I strongly believe gangsta rap is over.
What i mean is, it will never cross over into mainstream music again.
theres no more mystery, curiosity or credibility in the genre anymore.
if we havent seen/heard it all, we think we have. i know i do.
so lets play a game:
If gangsta rap had a funeral. what would your playlist be?
If you'd like to RSVP for the funeral, post your playlist.
DJ88's take on the situation:
"Although not dead (a lot of current songs are basically doing the same thing)...here is an ode to the pioneers....
here's an a-list of the originators...mostly from Cali and one, gangsters from NY..."
"Top 12 - Ode to Gangster Rap"
6 in the Mornin' _ Ice T
Mack Attack - Too Short
Low Profile - Pay Dues
Do What I Feel - Dogg Pound
VSOP - Above The Law
jackin' for beats - Ice Cube
On The Run (REMIX) - Kool G Rap
Dopeman (REMIX) - N.W.A.
At Your Own Risk - King Tee
Is It Funky Enough - D.O.C.
187/Deep Cover - Dr. Dre & Snoop
One Time Gaffled 'Em Up - Comptons Most Wanted
by the way, gangsta rap had such a run it even influenced folk music...
or maybe it was crack that had the run... either way here is "Who's Got the Crack?"
