Ain't Nothing But A Gangsta Party

Mack 10 and tha Dogg Pound - Nothin' But The Cavi Hit

Such a great summer jam. Kurupt kills it and the beat is so damn smooth. I missed out on a lot of late 90s West Coast because I wasn't really listening to hip-hop then. I owe my discovery of it entirely to this fantastic L.A. Leakers mixtape, hosted by Murs. "Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta" is a collection of classic West Coast gangsta rap. It should be the soundtrack to your summer. Murs talks about his personal experience with the songs on the interludes. It's interesting to hear his thoughts on, among other things, when he heard "Hit 'Em Up" and N.W.A. for the first time. I used the track listing instead of the cover because it speaks volumes; I mean, Cube, W.C. & Suga Free? Serious.
