King Tee never really achieved commercial success throughout his career, despite the large amounts of respect he earned from his peers.. He’s mentioned as “influential” and “historically important” but never in his own right, whether it be along side DJ Pooh or E-Swift.. or the loose affiliation he had with Tha Liks, up to being Dr Dre’s right hand man. I may be wrong but I think he is also the founding father of the Likwit Crew, for those of you who DON’T KNOW includes people like Lootpack, Defari, Tha Liks.. not to mention the extended fam entourage….

He was featured on Dr Dre Presents Aftermath, although his input was marginal and his solo release Thy Kingdom Come wasn’t received too well.. I have no idea why! Here’s 3 tracks from the aforementioned King Tee solo, which was intended to re-launch the career of Tee. Either way, he never really cut it on his albums despite being involved in some legendary sessions, one of which I’ve included as a little bonus; “Freestyle Ghetto” gave Xzibit one of his primary opportunities to get on the mic, with Tha Liks alongside him.

I’ll let the tracks do the talking from here.. Enjoy
