the last decade, few artists have been able to crossover with both
commercial and underground audiences as seamlessly as Tha Liks have
done. Consistent fixtures year-after-year in the fickle hip hop world,
Tha Alkaholiks (Tash, E-Swift and J-Ro) are considered by many to be as
influential as any artist in hip hop history. Classic Alkaholiks
singles are still radio and mixtape staples.
Tha Alkaholiks have
released five critically acclaimed CDs: X.O. Experience, 21 & Over,
Coast II Coast, Likwidation and the recent Firewater CD, which have
featured a ‘who’s who’ of hip hop’s elite including Nas, Busta Rhymes,
Madlib, Xzibit, Q-Tip, Kurupt, The Neptunes and Ol’ Dirty Bastard to
name just a few.
