Originally formed as a trio comprised of Collins, Pam, and a third MC, DJ Enoc, in Oakland, CA in 1991, The Coup have released six studio albums including Steal This Album which featured the paramount single "Me & Jesus in a '79 Granada Last Night." Two Coup tracks were also featured on the soundtrack to Superbad.
