It’s nearly Wednesday so you know what that means… the first edition of West Coast Wednesday. Back in Sacramento, one of the local hip hop radio stations plays an hour of classic West Coast hip hop every Wednesday. It is awesome to hear classic cuts from some from of music’s greatest artists.
To honor the greatest coast, each Wednesday I will feature one West Coast artist and show one of their classic music videos.
This week’s artist and song is Snoop Dogg‘s “Who Am I? (What’s My Name?)”
More After the Jump
The first single off Snoop’s 1993 solo debut Doggystyle was his hello to hip hop. And since this song debuted, Snoop hasn’t gone away. He has been releasing gangsta shit non-stop. He has even had time to do some TV. Starring in his own TV show, Snoop Dogg’s Fatherhood.
Snoop even showed helped Martha Stewart mix it up in the kitchen:
“You don’t love me, you just love my doggystyle.”
