    MC Freek — real name Oliver Georgiou — chosen because his favourite pirate station is Freek FM.
    MC Melo-D — real name Chris McKeckney — chosen because he liked the sound of it.
    MC Kenzie — real name James MacKenzie — chosen by splitting his surname. Kenzie was the runner up in series 3 of Celebrity Big Brother in January 2005.
    MC Plat'num — real name Marcel Sommerville — chosen because he liked it (originally was Rocky-B because he liked rocky movies). MC Plat'num was runner-up in Channel 4's TV show The Games.
    MC Flava — real name James Murray — chosen because he likes different flavours of music.
    DJ Tommy-B — real name Tom Beasley.

    All of the ten members grew up in Chingford, London and attended Highams Park school.
    The group made a demo at a studio for £200 called "Standard Flow". This demo was released on pirate radio stations under their own record label, Weighty Plates. After EastWest Records heard this song on the radio, they decided to give them a proper record deal. DJ Tommy-B chose to cover a song called "Crossroads", which was originally recorded by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony as "Tha Crossroads" in 1996. They used the chorus of the original song and wrote their own MC verses. They then released it as their first single once they left school at the ages of 16, where they also had a history of academic success. "Crossroads" went straight into the UK Singles Chart at number one and Blazin' Squad enjoyed moderate success in 2003 and 2004.

    The split occurred in 2005, shortly after Kenzie's appearance on Big Brother. MC Kenzie, MC Flava and MC Strider started their own band (preferring to be called Kenzie, James and Mus respectively), known as Friday Hill. The trio have released their debut single, "Baby Goodbye", in October 2005. Blazin' Squad now consists of Marcel (MC Plat'num), Stuart (MC Reepa), Sam (MC Spike-E) & Chris (MC Melo-D). They are currently writing and recording their new album. The first single release "All Night Long" from the album is scheduled for September 2006.
