Back in 1992, emcee Billy Danze and rapper-producer Lil' Fame came together as the Brooklyn duo M.O.P., short for "Mash Out Posse," and have maintained a consistent underground following. But they might be remembered for some mainstream success with the songs "Ante Up" and "Cold as Ice," both of which featured on their 2000 album, "Warriorz." At different points in its career, the group has been a part of Jay-Z and Damon Dash's Roc-A-Fella Records and 50 Cent's G-Unit Records, but ultimately cut ties with both labels. M.O.P. continues to make and release music independently and talks about releasing an album later this year.

M.O.P. will perform Wednesday, June 17, at The California Brew Haus, 402 West Ridge Road. 7 p.m. $25-$30.;
