I like both WC & Mack-10, and I went back & forth as to which one I would put on there as I didnt want too much Westside Connection. As for the Game he is ok, nothing special at all, but thats what i mean by the west coast is pretty thin. D.O.C is good just didnt think he had enough actual discography for consideration. Eazy-E was a very good MC as far as delivery & had a unique voice. The fact that he would have been selling crack if it werent for MC Ren & Ice Cube, he has to be pushed down the list.
The difference between Ice-T & Tupac is Ice-T made every record in & about Los Angeles. Tupac didnt record anything west coast until All Eyez on Me. Spice-1 & Kurupt to me no way are better than MC Ren & Xzibit. I can understand wanting to boot The Game, Mack-10 & Eazy-E, they could not make the list & I would be fine with it. Ice Cube, Snoop, Ice-T, B-Real & MC Ren, I feel have to have a spot on here. Too Short has crazy longevity but i really only listened to him on Born to Mack & Life is...Too $hort. The west has better selection than say the south or the midwest, but wow how it is so obvious that New York is the dominant state in hip-hop
1.Tupac
2. Ice cube

I think the Game is over rated.He jackes so many rappers styles and rides on so many rappers backs.A countdown without Snoop isnt a count dount as he has held down West Coast for the last 20+ years.West Coast doesnt have a lot of rappers to pick from though

Oh aight so who do u credit for starting the West Coast Gangsta Shit? I am older and more seasoned then you that I can tell right away you prolly dnt even know who DJ Quik is,Mc Eiht,Above the Law.
I been rappin since I was 8 and you were prolly in diapers right? How you know bout da West Coast forreal you are from London
Lol I know who DJ Quik is. And what does age and location have got anything to do with hip hop knowledge? LOL I beat people double my age in music debates simply because I know my music theory.

I don't care about gangsta rap/G Funk. It is to blame for the crap on the radio.

The LA Underground scene which was buzzing with guys like Aceyalone was the shiz.
Your boy Eazy E used ghost writers lulz.
