When We Wuz Bangin
Released: Jan 2001
Label: Bump Johnson Inc.
CMW's When We Wuz Bangin' spotlights an underrated crew from the early '90s gangsta rap explosion. While not as influential as NWA, rappers MC Eiht and Tha Chill and DJ Slip portrayed L.A. street life with memorably descriptive and hard-edged stories. The comp includes most of their high points like the movie soundtrack themes "Growin' up in the Hood" and "Streiht Up Menace," and the classic early single "One Time Gaffled 'Em Up." It also features mixtape favorites "Duck Sick," "Def Wish II" and "Late Night Hype", and excellent B-sides "I'm Wit Dat" and "Whose Is It?"
