THE RESURGENCE OF THE WEST


The west is back, sure we have had the OG’z of the game sprinkle the Hip Hop landscapes with a few gemes here and there; but there hasnt been an influx of music like this since the Deathrow era and before that the collective known as NWA where reigning supreme. In comes Dom Kennedy, Kendrick Lamar, Nipsey Hussle and Jay Rock all lyricists, all indie, all fire among them they have 27 Mixtapes which are better than some artist records with deals on major record labels. They each have their own distictive sound and Jay Rock And Kendrick are Half of a collective known as Black Hippy . If these four where to form a NEO-NWA the results would be CRAZY. Their Latest offerings include From the Westside with Love II, #Section80, The Marathon and Follow Me Home (FMH) respectively.
