Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch also had their own video game, titled Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch: Make My Video, which despite the band's success, was a huge flop.
Wahlberg later collaborated with the late reggae/ragga singer Prince Ital Joe on the album Life in the Streets.
The record, produced by brother Donnie, hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100, later becoming certified as a platinum single.
The second single, "Wildside", peaked at number five on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales chart and at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Marky Mark opened for the New Kids on the Block during their last tour.
Commenting in 2006 on his past crimes, Wahlberg stated: "I did a lot of things that I regret, and I have certainly paid for my mistakes." He said the right thing to do would be to try to find the blinded man and make amends, and admitted he has not done so, but added that he was no longer burdened by guilt: "You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn't until I really started doing good and doing right by other people, as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. I feel good when I wake up in the morning." As soon as I began that life of crime, there was always a voice in my head telling me I was going to end up in jail. My sister went to prison so many times I lost count.
Finally I was there, locked up with the kind of guys I'd always wanted to be like.
The project combined rap vocals, electronic-infused ragga, and "European dancefloor" music, delivering the singles "Happy People", German number one hit "United", "Life in the Streets", and "Babylon", with Frank Peterson and Alex Christensen as producers.
Wahlberg and Ital Joe released another album in 1995 for Ultraphonic Records.
He is co-owner of the Wahlburgers chain and co-stars in the reality TV series about it.
Titled The Remix Album, it featured remixes from the duo's previous album, Life in the Streets, as well as the Mark's solo track, "No Mercy".
Magazine and television promotions would sometimes feature Wahlberg exclusively or accompanied by model Kate Moss.
Court documents state that in 1992, Wahlberg "without provocation or cause, viciously and repeatedly kicked" a man named Robert D.
Crehan in the face and jaw while another man named Derek Mc Call held Crehan down on the ground.
