The Bloods & Crips project was organized by Ronnie Phillips and rappers Redrum 781 and Tweedy Bird Loc. Actual gang members in the Crips from Compton, Watts and Long Beach, and Bloods from Inglewood and Los Angeles, auditioned for the group with the best ones chosen for the album. In 1993 the Bloods & Crips released their debut album entitled ''[[Bangin' on Wax]]'' through Warlock Records. One year later, the groups second and final studio album, ''[[Bangin' on Wax 2... The Saga Continues]]'' was released. After Bangin' on Wax 2, the Bloods & Crips parted ways, with the Bloods becoming the Damu Ridas and the Crips becoming the Nationwide Rip Ridaz.

Phillips]] in 1992. Actual gang members in the Crips from Compton, Watts and Long Beach, and Bloods from Inglewood and Los Angeles auditioned for the group with the best ones chosen for the album. The idea behind the albums was to get the gang members to bang (slang for fight) on wax (record) and not in the streets. Each record consisted of a "B" side and a "C" side, with the B side for the Bloods and the C side for the Crips. The song "Bangin' on Wax" was the only song where the Bloods & Crips rapped together in the original album. Most of the songs were written and recorded in the same studio session.
