Though only active for four years (2000-2004), boy band B2K excited fans, especially young females, with their singing and most assuredly their dancing skills. One of the biggest selling boy bands of all time, the group only released three albums, one of which was the soundtrack to their 2004 dance flick You Got Served.

B2K's split was quite contentious and their reunion for a 2019 concert tour didn't last long. Members of the group are now focusing on individual projects.

Perhaps the most visible member is lead singer Omarion Grandberry. Omarion did experience commercial solo success with his debut album O back in 2005. He has participated in a number of tours, including a joint venture with Bow Wow. Omarion also appeared on the first two seasons of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood with ex-girlfriend Apryl Jones. Their highly publicized break-up centered around a child custody battle and Jones' relationship with B2K member Fizz.

The 2019 B2K U.S. tour was largely met with negative press stemming from behind the scenes drama between Omarion, Fizz and Jones. Omarion's "The Millennium Tour 2020" kicks off on February 29 in Louisville, Kentucky and without his fellow bandmates.

Fizz

Fizz, known back then as Lil Fizz, was the rapper of the group. The 34-year-old New Orleans native also tried his hand at a solo career after the group split and released his debut EP, Payday in 2007. He set his sights on becoming a music executive after the EP failed to perform well.

Fizz has been a main cast member of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood since its inaugural season. After the break-up with his ex, Moneice Slaughter, he began a relationship with Omarion's ex, Apryl Jones. He's also appeared on another docu-soap: Marriage Bootcamp: Hip-Hop Edition with yet another ex.

Born Jarell Houston, J-Book partnered with his first cousin, singer Marques Houston, to become Vice President and Producer of B2K's former manager's film production company, Footage Film. He's acted in a few movies, including Step Up 2 and has also been featured on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, primarily as a mediator between his old band mates.

Reportedly, J-Boog blames Fizz for members of the group not being invited on the final leg of the concert tour and considers Fizz's relationship with Jones a betrayal to Omarion.

Once considered the group's problem child, Raz accused his cousin and the group's manager, Chris Stokes, of sexually abusing him. While the other members denied having been abused by Stokes, Omarion later stated he does believe Raz's claims. Raz moved to China, where he has lived for almost 10 years. During the 2019 tour, old patterns emerged.

During the first few weeks of the tour, Raz let it be known that he felt unsafe after reports that Chris Stokes was possibly present. At their Nashville concert, he walked off stage and took to Instagram with complaints about the tour. In May 2019, B2k announced that Raz would be taking a break to focus on his mental health.
