Today’s edition of West Coast Wednesday is double. I heard this song on my ipod when I was heading to school and thought it was fitting.
After Ice Cube left NWA he went solo and did quite well. Below are two videos for some of Cube’s biggest hits, “It Was A Good Day” and “Check Yo Self.” Unknown to me until now, it looks like the videos for tracks play together like a mini movie. Dope. Enjoy.
Although Cube is on and doing other things, like movies. Both of this songs are West Coast anthems.
Below Videos for Ice Cube’s “It Was A Good Day” and “Check Yo Self”:
Today’s West Coast Wednesday jam is by a rapper who fell too soon, 2Pac. Personally, I am not a big fan of Pac or LA. In fact I hate nearly everything Los Angeles, but for some strange reason I am attracted to this song.
2pac’s video for “To Live and Die in L.A.”:
In this second edition of West Coast Wednesday we go back to the late 80s to look at NWA‘s ground breaking, “Straight Outta Compton” of the album with the same name.
Here is the video for “Straight Outta Compton”:

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?)”
