At Your Own Risk is the second album by West Coast hip hop artist King Tee. It is mainly produced by King Tee himself and DJ Pooh as was his debut, but it also contains production from Bilal Bashir, E-Swift, DJ Aladdin, Bronick Wrobleski and J.R. Coes. Also like King Tee's debut album, there are only two guest appearances. These appearances are provided by Breeze and Ice Cube on "Played Like a Piano." Ironically, Ron Wynn of Allmusic contrasts this album with those of Ice Cube's old group, N.W.A., saying that this album is "more reflective than combative or prophetic."[2] Allmusic gave At Your Own Risk a positive rating that does not reflect its commercial success. It only reached #175 on the Billboard 200 chart, and it only had one charting single, "Ruff Rhyme (Back Again)." It also contains the popular track, "Diss You," which samples "Miss You" by the Rolling Stones. Album cover and singles photography by Glen E. Friedman.

Four of the fourteen tracks on At Your Own Risk are included on King Tee's greatest hits album, Ruff Rhymes: Greatest Hits Collection.
