Although I have to acknowledge artists like Del, Souls of Mischief, Heiro, and even the original Black Eyed Peas in a post about west coast hip-hop…. Come on… everyone really thinks about N.W.A., Eazy-E, Dre, ICE-T, Cube, Snoop, Deathrow, etc. when the West Coast conversation comes up.
We all remember this…
But now the West Coast and LA in particular is making a comeback in a big way with a completely different vibe and sound – one that represents an interesting blend of skate, streetwear, beach parties, and a complete dismantling of any racial boundaries. It’s all about the party, the look, and more partying. All glocks down fools!
