The 54th Platoon was an American rap group who were the only artists signed to the short-lived FUBU Records. The group consisted of four members, JS, TL, Big Nut and Nu Black, all of whom came from New Orleans. 54th Platoon first released two independent albums in 1999 and 2000 entitled From Then... Till Now and Now... Till Forever before joining FUBU in 2001. The group appeared on FUBU's compilation album, The Good Life, collaborating with Nas and Nate Dogg on the track "Good Life". A year later they would release their debut album All or Nothin', made it three Billboard charts, including 21 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, but it was not a commercial success. In 2003 FUBU Records closed down and the group disbanded.
