K-Dee, of the early west coast trio C.I.A with Ice Cube and Sir Jinx and a Lench Mob affiliate, featured on a bevy of classic West Coast albums from N.W.A (“Panic Zone”), Kausion ( “Supersperm”), Mack 10 (“H.O.E.K.”), Westside Connection (“Hoo Bangin (WSCG Style)”), Ice Cube (“Make It Ruff, Make It Smooth”), and Ant Banks (“Make Money”) to name a few.
His 1994 solo debut Ass, Gas or Cash (No One Rides for Free) is K-Dee at his finest with a smooth flow and cool delivery. Produced by Ice Cube, Madness 4 Real, and the 88 X Unit the project boasts classic funk and soul for K-Dee to spin his tales about L.A. life and the trials and tribulations of a pimp. Funk legends like P-Funk‘s Bootsy Collins and Morris Day of The Time both contributed amazing performances on K-Dee’s classic west coast project.
Happy Birthday, K-Dee!
