    it sucks because due to the radio stations dictating what gets played no west coast music gets played consistently except for snoop and game. radio stationsoutside of la will play their 5-6 usual west coast songs with half of them being new stuff from game and snoop and the other songs being california love andanother random 2pac song.

    Its all because of the Ny dudes got that attitude that they are the God's gift to the world. Its just the nY state of mind that everything runs throughtNY. If it aint NY hip hop it aint "real" hip hop. Yes, hip hop was started in NY. Basketball was started in Springfield. You dont see Springfielddudes coming to the Rucker like "that aint real Basketball B". Every other music genre started in the south but you dont see the south tryin to claimmusic as their own.

    its because at the end of the day the west's biggest contribution to hip-hop was gangsta rap aka dudes stepping inside a booth just cursing and telling warstories about their hood

    [​IMG] educated at being fiends see odb

    cali put out a bunch of classics from 92-96 but imo thats where it stopped. most people out here like to live in the past and stay only listening to alot ofthose mid 90's classic albums rather then trying to focus on listening to new local artists.

    like i said before most people even out here in cali don't know about anyone other then snoop and game and 2pac even though he was from ny, bmore, andoakland lol

    i want to see new artists come out and put out quality music and its people who got talent their just not getting their chance to showcase it.

    If it wasnt for the West running stuff that whole aggressive style in the mid 90s in NY wouldnt have never popped off if it wasnt for WestCoast gangsta rap.Yall NY dudes would still be rapping about

    N.W.A and West Coast gangsta rap crafted NY grimey music and Southern trap music
