Low Profile was a duo of two aspiring rappers and a DJ from Los Angeles, California. The group consisted of WC and DJ Aladdin,[1] who went on to pursue a career in visual arts. The duo made its debut with Rhyme Syndicate Records, on a compilation album produced by Ice-T and Afrika Islam, before becoming a duo on Profile Records.

The group was a short-lived but influential West Coast hip hop duo. Together, they released one album, We're in This Together, before breaking up. They also appeared on the Rhyme Syndicate compilation Rhyme Syndicate Comin' Through.
