BOYZ N THE HOOD
Man, listen, this album right here is classic, and I’m willing to argue this one ’til I’m blue in the face. Name a bad song on here… It’s impossible. Tony! Toni! Tone!’s classic ballad “Just Me and You” lived on this soundtrack along with the song “Spirit” by Force One Network. And while I still have no idea who the hell those guys are this is a pretty dope song. This album had top-notch contributions from everybody including Yo-Yo, CMW, Main Source and, of course, Ice Cube.
MENACE II SOCIETY
Yeah, looking back at the track list for this album it seems like one of those “had to have been there” kinda albums. But I was there, so it makes the cut. Mind you, it had some really incredible songs from some great West Coast artists like Spice-1 and Ant Banks (SO FUCKING UNDERRATED/SLEPT ON) it also had some really strange moments like “Stop Lookin’ at Me.” All in all, though, you can’t deny an album that housed both “Top of the World” and the “Pocket Full of Stones (Remix).”
