For the third album Likwidation a collaboration with Ol ' Dirty Bastard Hip Hop Drunkies, which became especially in Europe, one of the milestones in the hip-hop culture emerged.

For the 2001 released album, X.O. Experience, they changed their name to Tha Liks, because they were threatened because of the offensive name with boycotts.
