Rhettmatic, who co-founded The Visionaries in 1995, insists that the group never officially disbanded – they were simply busy with their own solo efforts.
"I can only speak for myself, but I can safely say that the crew has never, ever broken, despite the fact that some people might have thought it did," Rhettmatic says HipHopDX. "We are still brothers, but I think we are all just a step away from the commercial aspect and from each other so that we can all grow.
"We have been and still are being, as a group, doing shows together through the years, and some of us have done solo or in some joint projects, but we have never recorded new material as a group."
KeyKool adds, "We have grown as people and as artists, but our love for Hip-Hop and b-boys has not changed. We are having as much fun now as we did when we did [1998's] Galleries. We are only expressing what is going on with us right now through our new music.
"In 1997, the world was going to end at the turn of the millennium. Twenty years later, there are a lot more problems and trouble speaking. We are only here to try and learn, survive and evolve through it, and what we express in our music."
Much has changed in the past seven years. In 2016, 2Mex was treated for complications arising from diabetes, which resulted in the amputation of the leg. Meanw
