Livin' Like Hustlers
Outstanding 1990 debut from L.A. Gangsta Rap crew affiliated with NWA. Cold 187um, KMG, Go-Mack, and Total K-oss go all out, flexing brutal street rhymes and mellow head-nodders. With stellar, loop-heavy production overseen by Dr. Dre, this record is sick from start to finish. Check out "Ballin'," "The Last Song," and "Murder Rap."
