King Tee released his third album titled ‘Tha Triflinâ€™ on this date in 1993.
Tha Triflin’ AlbumÂ is the third album byÂ West Coast hip hopÂ artistÂ King Tee. It was panned critically for being dated and containing a “lighter rap approach.” It contains two singles; “Got It Bad Y’all” featuringÂ Tha AlkaholiksÂ and “Black Togetha Again.” Neither of them charted, butÂ Tha Triflin’ AlbumÂ performed better on theÂ BillboardÂ 200Â chart than any other King Tee album.
This relative commercial success can be attributed to guest appearances by Tha Alkaholiks andÂ Ice CubeÂ as well asÂ hip hopÂ newcomers Nefretitti, Coke and Dr. Soose of Mad Kap and Deadly Threat. The production, handled by producers including Tha Alkaholiks,Â DJ PoohÂ andÂ Marley MarlÂ may have also attributed to the album’s reception. The success of this album is quite significant as it allowed King Tee’s protÃ©gÃ©s, Tha Alkaholiks, to gain a following. It also provided a foundation for King Tee’sÂ Likwit Crew.
The two singles on this album are the only songs from this album that are included on King Tee’s greatest hits compilation,Â Ruff Rhymes: Greatest Hits Collection.
