Punchline (born in Lower East Side, New York) and Wordsworth (born in Brooklyn, New York) originally gained popularity through their appearances at the Lyricist Lounge & All That! open mic events, which showcased countless artists from Rawkus, Blacksmith, LOUD!, Flipmode Squad, Native Tongues, Fat Beats, Spitkicker and other NYC based rap crews.
The two MC's debuted as ¬ËœPunch-N-Words' in 1998, making a number of notable guest appearances that year, including verses on A Tribe Called Quest’s The Love Movement album, Mos Def & Talib Kweli’s Black Star album, and Rawkus Records’ Lyricist Lounge, Volume One compilation. The duo released their self-titled debut Punch N’ Words EP in 2000, then continued their careers with guest appearances and solo projects.
Wordsworth released his solo debut album, Mirror Music, in 2004 and Punchline has a soon-to-be titled project set for release in 2012 as well as 12¬Â releases with Masta Ace and Strick from their eMC collaboration days.
