History[edit]

Da King & I, the members of which include MC Izzy Ice and DJ Majesty, signed with Rowdy Records in 1992 and were often compared to another MC-DJ duo, Pete Rock & CL Smooth. The duo first released their debut single, "Flip da Scrip" on November 24, 1992. A few months later, on July 13, 1993, Da King & I's first and only album, Contemporary Jeep Music was released, containing the singles "Flip Da Scrip" and "Tears." Although the album did gain many positive reviews, the success and popularity of Gangsta rap caused the album to become a commercial failure. The duo disbanded shortly after the release of the album.

Since then, group member Roderick "Majesty" Wiggins has launched a career as an R&B producer in the late 90's. He has made contributions to a few albums, such as:

SWV - Release Some Tension ("Release Some Tension") RCA Records, 1998
Rufus Blaq - Credentials ("Come Alive Y'all") Perspective Records, 1998
Elusion - Think About It ("Good and Plenty") RCA Records, 1998
Before Dark - Daydreamin' ("Push N Shove") RCA Records, 2000
