In 2006, T.I. featured his P$C cohorts on the track "Bankhead", from his fourth album King. In 2008. Big Kuntry King featured P$C on the track "Still Kuntry", from his debut album, My Turn to Eat.
In 2008, member AK, also known as AK the Razorman, began to show he was disgruntled with T.I. and the label: "I'm an original P$C member. I met T.I. back in 1995; I was six-teen years old and he was four-teen. We put are heads together. He already had a deal in Brooklyn, that's why we made him the leader of the P$C; to lead us out of the streets and into the rap business and that is what happened. When his deal went bad with Arista in 2001 with the I'm Serious album, we didn't leave him nor abort our mission. We didn't leave T.I. behind; we didn't turn our backs on him. We continued to push hard for him. I and Big Kuntry came up with our deals and the In Da Streets Vol.1 album. You already know the history of how the P$C started. With me being an original member and there from day one, back in the trap days, I was the one who kept T.I.'s head from being shot off. I saved him in the music business as well. Arista did not want to drop his album until he came to them with another hit. That is when myself and Big Kuntry came through with "Heavy Chevy's" it was right on time. We dropped that on him (T.I.) when he thought it was over for him. We got our little check for that and did some shows and got some exposure, it was cool, and nothing was wrong back then; it was all one hundred. But now, a lot of people coming out of Grand Hustle haven't been promoted as his friends as we were. They weren't the backbone of Grand Hustle like us. We were the first people introduced as T.I.'s group as the click itself. Now you're seeing all these new faces and the old faces haven't even expanded nor done their own thing yet. We're still lingering and waiting around." In a 2011 interview with Inday, a Grand Hustle marketing promoter, he confirmed AK was no longer a part of the Grand Hustle label or P$C group.
