10 years ago in 2004 the DubCNN.com forums (DubCC.com) compiled a list of the Top 100 West Coast Songs Of All Time.
The list – as with all lists no matter how democratic – was controversial and divided opinion not only on DubCC but to many online.
The work to compile the list was led by DJ R-Tistic who has gone on to create incredible mixes for DubCNN including the iconic “Timeline.” The Top 100 really is a who’s who from across the decades with classic tracks you all know, to some lesser heralded cuts that you need to be exposed to!
To create the Top 100 he devised a ratings system and took votes from the thousands of forum members – true West Coast Hip-Hop fans and listeners, like he remarked at the time;
“This list has to be a true reflection of those who really listen to West Coast music, because if I took this same poll somewhere that wasn’t a west coast site, the results would be COMPLETELY different.”
To celebrate a decade since it was created we’re bring it back to the masses with a countdown from 100 to 1. Today we start it off with 91-100, featuring tracks from Jurassic 5, Mack 10, 2Pac, Brotha Lynch Hung, Ice Cube, Tha Liks, Xzibit and Eazy-E.
