Playing tracks by
Hurt Em Bad, Ice-T, Disco Daddy, Rich Cason, The Motor City Crew and more.
Westcoast Rap did not start with NWA. Here are the true pioneers of early Westcoast Rap and Electro. Many rare and obscure tracks from 1980-1983 up in the mix. (OK, Hurt Em Bad was from Las Vegas but i thought i can include him being definitely more West than East Coast :-) also Casper was actually an MC from Chicago but it was released in 1980 on the AVI Label from L.A.) And now Enjoy!
