Da King & I were a male hip-hop/rap duo that consisted of MC Izzy Ice (born Isadore Francois) and DJ Majesty (born Roderick Wiggins). In 1988, they released the single “Soulman” on Scottfree Records under the name “Izzy Ice and DJ Majesty.” In 1992, the duo signed to Rowdy Records. In November of that same year, the duo released their debut single “Flip da Scrip.” The single didn’t appear to make the Billboard charts at all. On July 13, 1993, Da King & I released their only album “Contemporary Jeep Music.” It’s unknown how or if the album made the charts at all.
Even though the album received positive reviews, the album was a commercial failure due to the success & popularity of gangsta rap music. The follow-up singles “Tears” and “Krak da Weasel” were released, but didn’t make the charts at all.
In the mid-’90s, Roderick Wiggins wrote & produced music for artists such as Missy Elliott, Elusion, SWV, Rufus Blac and Before Dark. It’s unknown what he or MC Izzy Ice are up to today.
