King Tee Released 'Tha Triflin’ Album On This Date In 1993

King Tee released his third album titled ‘Tha Triflin’ on this date in 1993.

Tha Triflin’ Album is the third album by West Coast hip hop artist King Tee. It was panned critically for being dated and containing a “lighter rap approach.” It contains two singles; “Got It Bad Y’all” featuring Tha Alkaholiks and “Black Togetha Again.” Neither of them charted, but Tha Triflin’ Album performed better on the Billboard 200 chart than any other King Tee album.

This relative commercial success can be attributed to guest appearances by Tha Alkaholiks and Ice Cube as well as hip hop newcomers Nefretitti, Coke and Dr. Soose of Mad Kap and Deadly Threat. The production, handled by producers including Tha Alkaholiks, DJ Pooh and Marley Marl may have also attributed to the album’s reception. The success of this album is quite significant as it allowed King Tee’s protégés, Tha Alkaholiks, to gain a following. It also provided a foundation for King Tee’s 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, Ruff Rhymes: Greatest Hits Collection.
