With Ice Cube as its executive producer, Da Lench Mob released its debut album, Guerillas in tha Mist, in 1992. The video for the album's lead single, also titled "Guerillas in tha Mist", became popular in the fall of 1992.
In 1993, J-Dee was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for murder, and was dropped by the Lench Mob Records. J-Dee maintains his innocence. Instead of disbanding, the group brought in a South Central Los Angeles-based rapper called Maulkie (former member of the Ruthless Records group "Yomo & Maulkie") for its second album Planet of da Apes, released in 1994. The group broke up shortly afterwards.
