classic: tears - da king and i


Da King & I, whose members include MC Izzy Ice and DJ Majesty, were signed to Rowdy Records in 1992 and were often compared to another MC/DJ duo, Pete Rock & CL Smooth. The duo's first release was the five track maxi single entitled Flip Da Scrip, which was released on November 24, 1992. A few months later on July 13, 1993, Da King & I's first and only album, Contemporary Jeep Music was released, containing the singles, "Flip Da Scrip" and "Tears". Although the album did gain many positive reviews, the success and poularity of Gangsta rap led to the album becoming a commercial failure. The duo disbanded shortly after the release of the album.
