In 1989, Dallas transplant The D.O.C. was the best rapper in the West. Dr. Dre was at his peak, too. Mixing soul samples from The JBs' "Funky Drummer" ("Let the Bass Go") and Foster Sylvers' "Misdemeanor" ("It's Funky Enough") with The D.O.C.'s brittle yet authoritative voice, the two made funky cuts as energetic as anything from the East Coast. Sadly, The D.O.C. suffered a car crash that damaged his larynx, so this classic is our best proof of his incredible skills. It also includes Ice Cube's last appearance with N.W.A. on the posse cut "The Grand Finale."
