Recently, I saw the movie “Notorious”, the unofficial “official” version of the life of Biggie Smalls. Cool. But in reliving that era and eventually looking up information online, I also came across the whole East/West Coast Battle which directly led me to the source of West Coast “gangsta rap”. That’s right, the world’s most dangerous group–N.W.A. I was just a little kid then, but it was definitely something I know hit a little close to home, specifically growing up in Los Angeles and listening to Rap. Talk about keepin’ it real! I hope my work will be this good, and especially this honest, looking back 30 years from now.
