Ed Lover left the group for reasons best known to him. He was the co-host of MTV's hip hop program "Yo! MTV Raps Today". It was on this show that Ed came up with his own dance routine known as the Ed Lover Dance. This dance was very popular in the 90's.

He teamed up with his co-host Dre to release an album " Back Up Off Me" in 1994. The album was poorly received. The previous year he had starred in the movie "Who's the Man," which was well received. Ed went on to become a radio personality on Radio Power.
