Prior to joining the band, Baby G (Edara Johnson) was a professional dancer.
Meanwhile, Axis, Mike, and Dave were in a band called Wax Machine, which broke up in early 2008. Shinobi Ninja formed shortly afterward. Several members of the band met at a rehearsal and recording studio called Progressive Music in the Film Center Building in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. Duke Sims (born March 19), Jonny, and Mike worked at the studio, and Baby G took vocal classes there. In 2010, their original bass player Jonny left the band, and Alien Lex replaced him.
Of the six members of the band only Duke Sims and Alien Lex are originally from Brooklyn, both being born and raised in Bensonhurst. Lead singer Baby G is from Lawrence, Massachusetts. The twins Mike and Dave are from Piermont, New York. Axis Powers is originally from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
On January 28, 2010, the band released Shinobi Ninja Attacks!, a Nintendo-style video game album for iPhone, iPod, and iPad. They are the first independent band to release an app based on their likeness and music.
On October 6, 2010, lead singer Baby G was the featured coach on MTV Made, Season 11 episode 11.
In 2017 Spike Lee used their song "Genuine" in his new Netflix Series "She's Gotta Have It".
The band released their debut album, Rock Hood in April 2011. They followed this with the double album Escape from New York / Return From... in June 2014. In March 2017 they released their third album, Bless Up.
