Peter Gunz became a popular name for the first time after the song Deja Vu – Uptown Baby climbed to number nine on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number six on the Canadian single charts. He sang the song together with Lord Tariq. It was the main single of their debut album Make It Reign.
The song, which was produced by KNS and released in December 1997, rocked the United States. According to records, over one million copies were sold, which led the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to certify the song as platinum in 1998. In 1999, when fans of Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz were expecting another hit from the duo’s follow-up album, it turned out that they had split for reasons that can best be described as history, as we are here for Peter Gunz.
As a musician, Gunz is a multi-instrumentalist. He’s also a manager, and his first child, Cory Gunz, is also a rapper currently signed to Young Money Entertainment. After Peter became famous with Lord Tariq, he was nominated for a Grammy Award. He became very famous, toured the world, and worked with famous artists like Ice Cube, Mariah Carey, and Fat Joe.
