History

One of their first breakthroughs was winning the ICA B-Town Rap Battle in 1986. In 1988 they released the single, "We're Notorious." Current Boston hip hop favorite Akrobatik said "Initially I would think of RSO Crew who were from here and making any type of noise. Locally, if I turned on the radio, those would be the guys that I would know who they were and follow their songs. I've definitely been checking them out from the beginning." [1]

In 1992 they released the EP Revenge of da Badd Boyz which created controversy with the single "One in the Chamba," which was inspired by two killings of youths by Boston Police. The Boston Police Patrolman's Association (BPPA) pressed charges against the group under a state law that prohibits inciting assaults against public figures. The Almighty RSO spent a short period being part of Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit, appearing on the album "Rollin' With The Flavor".

In 1996 they produced their first full length LP Doomsday: Forever RSO which included the singles "You Could Be My Boo" featuring Faith Evans, "The War's On" featuring Mobb Deep and "You'll Never Know.

Later Benzino and Twice Thou were in Made Men. Two years into the group Made Men split,With Benzino having Moderate Successes a solo artist. Twice Thou is currently in 4Peace with fellow Boston legend Edo G. He also operates the Antonio Ansaldi clothing store in Dorchester.
