I missed out on the height of the beef, I was only 9 when Biggie died.

But growing up next to Memphis and loving 3-6 I preferred the grimier rap in general which meant East Cost & Dirty South all the way. Wu Tang, Biggie, DMX, 3-6, the whole Atlanta Trap scene in the early 00s.

I still love me some classic Gfunk though, the Chronic was a great album.

I'd liked all 3. 90's rap was good and using those soul samples.

Biggie had good lyrics, Pac had them and Krayzie Bone got lyrics although I liked Bizzy's flow. i could never understand wtf he was saying half the time.

While I did like the Miami Bass Scene, I have to give it to the West Coast.  NWA, Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Too $hort, The D.O.C., Ice T, and a few others made up the bulk of my go to rap in my formative years.  Don't get me wrong though, I did like KRS One and Boogie Down Productions too but the bulk of what I listened to was West Coast in my teenage years.

I wasn't in Detroit but my burb was well overrun at the time due to us being neutral territory between both the bloods and crips (and the other gangs associated with them).  Resulted in some interesting times growing up and knowing a few kids who got shot or were shooters and went to jail.  My side was death metal so I fit in real easy.    I tell my kids now things are boring.  How many fellow students have pointed a gun at you or have decided to show up at your workplace and jump you for turning in one of their homies...especially because you're whitey?

I'm a little more towards the 80"s so Beastie Boys are my #1 but other than them I went all over. Dre, Kwali, Mos Def, Snoop, Outkast, Eminem, Acyelone, Def Squad, Cypress Hill, Method Man and of course Digital Underground.

IceCube, NWA, and the rest of the west coast were Gangsta Rap.  They all rolled on the east coast wannabes -- that's not to say that Biggie didn't legitimately have a place, it was just more of a club vibe, which worked.   West coast guys used rap to protest whereas east coast used it to brag about being flashy.

Pac was on a level all by himself though.  If he hadn't gotten shot down we wouldn't be suffering today with people thinking Jay-Z and Kanye are "rappers."  He'd have embarrassed them right out of the game.


When it comes to 90's rap, west side is best side.

West Coast is best coast.  Sad what Jerry Heller did to NWA but it made Cube and Dre even bigger.  I'll never forget when I first heard this one.

This is mostly true, especially today. But 90's rap actually had some talented individuals, especially the west coast.

END GAME

First off, fuck your bitch and the clique you claim
Westside when we ride, come equipped with game
You claim to be a player, but I fucked your wife
We bust on Bad Boys, niggas fucked for life
Plus Puffy trying to see me, weak hearts I rip
Biggie Smalls and Junior M.A.F.I.A. some mark-ass bitches
We keep on coming while we running for your jewels
Steady gunning, keep on busting at them fools
You know the rules
Lil' Caesar go ask your homie how I'll leave you
Cut your young ass up, leave you in pieces, now be deceased
Little Kim, don't fuck around with real G's
Quick to snatch your ugly ass off the streets
So fuck peace! I'll let them niggas know it's on for life
Don't let the Westside ride the night haha
Bad Boy murdered on wax and killed
Fuck with me and get your caps peeled
You know

See, grab your Glocks when you see 2Pac
Call the cops when you see 2Pac, oh
Who shot me, but your punks didn't finish
Now you about to feel the wrath of a menace
Nigga, I hit 'em up

I could never get into the East Coast shit. The West Coast lyrics seemed to be a step above in terms of quality. Not necessarily as catchy all the time but you can put in most any 2Pac album and listen to it cover to cover and I swear it gets deeper every time.

Eazy E was also a genius, although not as "deep" as 2Pac. He's another that I appreciate his skill more every time I listen.

Quoted:
Like many suburban white kids growing up in the late 80s/early 90s, gangsta rap was our musical outlet for rebellion. Unless you were a fucking grunge Nirvana fan, in which case you sucked anyway.
Of vital importance to our white privilege, was choosing a side in the 90s gangsta rap wars between the East and West Coast.

I grew up on the East Coast, so I had a natural geographical affinity to the East Coast rappers like Wu-Tang Clan, Beastie Boys, and Biggie. But my friends and I also were into our fair share of West Coast rap acts like Eazy-E (a personal favorite, to this day), NWA, Dr Dre/Snoop and Ice Cube. 2-Pac was (and still is, for me) too Black Militant for my taste, but many of my young white brethren were able to look past his Black Nationalist views and enjoy his music.

Also, the Cleveland-based Bone Thugs & Harmony introduced us to a new and violent taste of the midwest ghetto subculture.

So, choose your side.
