Home Team

Home Team was a hip-hop/rap duo from the '90s that consisted of brothers Debonaire and Drugzie. Debonaire was a member of rap group Poison Clan.
In 1992, the duo released their debut album "Via Satellite from Saturn" on Luke Records. The album peaked at #50 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The first single "Pick it Up" peaked at #90 on the Billboard Hot 100, #8 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles chart, #36 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart and #41 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 19 weeks.
The follow-up single "Back to the Bronx" was released, but didn't make the Billboard charts at all. In 1993, they were feature on Luke's holiday single "Christmas At Luke's Sex Shop."
In 1994, Home Team released their last album "Malignant Graffiti" which flopped, failing to make the charts at all.

After that, it seems as if Home Team has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from them since.
