Otis and Shugg are half brothers Otis Cooper and "Shugg" David from Oakland, California. They grew up in the same neighbourhood as Raphael Saadiq who got to hear one of their demo tapes. At first Shugg did some road management for Tony! Toni! Toné! and lock after their merchandise sales before the brothers were signed to Saadiq's label Pookie Records through Interscope.

The year was 1995 and they released their first single "Keep It On The Real" and a follow up "Journey" in 1996.

Problems arose when Interscope changed distribution and Pookie split with Interscope leaving the album "We Can Do Whatever" unissued.
