Later discovered by popular hip hop group Onyx, the duo signed a record deal with the group's label Armee Records, distributed through MCA Records. The duo's first promo single, "Who Dat" b/w "Metrotheme", was released through Armee in 1995. That same year, the duo appeared on Onyx's sophomore album All We Got Iz Us, featured on the track "Getto Mentalitee". Valentine also made a solo appearance on the album, appearing on "Purse Snatchaz".
Three years later, the duo appeared again on Onyx's third group album Shut 'Em Down, being featured on the tracks "Fuck Dat" and "Overshine". All City's debut album, Metropolis Gold, was finally released in late 1998, featuring production from many notable producers, including DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Rockwilder, DJ Clark Kent, Onyx's Fredro Starr, Ron "Amen-Ra" Lawrence of The Hitmen, and Dave Atkinson. The album featured the singles "The Actual" b/w "Priceless, produced by Premier and Pete Rock, and "The Hot Joint". "The Actual" became a Billboard Hot 100 hit in 1998, becoming the group's only hit single.
The album received lukewarm reviews from critics, and failed to produce a significant amount of sales, failing to reach the Billboard 200 album chart. After the release of Metropolis Gold, the duo was not to be seen again, yet to make another single, album or guest appearance.
