Staten Island vocalist Eamon appeared in late 2003, when his bold single "F**k It (I Don't Want You Back)" took urban radio by storm. With its spare melody and stripped-down production — not to mention its profanity-laced dismissal of a two-timing lover — the song stood out immediately and blew up request lines nationwide. Jive jumped on the fervor, fast-tracking a video for "F**k It" and slating a full-length LP for January 2004. When the debut dropped, it further showcased Eamon's strident lyricism and streetwise, doo wop-inspired vocals. Vintage rapper Milk Dee guested on two tracks. The follow-up, Love & Pain, was released near the end of 2006 and favored well abroad despite failing to make an impact in the U.S.
