I'll admit that I may be somewhat biased because I am from L.A., so I nominated mostly L.A. songs because grew up with em and I like them better. But u must admit L.A. songs nationwide did have a muuuuch greater impact on Hip Hop, and most people who aren't from Northern Cal like L.A. music better. Commercially we did have much more classic.

While I respect your opinoin [ I do love all those songs], I still think you should of included more BAY AREA rap songs like DON'T GIVE ME NO BAMMER WEED,1 LUV,DON'T FIGHT THE FEELIN',NIGGAZ DONE CHANGED.  Also,you hardly got any PysKromento [Sac] sickness rap songs on there. I see like one or two Brotha Lynch Hung songs [which is nice],but you don't have anything there by CBO,XRAIDED [one of the hardest lyricists of all time] or Sixc on there.

Maybe we should split the list into 2 different threads to have a more fair & balance point of view.  One for SO CAL and NOR CAL.

It's up to you [maybe you are an editor here or something],but I'm new around here so I don't know.

Oh see, thing is I didn't make up the list with songs I like. I nominated songs just as everybody else did, and I gave my songs the same amount of points as what everybody else's got. So it's not like I just put songs on there that I like. The reason it's so much L.A. is because thas what people were nominatin. Also, there were like 500+ songs when I was done, and it was probably 50-100 or more Bay songs that didn't make it. Thing is, L.A. songs were more commercial, and many people voted for the same songs. But for Bay songs, most nominated songs were never big on TV or radio, so people were nominatin a lot of songs that didn't make it.

Am I the only one shocked that "Nature Of The Threat" didn't make it?

You might be...u gotta remember that many people on this site saw that as an offending song, and even people like me recognize it was lyrically tite adn all, but overall as a song it is not one of my favorites, mainly because of the beat and all.

It's funny how some people call him the "best lyricist in hip-hop", the "westcoast's best MC" and state that Soul On Ice is a classic but they don't even get him one song in the top 100.

CalebOhio: I think i can speak for many others when i say my favorite rap artists are white but i still want black artists to be dope. they are chosing not to be. that wouldn't be a likely believe held in a white supremacist group. I want Nas to deliver evertime but he doesn't every time Sage does. so Sage gets my $15 regardless or his status. fuck your status perception and labels you use.

Nope, I'm with you on that one.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

Yeah me too. I nominated it, but obviously not many other people did.

Thing is, he had some songs nominated on there, but he has had a lot songs, and everybody voted for different songs from him so nothin went to the top 100. He had seven songs nominated. Golden Child woulda been about 102.

Behind the walls wasn't even nominated. I think "Gettin it" was remembered because it is one of his biggest radio hits, and many people from this board weren't really into Too Short when he first came out, I kno I didn't get into rap til 93 and Gettin it was the first big song that I remember him havin.

word. "Soul On Ice" was a great album, but he got more potential. I think I did put "Goldyn Child" sumwhere but I forgot about "Nature Of The Threat" and other than those i don't think there's many Ras songs in my top 100 even tho he's one of the west's dopest

The list is cool, but still missing ALOT of songs, I think its funny how songs such as "Pistol Grip Pump" and others (which may seem a little biased, so I won't mention them  ;D) didn't make your list. The thing about a FINAL list is that the West is still making music and will continue to do so to make something final is a bit pre-mature. I think that alot of Bay area songs should of been included. I think maybe top 100 songs every 5 years would of been better, but list like these always have a large margin of error, because it's hard to really to be open and non objective.

I had voted for Pistol grip pump but it didn't crack the 100. The list woulda been a lot better if more people had voted. I mean there will never be a final, or correct list, but this is the final for right now. And yeah, you can't do a list like this but every few years, unless u just update the one u have, and I am not going to do that anytime soon.
Also, a few people said Bay Area songs shoulda been included, but there weren't many people who voted for the same songs. There were a LOOOOT of Bay Area songs nominated that didn't hit the list because only one or two people voted for em. And also, not enough people voted period, and some of the people sayin that this and that shoulda been on the list, didn't vote.

Major props homy. This brings back some great memories. Some surprises to me were that Jayo Felony's "Sherm Stick" was #47, so many Quik songs, and that not one Ras Kass trac made it. Unless you count "3 Card Molly". Where's "Ghetto Fabolous" ?

I agree. He never really had great beats. Another thing is that Ras' songs aren't really "bumpable" if you know what I mean. The classics such as "Nothin' But A G Thang", "California Love", etc. can be heard in clubs, parties, rides, and so on. Ras songs ain't. That's why I'm a lil' surprised "Ghetto Fabulous" wasn't nominated.

Yeah basically that's the deal. Ghetto Fabulous was nominated but it didn't break the 100.

Now if we did the most well thought out, most lyrical songs, in rap history, then ras might get 5 or 10 in the top 100.

Damn, I was talkin to somebody today in Florida, where I go to school, and he is from Compton. We were talkin bout west coast rap, and he was like "man when I do this party, I'ma try to have all west coast songs. Matter of fact, you know dubcc.com? They have a top 100 west coast songs of all time on there, and I was seein songs on there I hadn't heard in years! So I am gonna get a grip of songs from there" and I was like ohhh shit....I am the one who put it together, I didn't even kno he came to the site, so it was just ironic as hell. I don't even think he posts, he just reads the news and all. So I bet it's people from all over who are seein the list. This is a great thing.
