Gotcha and I did undastand what you are saying but the rappers don't have it right either,right? Cuz even Cube throws the DUB is he on the Westside? or is he just Westcoast,thanks Dogg
Yeah Ice Cube is from Compton, which is on the West Coast, near Long Beach. Compton doesn't have an East or West Side unlike LB, but yeah he's from Compton with Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren, DJ Yella etc.. There is usually an East Side in loadsa cities across the USA, but when referring to Eastside in West Coast Gangsta Rap, it usually means Long Beach. There are a group of rappers in the 'LBC Crew', who are all from the same street on 21at Street, Eastside, Long Beach: including Snoop; Nate; Warren G; And Lil' 1/2 Dead :) and no problem :)

Kurupt and 2Pac not from the West Coast? Just because they were born somewhere else? What about that quote from 2Pac at the end of "School" on Masta Killa's No Said Date?
"I love Wu-Tang... I feel like they represent the East Coast like WE REPRESENT THE WEST COAST.
So I guess 2Pac considered himself a West Coast rapper even though he's from Baltimore...

Ahh nice I love Tha Dogg Pound's early stuff and collaborations with Snoop n Dre: Kurupt in particular. No Snoop Doggy Dogg on that list?! He's by FAR my favourite - i think he was the best rapper of the '90s with his smooth flow and hyptnotising laconic drawl. He was just soo cool, ya know?! As for Eazy-E which others have spoken about: firstly i think he was a bit of a d.head with Dre and Death Row. Secondly, his style of rapping was (pardon the pun) easy - he just shouted down the mic with no flow or style whatsoever!

There was a West vs East Coast Feud in the early-mid 1990s: some, like Snoop and other friends of 2Pac, still feel very bitter of East Coast rappers

I agree with Dogg on this,Doggystyle is a classic and can never be beat also he still rocks he is just different. I would take it as far as I like his song with Willie Nelson,Pussycat Dolls,when he sings and even his new alter Ego Reggae Snoop Lion,He still got it! My Opinion.If you say Snoop is Overated then who do you think is the best?
