"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."
