imageThe duo was formed in 1993 after they performed at the Lyricist Lounge. They released two singles “Who Dat?” in 1995 and “Move on You” in 1997. It’s unknown how each of them charted.

All City later caught the attention of rap group Onyx who helped them get a record deal with MCA Records.
imageIn June of 1998, they released the lead single from their upcoming debut album “The Actual” which peaked at #75 on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 on Billboard’s Hot Rap Singles chart and #48 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 18 weeks, making it the duo’s only hit song to date.
imageIn September of that same year, they released a follow-up single “The Hot Joint” which missed the Hot 100, but managed to peak at #93 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for only 3 weeks.
imageIn October of 1998, All City released their only album “Metropolis Gold” which peaked at #42 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart and #18 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart.

imageTwo more promotional singles from the album “Ded Right” and “Metrotheme” failed to make any impact on the charts.

After that, All City disbanded. These days, it appears that Greg Valentine continues to perform, but it’s unknown what J. Mega is up to these days.
