Future Of The West: Who Got Next?

Back Up In This B****: After a couple false starts, the West is beginning to show some zest. Forty-four reasons come to mind. But here are 15 that prove Cali is definitely active.

It’s been more than 10 years since the West Coast was a dominant force in the rap game. While the East Coast, the Midwest and the South have had their respective runs, folks in California have been waiting for the ball to come back around. There have been moments—Dr. Dre’s 2001, The Game’s 2005, the hype of the hyphy movement a couple years ago—but nothing has restored the glory of the Golden State’s golden era of 1992 to 1996.

Lately, though, there’ve been some tremors out by the San Andreas fault. Snoop’s back on top. The Game’s playing hardball. Once-dormant giants E-40 and Ice Cube are enjoying late-career resurgences. A gang of lesser-known artists, too, are rumbling the underground in a way that makes it seem like 2008 could bring a seismic shift along the Pacific shelf. Here are 15 rappers and producers starting to quake the earth out in the land where the sun sets.


1> Clyde Carson

REPRESENTING: OAKLAND
Label: Moe Doe/Black Wall Street/Capitol

Like the “five-tool” players baseball scouts drool over, Clyde Carson has the total package: looks, swagger, lyrics, flow and songwriting. Though he’s released a couple singles (“2 Step” and “Doin’ That”), his recently completed, newly titled album, California State of Mind, is still in scheduling limbo, but his association with The Game’s Black Wall Street Records should keep his name poppin’.

  • bashin

    I’m from the east and i represent the west.
    The top 5 are bishop, crooked, glasses,clyde and jay rock but they forgot about terrance martin, whats up with that?
    f U xxl

    • Styles

      Terrace is basically a producer. This article seems to be covering rappers only. However, Terrace is a good reason why the West is coming back.

      • WILL

        ” IM FU**ED UP”

    • http://XXLmag.com Brendan

      Terrace is covered in the full version of this article, which is available in the new issue. There are only 9 artists listed here, while the full package covers 15, plus sidebars on Chicano rap and non-Cali West Coast rap.

      what about brother lynch hung if your from the west you know about every body killa west coast kush is the best

  • dameSTAtus

    Speaking as a person from The Town (Oakland), I’d highly recommend y’all check out The Jacka (and Husalah) and Messy Marv from this list.

    At gunpoint, I’d say limewire all the The Jacka (and Husalah and Mob Figaz) stuff you could and just zone out.

    Grown man rap.

  • og bobby j

    I’ll give them there spins….but not overly excited to hear from any of them. As long as I dont have to hear another rapper deepthroating Dre in every verse…maybe the star tat is really a target.

  • chapinsito

    Man this list is alright! But where is Omar Cruz and Spider Loc?

  • Lucky

    Snoopdogg is still good better than alot of other on here.

    Where is Cashis

    Cashis is really good he and bishop lamont
    are good

  • MASH

  • Chris

    WEST COAST! I agree with the list but put Ya Boy somewhere man! He is tight.

  • hell yeah

    great list!!! great artists!! xxl is finally waking up!!

  • EPA ROUGE

    What??? No San Quinn??? I am a fan of music period. I’m not even from the Sco (San Fran for you lames), but Messy Marv & San Quinn are the top MCs on the West. I listen to everything, and these two got that fire. They even did a album together (Explosive Mode), which is a classic. I put it up there with OutKast, Jay-Z, Nas, Biggie on terms of a classic album. If you don’t believe me maine, check that album. I am 33 years old, so I have listened to a lot of hip-hop in my time. East, Mid-west, South and West Coast music. These cats need more exposure. Once the world catches on, you’ll feel me.

  • Ether

    Glasses Malone Is Fucking Wack, And So Is His Single. He Sounds Like Young Jeezys Dumbass, Both Of Them Got Some Boring Ass Flows.

  • YEEE!!

    for real definately need Ya Boy on there he is nice.. Messy Marv is nice too and if u love MAC DRE you GOTTA bump his cuddy DUNA! C-Bo is on the come up also with his signing with Buck, and Yukmouth been spittin that fire. Sorry not a Game fan i cant fuck with fake dudes.

  • Sol

    Alota those artists aren’t gonna blow becuz they don’t have the right backing…and before anybody on Black Wall Street tries to sell an album, they need to release a Black Wall Street compilation cuz alota niggas have never heard of these dudes (besides butterfly guy). If you don’t have the right support, you can expect to fail. The top that I’ve heard from the west are Roccett, 211, Spider Loc and Cashis. They all have a strong backing, so you can expect them to do some numbers.

  • Nate

    Haven’t read all the names yet, but don’t let the “ali’s” of the world fool you. You can see through his b.s. You just say: Hey, I’m from _____ (area being commented on) and they all suck!! Then mention some greats that have sold 20M albums so even ignorant people can’t disagree with you. Those of us here in Cali know the greats… I’ve mentioned many times before those who deserve…. so I’ll just name off my head SOME deserving, proven AND talented in the Bay (Can craft entire albums)
    BAY-
    F.A.B.
    Frontline
    Ya Boy
    San Quinn
    Messy Marv
    Jacka

    If time allowed you could put down 20 great up and coming artists easily all who do their own thing and don’t copy other regions.
    Thank you XXL for showcasing us, as each region has a lot to offer. You just have to filter through all the crap to find the GOLD

  • JDreppin23

    I agree wit homeboy above me that Blu should definitely be in the top 15. I would put him in the top 5 just based on his latest release “Below the Heavens”. He reminds me of a young Nas or Common and I don’t throw that around loosely!

