Pac Div bringing something I personally wasn’t expecting. Retro throw back West Coast beat is straight, straight uhhh…how bout..def!(It’s about time “def” makes a return to commonly used Hip Hop lingo. I’ll start it’s resurgence here.) It’s taken awhile but I think the West has gotten back much of the credibility it lost those dreadful fallout years after Dre left Death Row and the G-Funk era up and left with him. Pac Div reassuring me that the left coast’s new class is definitely hungry. Check out “Shut Up” on The Pac Div EP produced by Cool Kid Chuck Inglish. My god, that track is more than worth the price of admission.

Shit Popped Off

March 1, 2009


I need Dre back. I need there to be balance. I need both coasts to be strong again. With the rise and dominance of the south, it feels like Hip Hop is on the verge of bottoming out and collapsing in on itself(if it hasn’t already). With a mere stroke of his hand, the good doctor can single-handedly bring the left coast back to proper form. I haven’t been obsessed with a west coast album since Doggystyle and The Chronic!(The Chronic 2001 didn’t do it for me) That was nearly 20 years ago! It’s been waaaaay too long. *sniff* I need to love again. Please Doctor…just make me love again.
