Profile (courtesy of Wikipedia):

“21 & Over is the debut album by West Coast hip hop group, Tha Alkaholiks. It is highly praised, and has been described as “the quintessential West Coast party album.” It has ten tracks, timed at only about 35 minutes, but it contains three singles, “Make Room,” “Likwit” and “Mary Jane.” None of these singles reached The Billboard Hot 100, but they all did well on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart. The only single that contains vocals from anybody other than Tash and J-Ro is “Likwit,” which features King Tee. King Tee is responsible for founding Tha Alkaholiks, and the track’s title is a reference to the Likwit Crew that he created. Lootpack and Threat are the only other guest vocalists on this album, but production is provided by Tha Alkaholiks, King Tee, Lootpack and Derick “D. Pimp” Williams.”
