King Tee is classic West Coast. He has basically been around as long as NWA, Ice T and the pioneers of gangster rap. He has always had incredible production and nice lyrics. But he mostly has gone unknown. "Bass" & "Act A Fool" songs that were released 16 or so years ago, still sound tight today. Every one of his albums is supherb, and I have them all. A greatest hits collection was a natural for me, even having all of his lp's. I got them all on one cd. Something T has always been better then anybody else at, is his guest apperances. Check "Played Like A Piano" where him & Cube & Breeze destroy the mic. I think this is pretty much a accurate collection, some "greatest hits" seem to be more-so just a collection of songs that were thrown together. But then again, it would have been hard to mess this one up, impossible maybe.
I do have a few beefs with it, the song "Free Style Ghetto" is [somehow] missing. That is possibly my all time favorite posse cut, outside of "Symphony" with Xzibit, Tha Liks, Breeze & T making a disaster of one of the sickest tracks I've heard. The omission of this track really is upsetting, but such is life. But there are no tracks from "IV Life" on here, so maybe it was a label/clearance thing, I dunno...
T is an LA legend, even without getting the props he deserves. He put on Tha Liks who are an underground favorite, and helped launch the career of Xzibit too.
Sure there are a few tracks that are missing from this collection, but overall it still packs a major punch.

When it comes to underrated rappers in hip hop, King Tee's name is probably going to be mentioned somewhere in that mix. Being a fan of The Likwit Fam, King Tee is the only person from the group that I don't have. I've been hearing him rhyme on songs with Tha Alkaholiks, Xzibit, and with Dr. Dre, and knew he had mad skills. Unfortunately all of his albums are out of print, and are rare to find. I remember The Source did an article on him back in late '05, and was able to find this greatest hits album shortly after (and at a reasonable price).

There are a lot of hot gems on here. "Act A Fool" and "Payback's A Mutha" are classic old school tracks that I really liked. Ice Cube and MC Breeze would join in on the song "Played Like A Piano" while Mixmaster Spade would drop a dope verse on "Ya Better Bring A Gun". The song "Got It Bad Yall" would feature the debut of J-Ro and E-Swift from Tha Alkaholiks, and they would also appear on the song "Bus Dat A**".

The only problem that I have with this album is that it's sort of misleading in a way. This is King Tee's hits from his first three albums "Act A Fool" (1988), "At Your Own Risk"(1990), and "Tha Triflin' Album" (1993). I'm under the assumption that he left Capitol Records when he made his last two albums ("IV Life" (1995), and "Thy Kingdom Come" (1998)), which is probably why his latest material isn't on here, in this case songs like "Free Style Ghetto". Other than that I am glad that I have this album. People might have slept on this guy throughout his career, but I can asure you that he can keep up with other rappers from the late 80's and 90's. Find this or any album that King Tee has made, you won't be sorry.

Bass is probably a song you have heard,but forgot about.It was big in 89 I think. Played Like A Piano is my favorite cut on this great King Tee comeback.All the beat's are dope.Check it out Y'all.