  • Roger That!

    I WISH THE WEST WOULD STEP UP, BUT…

    I wouldn’t bank too much on the Westcoast making any kind of come back. Between Dre & Snoop, Gangsta Rap is nearly 40 years old and all the Funk records have already been sampled.

    Todays young rap music consumer wants to just bob their head to the beat, wear the clothes and accessories, and not be challenged or scared by the artist. In there eyes songs are disposable and artist and a dime a dozen built by the labels not to last!

    I hate every ‘Rap Jig’ that comes out the South, but ignorance and materialism sells – not how hard you represent your side of the map or actually making good music.

    Sorry, but with all the ignorant Jigs with demos in Texas, Georgia, and Florida the South is just getting started with its destuction of this thing we use to love called Hip-Hop!

  • moresickaMC

  • WESTCOAST G

    DO NOT SLEEP ON PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!TRUST ME….THE KID IS FIRE!!!!!

  • FirstN10

    I feel some of the artist on here, but the Best artist in the Bay arn’t even on the list. Listen to The Frontline if you REALLY want the best of the best in the Bay. They are the most underated group in the country. Check for San Quinn, Ya Boy, Big Rich…EA-SKI and CMT are the Best producers out of the West right now period. XXL needs to do their homework when making these list.

  • NY-StateOfMind

    maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, first of all, Crooked I takes the 1st, 2nd AND the 3rd spot on this list, have yall heard this nigga spit??? I mean, Im from NY, but this nigga just cant be fucked with, by anybody, and Im a Jay fan. Second, whoever put Spider loc in that shit is either deaf, or retarded, that nigga cant rap, period.

    Glasses is cool, I like the new vid, I fucks with Ya Boy too, he dope, that Mista Fab hyphy bullshit gotta go though

  • ReadMyWords

    For them to not mention Zion I, The Frontline or San Quinn is beyond overlooking the best of the west.

  • EFFeX

    Crooked I all day, once that album drops he’s going to turn a lot of heads!

    Dudes shouldn’t sleep on Eastwood either, dude got the potential to blow up.

  • Da Truth

    Crooked I has convinced me he’s got next…that nigga is hungry as muthafucka…I can’t see no nigga from the west fuckin with his pen at all

  • Biggie

    westsiiiiiiiiiiide, westcoast music its about real life, gangbangin & low low’s, All That hyphy bullshit ain’t notin related to westcoast rap, all u hyphy muthafuckas should move to atlanta or somewhere where that fake bullshit goes on cuz on the west we keep it gangsta, the hyphy movement in an embarassment to the west, E-40 $ short used to keep it real, now they on that hyphy bullshit too. we need gangsta rap, with Crooked I, Bishop lamont, Omar Cruz, & Spider Loc Westcoast its gon be back on top.

    P.S. When Detox Comes Out, All U Fake Muthafuckas Gon Have To Bow Down to the West!

    Be Clear this isn’t a Top 15 list in the sense that #1 is better or more likely to blow than #15. There are numbers to correspond with the pictures. And all you fans of west coast music and artists, go buy the magazine so I have more leverage to get west coast shit in the mag.

  • yourFATazzMAMA

    The west ain’t gonna blow up dis time unless portland and seattle steps in the game, cali did all it can do, they runnin out of rappers, compared to the East and South region, Cali is juss doin it alone while the East has N.Y. Jerz, Philly. And south has ATL, Texas, Florida, N.O. Tenn, and more

  • AskAboutMe

    I’m glad that the XXL is giving the West some love. I am also feelin the fact that some of the people out there are aware of The Frontline. They make real music. The shit is hot and catchy, but lyrical and on point at the same time. Fab makes the West look like some fools if that is the only thing the West is being judged by. Crooked I has been a monster for years.

  • L.A new era

    this list is a mystery!!!!!! I don’t know who had a hand in writing it but obviously it was mostly based on relationships and not talent or real buzz.For BISHOP,GLASSES or CROOKEDI to not have the number 1 spot is crazy.I never heard any of the clyde dude bars in my life. Not to mention there is no Roscoe Umali and he has more spins then that whole list put together. I love seeing the west being recognized, but they should have done there homework. Peace to all the artist on the list regardless. But even the artist know if they deserve to be there.

    I been listening to west coast rap for decades. I agree with a few of these names such as CROOKED I,JAY ROCK,GLASSES MALONE,CLYDE CARSON, and MESSY MARV every magazine keeps forgetting to mention YA BOY. Funny how a bunch of us write comments in his support yet the magazines never give him his due. Ya Boy has serious talent! His buzz is growing everyday. His mixtapes are ridiculously good. Bishop Lamont is overrated. Workin with Dre nowadays isnt a great thing. He will use you and leave you hangin! Terrace Martin is a producer. Suga Free is old so how can he be on the list of newcomers? Problem and the Jacka are guys i never heard of and all i do is bump west coast rap.
