King T is a west coast pioneering legend. In 1988, King T was joining MC Hammer and Too Short as one of the few west coast acts signed to known labels like Capitol Records and Jive Records.
During a career spanning four decades, Tila (as his friends refer to him) has released major-label albums like Act A Fool, At Your Own Risk, Tha Triflin’ Album, and IV Life, introduced the world to Tha Alkaholiks and his Likwit Crew, unleashed one of the rawest emcees we’ve ever known in Xzibit, and has appeared on several classic songs with a who’s who of West Coast royalty by collaborating with Dr. Dre, Xzibit, MC Ren, Ant Banks, DJ Muggs, Spice 1, Ice Cube, DJ Pooh, and Masta Ace to name a few.
Happy Birthday, King T!
