The crew made regular appareances on pirate label and released a number of singles on white label vinyl, the group was signed to Dizzee Rascal's Dirtee Stank record label in 2005, after D Double E showed Dirtee Stank a CD of the groups work, and promptly released a mix CD on the label in 2006 entitled The Best of Newham Generals Vol. 1. Founding member Monkstar left the group, and music, in 2007 to follow religion.
