After a few appearances along with E-40, B-Legit & the Click, he released his debut album in 1994, entitled "XXXtra Manish". This release is still regarded as a Bay Area classic. Timeless Mobb Music material... Eventhough the album was a success, Little Bruce was dropped from Sick Wid It Records because of tensions within the roster.
