Over 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.
