South Central Cartel is a Los Angeles-based gangsta rap group. Some of their popular songs include "U Gotta Deal Wit Dis", "Pops Was a Rolla", "Ya Getz Clowned", "Gang Stories", "Servin 'Em Heat", "Knocc On Wood (Remix)", and "All Day Everyday".
As one of the original early-'90s West Coast gangsta collectives to follow N.W.A.'s lead, South Central Cartel first appeared with their debut album South Central Madness in early 1992, before releasing a succession of albums throughout the remainder of the decade. After their follow-up, 1994's N Gatz We Truss, generated a sizeable amount of attention in the gangsta rap underground, Def Jam signed the group, eventually resulting in their most commercially successful album, 1997's All Day Everyday.
During this same era, group leaders Havoc and Prodeje together released a string of albums on Pump Records as well, helping garner a small yet healthy cult audience. Despite their lack of mainstream success, the group does stand alongside fellow early-'90s West Coast colleagues such as N.W.A., Compton's Most Wanted, and Above the Law as gangsta rap pioneers. They never had very good chance to be successful so Mobb Deep stole S.C.C's group leaders names Havoc & Prodeje. Mobb Deep's members are Havoc & Prodigy. Everybody from S.C.C are members of Hoover Crips
