King T Says That He Was Originally Supposed To Be On Kendrick Lamar’s Compton
2012’s good kid, m.A.A.d city major label debut from Kendrick Lamar featured more than one Compton legend. Dr. Dre, whose Aftermath Entertainment co-released the album, appeared on “Compton,” while MC Eiht provided chilly vocals to one of the LP’s two title tracks.
A new interview with DJ EFN’s Crazy Hood reveals that another CPT O.G., King T, was slated to appear.
“I was also supposed to be on Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Compton’ song, but I guess they took my part off of it,” said Tipsy, who was the first Compton rapper signed to a major label, care of his late 1980s deal with Capitol Records. King T would later sign with Dre in the earliest days at Aftermath. His Thy Kingdom Come album was delayed, before Tha Likwit Crew leader later left, and released the masters independently.
Tila added that he’s been working more with Dre. “I been [to Dr. Dre’s studio] and laid a couple of tunes. I don’t know if they’re coming out or not, but I actually did a song with him and 50 Cent on the song, just me, Dre and 50. I can’t remember what it was called, but 50’s hook or line that kept coming in so niggas could bust was ‘You can call it what you want it.'”
