XXL Celebrates “Self-Destruction” & “We’re All In the Same Gang” [360]

Produced by Dr. Dre, “We’re All In The Same Gang,” is a 1990 single by a collection of left coast emcees aimed at bringing a stop to gang violence in the inner cities. Like their east coast counterparts did a year prior, The West Coast Rap All-Stars proved that hip-hop talent can come together for a greater good.
