Formed in 2002, the group consisted of Psychopathic Records-associated rappers Joseph Bruce (Mr. Diamond), Joseph Utsler (Mr. Club), Esham (Mr. Spade), and Lavel (Mr. Heart). The songs of Soopa Villainz center thematically on nefarious actions conducted by comic book supervillains. The group disbanded in 2005 after Smith and Lavel left the label.
