West Coast Pioneers

After recently coming across and downloading some of Dr. Dre’s legendary swapmeet mixtapes I did a few searches and came across this West Coast Pioneers site which is like the west coast version of Jayquan’s site. It’s obvious lots of work went into this. Crazy amounts of information including interviews, original scanned articles, videos, lyrics etc. Respect due to Stefan Schütze, Sandro De Gaetani and the rest of the people holding it down. Link

Nowadays West Coast Rap is a multimillion dollar business, but how did it all begin? This website will take you on a trip to the forgotten days of the early West Coast Hip Hop scene when fame came before money and the foremost goal was to get the people dancing and the party rocking.
