Queens raised Sweet Tee came on the hip-hop scene in 1986 and dropped the noteworthy single, “It’s My Beat” on Profile Records with the legendary DJ Jazzy Joyce. She got a deal with MCA Records and the Hurby Azor produced It’s Tee Time came out in 1989. “I Got Da Feelin’,” “On The Smooth Tip,” “Why Did It Have To Be Me” and “It’s Like That Y’all” charted in the USA and England before Tee would go under the radar for a long spell. Although Tee did not have the kind of status afforded to MC Lyte or the future platinum successes of someone like Da Brat, It’s Tee Time is considered one of the most important rap albums by a woman. Last year Tee reappeared to discuss her new music and a mixtape done by Red Alert called Best of Both Worlds Sweet Tee featuring Jay-Z.
