In 2000, B2K made a cameo appearance in Lil' Bow Wow's music video "Ghetto Girls" and opened on the "Scream Tour I" and the stage was set. B2K would become one of the most unforgettable and highly sought-after groups in the 2000's.B2K went on to break pop charts in 2001 with their single "Uh Huh."

Since then, the fans have craved more of what they served in the 2000's. More than a decade later, and after long-awaited reunions and biopics from figures of hip-hop and R&B's golden years, like Tupac, Guy, RBRM, and Xscape - the '90s and early 2000s are primed for reflection and a reunion tour from B2K is right on time."The Pandemonium continues!
