duo of AB (Artice Bartley) and Daddy Black (Carlos Spencer) from Jacksonville, Florida

, which reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100
. The song was produced by C.C. Lemonhead & Jay "Ski" McGowan, then known as The Bass Mechanics, who would later be known as the 69 Boyz
and the Quad City DJ's
. The success of the single propelled the album to peak at #71 on the Billboard Hot 200
. The similarly-named song Whoomp! (There It Is)
was by the group Tag Team
There was a female member, named K-nock, featured on Quad City Knock. Her vocals can be heard on the song, "K-nock in da House/We Got da Bass."
In 1995 they released their second album, One Mo' Gen, which contained the minor hit "Rodeo" that reached #77 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album itself peaked at #158 on the Billboard Hot 200. Their third album Tightwork 3000 followed in 2000, however it was a critical and commercial failure as it failed to chart and got poor reviews, including a one and a half star review from Allmusic.
In 2000 the group contributed to the soundtrack for the movie Bring It On, with the song "Cheer for Me".
The duo have also remixed songs for artists including Jordan Knight and Dru Hill.
