If you’ve been a fan of hip-hop at any time over the last 25 years, you know the significance of Compton to the culture. Here’s a video of a guided tour of South Central LA that is conducted by Game’s stepfather. It includes stops at Eazy-E’s home (where the first NWA album was recorded), Game’s childhood home, the Slauson Swap Meet, the infamous spot where the beating of Rodney King was filmed and more. Here’s the video. Stories galore. Related: How the West Was Won (Playlist of old and new West Coast Hip-Hop)
