The Bakersfield, CA-based Royal Ruckus got together in January of 1998 between Michael Walker (aka Flatline) and Jamey Bennett (aka Chunjay). With their Christian lyrical inspirations and all around silliness, the musical base of hip-hop is also experimented with a hybrid of punk, ska, techno, and whatever else they could throw in. Debuting in 1998 with the album Microphones, the self-release of Love Us or Leave Us followed in 1999, and eventually the EP of Not What You Expect in 2000. A "best-of" Royal Ruckus was also released that same year entitled Sweatin' to the Oldies.
