Some great list (minus the attempt at sneaking Compton on here) but they all prove 1 thing...

Mack 10 is the most underrated West Coast artist ever.

Dove Shack - Summer Time in the Lbc < Soon as I saw the title of this thread this song popped into my head.
Ahmad - Back in the day < Classic Hip Hop feel.
Tone Loc - Wild Thang < This track helped to bring Hip Hop to the mainstream. Not West Coast Hip Hop but Hip Hop.
Great thread!

2Pac - To Live & Die In LA
Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg - Nuthin' But A G Thang
Eazy-E - Boyz In The Hood
N.W.A. - Always Into Somethin'

Yes it's top 10 and i shouldn't have to defend it, it's you that should be defending your selections

Maybe you know a thing or two about jewelry.   5 on it is a nice little weed song but in terms of quality Dre's work is the gold standard but the stuff on your list is the stuff the jeweler takes a magnifying glass to, to examine wether it is truly authentic...When it has Dre's name on it the jeweler never questions.
