Young Zee landed a deal with Ruff Nation/Columbia Records as a solo artist as well as a deal for his group the Outsidaz. The New Jersey collaboration began touring with label mates "The Fugees" on their "Smoking Groove" tour. Young Zee earned national notoriety when he laced tracks on the Fugees' multi platinum album "The Score" with his guest appearance featured on the track "Cowboys". The deal with Ruff Nation/Columbia Records shortly ended after two years and once again under the leadership of Young Zee, the group signed another deal with Ruff Nation/Warner Bro. And released the EP, "Night Life" and "The Bricks" album. Both albums did respectfully well but Young Zee wanted to be solo and decided to part ways from Ruff Nation and the Outsidaz in the spring of 2001.
