December moves on to the end of the year. West up Fam!
We highlighting some LA Heavyweights this week, with some solid albums.
First up the Don Mega contributed to 2 albums this week. December 7th 1993 the powerful “Lethal Injection” by Ice Cube. Debuted at #5 on Billboard 200, this album captures the feeling of that Black Boot Stomping of the 90s. Criticism of the Police, of Karens, and Baby Gangsta’s .. Cube didn’t hold back on this one. Guest features include, the one and only George Clinton, K-Dee and Mack 10 on a remix of “What Can i do?”.
In fact the remixes to this album are so good, What Can I do, You Know How We do It, and Lil Ass gee have remixes dare i say, better than the regular versions. Production by Sir Jinx, QDII and George Clinton on Bop Gun, classic album.
Cube also contributed to the 2nd and last album by the supergroup Westside Connection, Cube, Mack 10, and WC. Titled “Terrorist Threats”, this album had more analysis of the world, music industry and the system than their first album. While not as popular as the first WSC, this one featured K-Mac, Butch Cassidy, Knoc-Turnal and Nate Dogg. Dope ass intro and commentary by Keith David throughout the album .. u might remember the actor Keith David from “They Live” and “Dead Presidents” and much more. “Gangsta Nation” and “Gangstas Make the World Go Round” were singles that made some moves from this album.
December 11th, “The Return of The Regulator” from Warren G. His fourth album, also not as popular as his others, but with soo many guest stars like Nate Dogg, Mista Grimm, Butch Cassidy, Soopafly, WC, George Clinton again.. CPO, El DeBarge, Mis Toi and Kokane. Singles “Lookin at You” and “Ghetto Village” though those definitely aren’t the best songs on the album. All music produced by Warren G, except “Lookin at You” by Dr Dre, and “Something to Bounce to” by Soopafly. Great production throughout.
Last up , its the homie X !! Xzibit dropped “Restless” dec 12 2000. More of that G Funk, also including Nate Dogg on “Been a Long Time”, though he also had East coast artists like Erick Sermon, and KRS One. But don’t sleep on the Westcoast cameos of Snoop, J-Ro, Defari, Kokane, WC, King Tee and Butch Cassidy. From the jump with the sound fx of lowrider this album slaps and was heard up and down the coast.
All this G-Funk classics in the mix this week.
