The King is here! King T is definitely one of the foundations of West Coast rap as one of the first successful acts to break out of the West and get national respect. Payback’s A Mutha produced by DJ Pooh is one of the first, if not the first song to sample the James Brown classic “The Payback” which was sampled hundreds of times afterwards. In addition to being a solo artist, he also made his mark in the game by helping to bring in Tha Liks and Xzibit into the rap game. In this interview we discuss all of that, including his time with Dr. Dre and Aftermath and the word going around that he was one of Biggie’s influences.
