Sqad Up

Sqad Up is an American hip-hop group from New Orleans, Louisiana. They were formed in 1999 and consisted of Lil Wayne, Dizzy, Gudda Gudda, Kidd Kidd, Supa Blanco, T-Streets and Young Yo. From 1999 to 2004, Sqad Up released various mixtapes; SQ1 to SQ6: The Remix. You can download those seven tapes for free from our downloads page.

In 2004, the group split up after a disagreement between the way their futures would be headed. They wanted to start their solo careers by working on their debut albums but the CEO of Cash Money Records, Birdman, did not feel that they were ready to start their solo careers just yet, so they parted ways. Wayne stayed with Birdman taking his advice and he clearly wasn’t wrong in doing so. Now in 2012, the members of Sqad Up are all on speaking terms but it does not seem like there will be a reunion project from them any time soon.

The reason the group worked so well together was because all of the members weren’t just music artists, they were all good friends too. You can view information on the members of Sqad Up below:
