To The Boogie: Tha Liks discuss their love of 40s, groupies and Lilí Bow Wow's lyin' ass!


By C-Lee

With their fourth album imminently dropping, and their nationwide tour with Xzibit just coming to a close, Tha Liks are full force ahead with a new video, innumerable side projects and even some community service thrown in. Despite being the first group signed to Loud Records (a roster which includes Mobb Deep, Wu Tang and Big Pun) and their fellow Likwit crew member, Xzibit, currently blowing up like a Dr. Dre helium balloon, Tha Liks have managed to stay off many folksí radar for their 10 plus year career. With their current release, X.O., which includes production credits by the Neptunes and guest appearances by Defari, Xzibit and Kurupt, theyíre hoping to change all that.

Tha Liks have formally appended their previous incarnation as Tha Alkaholiks to appease various unnamed institutions that banned their videos or denied them performance space due to their controversial name. The left coastís biggest party crew, however, has by no means sobered up (although they could barely slurp down a double-shot with me, come on guys you know I ainít lyiní). More than just a frat boyís godsend though, Tha Liksí production (by E-Swift) has garnered a loyal following for their old-school breaks and obscure samples (is easy listening music and Lawrence Welk random enough for ya?). And Tash and J-Roís spirited juvenilia MCing has grown up just a tad without losing its gruff.

As I waited to knock heads with the madcap trio, their publicist described Tha Liksí tardiness as a result of a "rough night" and upon their arrival Tash hobbled in on crutches while E-Swift and J-Ro giggled like school boys at a fart convention.



I heard you had a rough night, what went down?

TASH: I donít know, I just woke up in the hospital.

Are you kidding?

TASH: I donít know for shit. (vague mumbling)

So, you have a new album, a new name, have Tha Liks arrived?

TASH: Boy, I think the Liks were here a long time ago but we were Tha Alkaholiks, now we the official Liks, I think its our turn now you know what Iím sayin? Weíve paid a lot of dues in this business, we put a lot of hard work in this album.

You talk a lot of shit about getting liquored up. I heard that DMC used to put down about 12 40s a day and Dana Plato could put down a gallon of vodka everyday, whatís your-

E-SWIFT: I think our claim to fame was early in the game. I was doing St. Ides commercials and the big St. Ides truck used to pull up in front of my house. And the dude would come out in a St. Ides uniform and just wheel on a dolly like 10 cases of 40 ounces to our house. We used to drink the majority of them and then sell the rest for like a dollar each.

J-RO: We used to drink em hot though. We had just moved in this house. We didnít have no refrigerator.

E-SWIFT: We was too worried about buying drum machines, you know what Iím saying? Fuck a refrigerator.

Speaking of warm alcohol, will you guys do a toast with me?

J-RO: Oh yeah! Weíll do a toast with you. You got some drinks?

(Pouring double shots of scotch into plastic cups).

E-SWIFT: That is NOT a shot, girl!

J-RO: Youíre spilling that shit! You already drunk, woman?! (To himself) Iím scared of her, man.

TASH: (wiping spilled scotch from his forearm) Iím gonna smell like a straight lush.

Itís all good.

TASH: (holds up cup.) We just takiní it to the neck, straight down?

J-RO: Hereís a toast to the boogie.

All: To the boogie!!

TASH: (Drinks.) Whaahh!! Hey! Thatís my old mans right there. Thatís like my uncle. He used to smell like that.

J-RO: Feel like a cowboy. I feel like Iím about to go have a duel with somebody.

Who would you most want to get bombed with?

J-RO: Stevie Wonder. Iíd like to get fucked up with Stevie Wonder.

E-SWIFT: Let me think. Yeah, itíd have to be a female. I wanna get faded with Beyonce. (laughs) I wanna get Beyonceís ass all drunk!

Get any hate mail from AA?

E-SWIFT: Shit itís niggas like us keeping them in business. (laughs)

J-RO: Yeah, I mean, on tha real though, we do stuff, (we) go talk to high school kids, college kids, all that.

You guys do community service and stuff right?

