Partners-N-Crime is a rap group from New Orleans, Louisiana, made up of Kangol Slim (born Walter Williams) and Misdemeanor (born Michael Patterson), friends raised in the 17th ward of New Orleans. Prime Time joined the group later on. The two earned a local buzz performing at various New Orleans talent shows, and eventually signed to Big Boy Records. A rivalry between Partners-N-Crime and Cash Money Records group U.N.L.V. led to further hostilities between Big Boy and Cash Money before the two groups made peace.
