Chances are, if you asked a bunch dudes in their late twenties what their favourite album growing up was, a few will say Dr Dre’s Chronic 2001. They’ll then go on a nostalgia-fueled tangent about how good West Coast rap was back in the day, and how pansy today’s shithouse rappers are, before exiting the conversation to complete more pressing matters, like claiming work expenses and applying for life insurance.
Hiphopheads are notorious for clinging to the dynasty of 90’s rap, and while we wholeheartedly agree that yeah, those days were the shit, we’re also big advocates for the new school. Among those at the forefront of the new school West Coast rap scene is none other than YG. The Bompton blood does LA rap just the way we like it; bars about the streets paired with party-friendly beats. With no exception to his new school rule, the P Lo produced and Mozzy/Slim400 assisted City Mad is royally ratchet, while the London On Da Track produced I Wanna Benz should satisfy even the most old-school of hiphopheads, with noteable verses from Nipsey Hussle and the familiar 50 Cent.
Both tracks are available for download on the 4hunnid Records Soundcloud, along with another Still Krazy appetizer – a freestyle with Slim400 entitled Goapele.
