|Tha Liks chronology|
X.O. Experience is the fourth album by West Coast hip hop group Tha Alkaholiks, released under their nickname Tha Liks. Released four years after their third album Likwidation, X.O. Experience was not as acclaimed as their past work, and received moderate sales. The cover is an homage to that of the 1967 album Are You Experienced by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The album's lead single, The Neptunes-produced "Best U Can", became a minor hit in 2001, peaking at #64 on the R&B/Hip Hop charts.
The recording sessions for X.O. Experience were filled with much partying and fun. The group consumed a considerable amount of alcohol and cannabis, sometimes wasting studio time. When asked about the track "Bully Foot" featuring Busta Rhymes in an interview, Tash described the track's recording:
|“||We did that in New York. I remember that we had the studio session, and when Busta came in, we were blunted behind tracks, running late at the studio session. We were partying and shit, drinking and having fun, and I remember that time just got short as a mufucka real quick.
I don’t know if it’s because we were fucked up, I don’t know what the plan was. But I went in there to do my rap, and when I went in there, I hear, “It’s a wrap, we’ve got to go, time’s up!” So I had to come back the next day and do my shit, I remember Busta Rhymes got to the studio before us [laughs]. DJ Scratch did the beat, so he was up there doing his thing. We had a lot of fun during that session.
