Following the dissolution of Low Profile, a late-'80s West Coast MC/DJ partnership between WC and DJ Aladdin, the rapper formed WC and the Maad Circle and released a pair of albums, Ain't a Damn Thang Changed (1991) and Curb Servin' (1995). The albums spawned a few popular singles, notably "Dress Code" (1991), "West Up!" (1995), and "One" (1996). In addition to the former Ice-T affiliate WC, the talented group also included DJ Crazy Toones, longtime Ice Cube producer Sir Jinx, and future chart-topping pop-rapper Coolio. Because the latter two were so occupied with their own respective solo careers, the Maad Circle dissolved, and WC decided to form a new, better group, Westside Connection, which also featured Ice Cube and Mack 10. That supergroup didn't last long either for similar reasons, though, and WC embarked on a promising solo career with the powerhouse Def Jam Records. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