TASH: Yeah, hell yeah, we promote that all day long. Tell Ďem about the parade, J-Ro.

J-RO: Yeah we had a big parade this past Christmas out of South Central Los Angeles, and it was the first time ever in history that Mickey Mouse ever been to the ghetto, you know what I mean? We did a parade and everything. We had a bunch of snow for the kids, they ainít never seen snow in their whole lives.

TASH: Fake snow machine.

J-RO: Yeah so they had a snowman contest and all that. So stuff like that is always cool. You gotta give back. For all you up and coming rappers: You got to.

What would you call yourselves if you ever sobered up?

E-SWIFT: Iíll call myself an ambulance cuz Iíll be sick in the head.

Whatís the last thing you guys licked?

J-RO: Myself. I licked myself.

E-SWIFT: Ewww. That donít sound right.

Thereís a rumor that you guys are pissed at Xzibit.

E-SWIFT: Yeah, fuck him. Iíma kick his ass! Iíma kick his ass!

TASH: Shit up the little punk! (Beating the table, leaning into the tape recorder.) Man, youíre a punk!!!

E-SWIFT: Na man, thatís our boy man. That rumor is so far from the truth, man. We can just sit back and laugh. You know, we just got back from a nice little nationwide tour with Xzibit. We talk to Xzibit everyday, you know what Iím saying? We all family.

Whatís up with your personal lives?

TASH: We really donít have any. I mean, my time is all spent doing music.

E-SWIFT: Iím not married. Iím single. Iím single and available.

J-RO: Iím a single father with two boys, know what I mean?

TASH: Thatís tight.

So youíre all single, do you get hit by a lot of groupies?

J-RO: Hell yeah.

E-SWIFT: Yeah, hell yeah.

TASH: Thatís whatís tight.

E-SWIFT: I think the groupie factor done died down (though), I think itís more male groupies now. Itís more MCís wanna busí for you. And thatís a groupie to me.

TASH: I wouldnít call dudes that wanna bust for you groupies, though.

E-SWIFT: Man, certain ones. A lot of times you hear those stupid stories about how like Lilí Bow Wow busted for Snoop and shit and now look at him -- double platinum.

Whatís your opinion of Lilí Bow Wow?

TASH: I love Lilí Bow Wow.

E-SWIFT: Let me tell you a story about Lilí Bow Wow!!

TASH: Oh, here we go...itís deep.

E-SWIFT: Lilí Bow Wow--if it werenít for Tash, I donít even think Lilí Bow Wow would be here today.

TASH: Thatís right.

E-SWIFT: Thatís real.

Whatís up?

E-SWIFT: Thatís real.

TASH: Thatís real.

E-SWIFT: Because, on tha real, Lilí Bow Wow was on the Arsenio Hall Show with Snoop Dogg, the first time anyone in the world had ever saw Lilí Bow Bow bus. He was rapping, the song he was busin, the lyrics he was busin, was Tashís lyrics from a song called .... Frost bit?

TASH: No a song called uh Styles. What it is, itís like this, Lilí Bow Wowís from my hometown, really my neighborhood. Lilí Bow Wowís pops got his hands on (my) tape. And the story goes in my neighborhood that his pops loved the song so much that heíd just play it over and over. And so the story has it that Lilí Bow Wow remembered this song at age like 6 or 7 or something like that. Plus he had a Lilí flow and he could rap. So, he turned around and when Snoop Dogg had came to town. Lilí Bow Wow, I mean, his pops put him in front of Snoop and said "Rap for him." And thatís the only rap he knew, my stuff. So he busted out for Snoop and Snoop was like "Damn you can rap bro, I like this stuff." And then he started lying and shit, sayiní he wrote it and all that type of shit. Thatís how he got put on with Snoop at first.

So he fronted on you, man.

TASH: Yeah.

E-SWIFT: He fronted on olí Tash!! Papa (gonna) let him know soon as I see Lilí B. Oh I just saw Lilí Bow Wow I didnít even say nothing...

TASH: I love his stuff. I love his music, though. Itís tight.

E-SWIFT: Nah, itís all good.
