Initially, Yukmouth was a founding member of The Luniz, which he formed as a duo with Numskull, a friend he met in high school.

In 1997, Yukmouth alongside Numskull, Chaka Khan, Charlie Wilson and others were nominated for the Grammy Award as the Best R&B Performance by a Group for their song “Stomp” (1997). In 1998, Yukmouth went solo with the double album “Thugged Out: The Albulation”, which is characterized by aggressive lyrics; the album reached 8th place on the Billboard R&B chart, and 40th place on the Billboard 200. This was followed by a second album – “Thug Lord: The New Testament” (2001) – which reached 71st place on the Billboard 200, but his third album “Block Shit” released the same year, was not that successful. Regardless, his net worth was rising steadily.
