The Popdust Files: Terror Squad

What It Was: A dance craze for the lazy man, in which Fat Joe, Remy Ma and the rest of their Bronx-based rap supergroup created a sensation by pulling up their pants, crossing their arms, and tilting slightly to the side. (An all-time great beat from producer-of-the-moment Scott Storch helped.) The song hit #1, and before long, Diddy and Bruce Willis were leaning back at the VMAs. What Happened Next: Follow-up single "Take Me Home" failed to achieve similar success, and the collective never released another album together. Joe and Remy went on to further solo success, as did the DJ of the group, DJ Khaled, and regular producers Cool & Dre, who found pop success helming the Game's "Hate It or Love It" and Christina Milian's "Say I." Where Are They Now?: Fat Joe lost a whole lot of weight and still drops a radio single every couple of months, DJ Khaled had a top five album with Kiss the Ring and one of the biggest R&B hits this summer with "Take It to the Head," and Remy Ma is still serving an eight-year prison sentence for assault and weapon-possession charges, up for parole in September 2014. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajmI1P3r1w4
