C.I.A. (abbreviation for Cru' in Action!) was a hip hop trio, which consisted of K-Dee, Sir Jinx and Ice Cube. The group began playing at parties organized by Sir Jinx's cousinDr. 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. After being dropped from the label for not having enough commercial success, they signed with Kru Cut Records and started to use the name C.I.A.. 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", which was produced by Dr. Dre in a classic Roland TR-808 manner.
