The same year, they toured along with Mighty Crowns "FIST & FIRE" tour across Japan and showed their existence to the Japanese Reggae fans. In 1999 when Mighty Crown won the World Sound Clash, TRUTHFUL who was the main MC / selector had the burning passion to becoming a DEE JAY, joined FIRE BALL a long with YOYO-C who just returned from London. In all, FIRE BALL had 5 members. Challenging their individual skills and yet uniting it on stage and also help from Mighty Crowns Mix tapes, their acknowledgement and skills excelled well above average. Once Mighty Crowns label, "LIFE STYLE" was established in the year 2000,FIRE BALLS existence was firm after appearing in the compilation CD "LIFE STYLE RECORDS COMPILATION VOL.1".
In 2002

Not only themselves but with this album, they showed the whole music scene the existence and made a large impact for Dancehall reggae. As they challenge and tested themselves at lives, their growth was an eye catcher. You can see that realistically in their 2nd album "BOOK OF LIFE"

FIRE BALL was the host and was the main event of this festival. At the end of that year FIRE BALL a long with their original band "JUNGLE ROOTS" went on their first solo tour "FIRE CAMP TOUR".
As the Japanese reggae scene and the media featured them huge in 2004
they were an important character. The title of the third album FIRE BALL released was "FIST & FIRE". The PASSION and ANGER, LOVE; the BURNING type of feeling (emotion) = FIRE. The STRONG PRIDE and a BREAK through towards the FUTURE = FIST, was what featured and characterized FIRE BALL itself. In it, their enthusiastic surge towards the SCENE showed their strong will. Not only at the "YOKOHAMA REGGAE FESTIVAL 2004" that gathered twenty thousand people in August, FIRE BALL, with the theme "FIST & FIRE" showed themselves at Reggae festivals around Japan this year. They delivered their burning desire to many of the fans.
