MCs from the West never left but there’s been a resurgence of late from Southern Cali. It’s inspired this playlist which celebrates the contribution that LA-based MCs have made to hip-hop over the last 3 decades. You’ll hear music from Ice-T, NWA, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, DJ Quik, Lady of Rage, Warren G, 2Pac, The Game, The Pharcyde, King Tee, Tha Alkaholiks, Jurrasic 5, Dilated Peoples, DJ Quik, Pac Div, Murs, Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar.
Obviously, there are many other MCs who’ve helped build the LA legacy but this is a representation of many left coast eras. Just press play, sit back and listen to how the West was won. Related: Snoop Dogg – Reincarnated Official Film Trailer (Video)
