The group consist of lead singer Mark "Sisqó" Andrews (who went on to have a very successful solo career), Tamir "Nokio" Ruffin and, Larry "Jazz" Anthony, and James "Woody Rock" Green.

Signing to Island Records through Haqq Islam's University Records imprint, the group released two successful albums, Dru Hill and Enter the Dru, before separating for a period from late 1999 to 2002, during which time Sisqó and Woody released solo albums.

In 1995 Hiram Hicks president of Island Black Music saw the boys perform in a talent show and immediately wanted to fly them to New York to record a song called Tell Me for a movie Eddie starring Whoopi Goldberg.

The Reverend Jesse Jackson became personally involved, publicly stating that Poly Gram, based in the Netherlands, had "a pattern of race and sex exclusion." Jackson met with Poly Gram chairman Alain Levy and several other executives, who issued a public apology for Kronfield's statement, and replaced Kronfield as president with Motown Records' chairman Clarence Avant.

Dru Hill's third Top 20 pop hit came in the form of 1998's "How Deep Is Your Love" (Pop #3), a hip hop styled track which was included on the soundtrack to the Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker film Rush Hour.

Between November 1999 and November 2000, each member would release a solo album: Sisqó a pop album, Jazz a traditional R&B/soul album, Nokio a hip hop album, and Woody a gospel album.

All four members reunited with a fifth member named Scola and recorded their third album Dru World Order, which was released in November 2002.

At an October 1997 deposition hearing, Eric Kronfeld, president and chief operating officer of Island's parent company Poly Gram, was asked why he had hired such an individual.

His response was that if he were not to hire African-Americans with criminal records, then "there would be virtually no African-Americans employees in our society or in our industry." Kronfield's remarks set off a wave of controversy when word of them reached the media in November.

In 2002, by then part of the Def Soul record label, the group reunited and added fifth member Rufus "Scola" Waller to the lineup for their third album, Dru World Order, whose underperformance led to the group being dropped from Def Soul.

In 2009, the group signed to Kedar Entertainment Group and released their fourth album, In DRUpendence Day, the following year, with new member Tao taking the place of the again departed Woody.

The members of Dru Hill were natives of Baltimore, Maryland.

Mark Andrews and James Green met each other in middle school, and both later became acquaintances of Tamir Ruffin when all three began pursuing careers in the music industry.

Enter the Dru eventually sold two million copies by 1999.
