In the late 80s, Dimant became friends with a female rapper who at that time dated rapper Everlast, then Everlast and Dimant decided to start a group, and with the addition of Everlast’s high school friend Danny Boy, House of Pain was formed. The group’s 1992 self-titled debut album went multi-platinum and is best known for the DJ Muggs produced hit single "Jump Around" and the DJ Lethal produced "Shamrocks and Shenanigans". A second album was released in 1994.

On House of Pain’s final tour, Limp Bizkit, an up-and-coming band from Jacksonville, Florida was hired as a supporting act. DJ Lethal and the band became friends, and later, Limp Bizkit hired him to do some work on their recordings, eventually asking him if he wanted to join them. DJ Lethal accepted the offer, wanting his contributions to the band recordings to be more original than typical DJs in bands at the time. On Limp Bizkit albums, he is credited for doing "sound development" and the band became one of the most popular rap/rock groups during the late 90s and early 2000s, selling over 33 million records worldwide.
