C.I.A. (abbreviation for Cru' in Action!) was a hip hop trio, which consisted of K-Dee, Sir Jinx and Ice Cube.[2] The group began playing at parties organized by Sir Jinx's cousin[2]Dr. Dre, a member of a popular local electro group called World Class Wreckin' Cru. At first they went by name Stereo Crew and released a single "She's a Skag" in 1986 on Epic Records.[3][4] After being dropped from the label for not having enough commercial success,[4] they signed with Kru Cut Records and started to use the name C.I.A.[3][4]. The group was credited for backing vocals on the WCWC song "Cabbage Patch" and the only C.I.A. release came in 1987 entitled "My Posse",[3] which was produced by Dr. Dre in a classic Roland TR-808 manner.

Ice Cube and Dr. Dre later became members of gangsta rap pioneer group N.W.A.[2]
