Haha that's a tough one- Death Row is all i really listen to consistently...I'd have to say Tha Dogg Pound,(and if you weren't looking for a duo, then Kurupt) watch Doggy Dogg world - Snoop and Kurupt DESTTROY that single!!!:) wbu? And as for producers, probably if not Dre, then it'd have to be Daz Dillinger - he produced a lot of tracks for Snoop and Warren G which Dre left uncredited :)
wbu? And yeaaah; give xzibit a listen - especially "X" and "Bitch Please" :)
DJ Pooh, eh? Well, he did produce it was a good day (my favourite Cube song) but i'd still opt for Sir Jinx, as he produced Cube's first four albums and Kool G Rap and DJ Polo's Live and Let Die, which is one of my favourite albums (as are Amerikkka's Most and Death Certificate I might add :D). Favourite death row artist? Hm...well I do like Nate Dogg (RIP) but he only really provided hooks so I'd go for Daz because he produces and emcees. Have you heard Blaqkout by DJ Quik and Kurupt?:)

Yeah forgot about Nate - my favoutite rappers of all time are Snoop then Dre then Tha Dogg Pound and Warren G, in that order, so it'c clear that Death Row does it for me ;) amd no I presume it's a single? I'll give it a listen :) and yeah spot on - It Was a Good Day was Cube's best work, but I also like Check Yo' Self and "Hello" :) you heard Santa Goes Straight to tha Ghetto by the Death Row Organization?

Was Warren G signed to Death Row? I thought he was with Def Jam but who knows :) Blaqkout is a collaborative album by Kurupt and DJ Quik so worth a listen just to support those artists :D Check yo self (and the remix) and hello are both great songs too :) no I haven't heard of that - good?:D

Nah Warren G went independent when Snoop signed in early '92, i just meant in general :) and yeah watch the video entitled "Santa Claus Goes straigh....." - it's from the album "Christmas on Death Row", and it's another old shchool gfunk attempt from the usuals (snoop dpg tray deee nate etc ):DD out of interest ...

Haha well I never thought I'd hear Snoop rapping about Santa :D his line: "Now on the first day of Christmas, my homeboy gave to me/A sack of the krazy glue and told me to smoke it up slowly" made me laugh out loud and the way he says it really fast to make it rhyme is just hilarious! ;) Oh damn wait a minute...on best west coast producers I didn't mention DJ Muggs! Blasphemy indeed :) Best east coast rapper...you may as well have asked me who's my favourite rapper since most of my favourites are east coast anyway (I LOVE Cube as an emcee though, and still really like DJ Quik, Daz and The DOC) but favourite? Hm tricky... well I think Rakim's the best rapper ever and I also love Chuck D, KRS One, Redman and the whole Wu-Tang Clan (in fact I saw them live at the Apollo Manchester yesterday and they were AMAZING) but probably my favourite east coast gangsta rapper is Kool G Rap or maybe Nas because their rhymes were just so vivid in their description of crime...who's yours?(also I appreciate from what you've told me you don't really listen to east coast anyway but still :D)

Haha yeah Snoop n' Nate make that track :) an yeeeaaahhh I've heard of most of those guys,(obviously Nas and Rakim Redman and the Wu-Tang Clan)-((by the way that's pretty cool...I tried to see snoop last week but i was away - gonna get tickets for T in the Park I think :))) an yeah Nas is supposed to be "the greatest of all time" isn't he, but I don't listen to that shiiit as you said - i know his (debut?) got universal acclaim :) ermm i don't suppose I could really say fairly - I had a Biggie album on my iPod Touch a while back (the one where he's by the car in a top hat - "life after death" is that one???) and it was full of funky beats, but his voice was quite irritating i found - i noticed you didn't put Biggie as a favourite either :) so clearly I certainly favoured the West-Coast by a Looooong way during the West/East Coasts' feud - with the likes of Snoop Dre and 2Pac dominating tha Row, who wouldn't ? ;) ;) ;) favouritr east coast album?

Yeah Nas has got a lot of acclaim for his lyrics and skill as an mc but although I really like Nas I wouldn't say he is the greatest. Yeah Illmatic (his debut) is a fantastic album; great beats, lyrics and no filler so I'd recommend that definitely as an introduction. Yep, you are talking about life after death by the way :) I purposefully didn't put Biggie on my favourites list because I think he's a little overrated personally (still good by all means though). I bought his greatest hits as an introduction and liked some of the songs (Juicy, Hypnotize etc) but wasn't completely wowed over however :) I'm more neutral in the east/west feud as I like both coast's music during that time :) favourite east coast album...I'm going to say (in terms of east/west feud albums) Mobb Deep "The Infamous" because it's so gangsta but in a definitely New York way...I couldn't really say my one overrall favourite east coast album though :D you don't like Kanye or Jay-Z (oh I'm sorry Jay Z as it is now) or anyone like that don't you?:)

Ok well you seem to know what you're talkig about :) so yeah ill give them a listen - like you said, biggie seems a bit like Pac (overrated cause he's dead):S rip :/ and i'll defo try "The Infamous" :) nah i dont like Kanye or Jay Z, even though Jay Z (although associated with modern shite) was actually a hardcore gangsta once ;) I was only alive during the later era of the main East/West feud - i was born four days after Pac's death when Snoop had launched a rivalry with his friend's supposed killers, and when Suge had decided against a second instalment of the would-be "Death Row East" :S did you live through the whole of the rise of gangsta rap / g-funk? I wish i was born in 1992 to see Snoop's rise to fame :/

It's horrible to say unfortunately but it's true; BIG and Pac are so revered because they're dead :( RIP all the same. Definitley check out the Infamous, it's great but it's such a shame Mobb Deep sold out to G Unit :( I haven't upset a g unit/50 cent fan have I?:) Yeah, it's funny how Jay Z changed but then again I suppose you could sort of apply the same thing to Snoop how he's now all about reggae and stuff :) Hm...well let's put it like this...I was born 1 year and 14 days after biggie died (I know that's a tenuous link but hey :D) so no, I didn't see the rise of Death Row and g-funk yeah but I'd prefer to be like Snoop's age now y'know so I would have grown up with hip hop and witnessed it's evolution...I mean if you were born in 1992 I don't think you'd remember a great deal about Snoop's rise and certainly not listened to his music at that age ;)

Northern rappers? Erm....no :) oh wait actually at the Wu-Tang show they were supported by a Manchester mc called Mic Righteous and he was surprisingly good (he was no Ice Cube but still decent) but other than that no you? Haha one-year olds rapping gin and juice :) Yeah, I know what you mean like these artists know what they're talking about because they've experienced all this bad stuff and then got away so to speak (escaped perhaps is a better word):) I watched Menace 2 Society yesterday - seen it? It's got MC Eiht in it and it was really good :D

Yep. Like how I thought Biggie was the greatest when I first got into hip hop. Now however I realise that isn't the case. Still good though!

Haha sorry but the answer is still no :D you? Did she go to the London show on Friday? Menace to Society is a film and definitely worth a watch although it may be difficult to find (what am I saying, I watched it on youtube!):) yep worth watching. Do you like the Wu-Tang Clan?:)

Ha well you're friend's got a good taste in music then ;) I'd give Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) a go as it's their debut album and a great starting point. Then, I'd go to either Liquid Swords (GZA/Genius) or Only Built For Cuban Linx (Raekwon) to listen to the classics first...well that's what I did, ask your friend, she'll probably give a similar plan :) If you do watch Menace to Society let me know what you thought :D and yeah bang-on about less mainstream artists (I mean, I only discovered Daz Dillinger about two weeks ago!):)
