California Calamity: E-40 Vs. WC

Congratulations to Diggy Simmons for becoming last week’s Top 5 champ! This week, we set off Round 1 as The Bay’s E-40 takes on Compton’s WC for a winner takes all showdown. Will E-40 wash ashore or does WC have the winning connection? Whose list gets the props? You decide!

Ice Cube. He’s spit [about] the streets since the beginning of his career. He’s from the biggest selling gangster rap group to date. He will sell out an arena to this day.

Ice Cube was a part of the most controversial group and the most powerful crew at the time, The Bomb Squad. Cube was the first n*gga to come out there from Cali and just murdered. Cube is a legend.

E-40‘s in there of course. I’ve covered every part of the game subject-wise, [introduced] a lot of lingo to the hip-hop, which is very important. I paint pictures with my lyrics and I spit the most game ever. I spit the sh*t that real street dudes can relate to. I have the most unique style in the world and my longevity speaks for itself.

LL Cool J needs to be in there too. I don’t know why he ain’t in the Hall of Fame though. The f*cked up thing to me is looking at what records rappers are doing now and people not looking at what rappers have done to make this rap sh*t happen. Without people like LL, you wouldn’t have all of us. We wouldn’t be able to move around the way we move around. So why not give props when props is due? He made records that made you party, records that made you want to punch n*ggas and he had the females. He knew how to make hot records.

I would say Too Short. He’s never changed his style. If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it, and that’s worked for him over 25 years. He’s been putting out records since the early 80’s. He has more platinum and gold than your favorite artist. He stood the test of time.

Dr. Dre. H*ll yeah you gotta include Dr. Dre in there. Look at what he’s done as a rapper and producer. He’s put out the careers of Eminem and 50 Cent. He put them out on a worldwide circuit. I got to go with Dre.

B-Legit. He can ride the beat like nobody else. He spits real street rhymes and that’s real street sh*t.

EPMD. Come on. As a duo? They brought that funk to hip-hop that a lot of people weren’t up on at the time. Then they put on Redman and brought that funk.

D*mn, this is hard. I’d have to give it up to Snoop Dogg. He’s got to go up in there too. He’s been in the game a long time.

I’m going to end it with Public Enemy. They were rebels. They helped revolutionize the game. They brought a message and a big element to the rap game. They were something that was needed.
