Luniz released their sophomore album, "Lunitik Muzik" which peaked at #34 on the Billboard 200 and #8 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart. The album sold roughly 500,000 copies and had appearances from rappers such as Redman, Too Short and E-40. The album failed to produce any hit singles at all.
Since then, Yukmouth has released seven solo albums and is the CEO of Smoke-a-Lot Records and Knumskull has released two solo albums. According to research, the duo are "somewhat beefing" & "not getting along right now" and according to Knumskull, if the duo comes together to do something, it'll be for the money.
