Giving love to 4 Westcoast Classics, and a Giant in Westcoast Hip Hop.
1st up Jan 20th, Oakland MC Saafir dropped his 2nd album “Trigonometry” as the alias Mr. No No, in 1998.
Down with Hobo Junction, Saafir got much bay history, MC, Producer, Actor .. he was in Menace II Society. Also apart of the Golden State Warriors, with Ras Kass and Xzibit. After an aborted flight in 1992 Saafir has sustained a back injury, and was confined to a wheel chair. Much love to that brother. Shock G is on 2 cuts on this album, and of course hard hitting cuts like “The Saucy Nomad”.
Next SCC, South Central Cartel.. released their debut album “South Central Madness” Jan 22, 1992.
SCC made some noise in the 90s, with members Havocc, Prodeje, Havikk, LV, DJ Kaos, DJ Gripp, and Young Prodeje. This was part of that west coast G’ music soundtrack.
Jan 23 1996. The DOC released his 2nd album. This is after his near fatal car crash that crushed his vocal cords. This album his voice is totally different, and he named the album “Helter Skelter”. This was originally was to be a Ice Cube and Dr Dre album, when DOC became frustrated for no payment for his lyric writing at Death Row, he left.. and took his lyrics with him. So DOC did the album himself! Got some stand out cuts in the mix.
Last up is a west coast classic. Tone Loc’s “Loced after Dark”. An underground album that dropped Jan 23rd 1989 and early pioneer. Released on Delicious Vinyl it has the known hits Wild Thing, Funky Cold Medina, and I Got it Goin On. Other standouts are Cheeba Cheeba, and Loc’ed after Dark.
