Back in the day, before I got into UKG and all of that stuff, It was strictly bashment, blues/soul, and west coast gangsta rap in my yard. One of my favourite and I think under appreciated groups was Snoop Dogg's EastSidaz (Snoop, Tray Dee and Goldie Loc). Like all good things, it came to an end, especially when Tray Dee got locked up for doing a drive by on sum youts. When making "Street" music there is always that danger of the lifestyle affecting the music and vice a verser, like what happened with most of my former crew First City...but its this very danger and reality that gives the rap that extra special quaility of realness that alot of these modern studio gangstas dont have. So in honor of Tray Dee, and all those caught up in the system... this goes out to u!
