    6. Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg - "Nuthin' But A 'G' Thang" (Death Row, 1992)

    Oakley Sunglasses Cheap Compton and Long Beach together? You know you're in trouble.

    12. ‪Guerilla Black ft. Beenie Man - Compton ‬ (Virgin, 2004)

    Replica Oakleys For those who don't recall this strange episode in CPT musical history - no, your ears are not deceiving you. Guerilla Black does sound a lot like... someone... eh.. the name escapes us right now. But there's other things that feel incongruoust. Maybe it's the Sister Nancy "Bam Bam" sample. Maybe it's the chosen milieu depicting scenes of the good life, the lyrical references to Cristal and bagels, the visual references to the East Coast gangsta flick Knockoff Oakleys Discount Oakley Sunglasses Belly Fake Oakleys , Oh... and the inclusion of Jamaican dancehall king Beenie Man. Shouldn't this song be titled.. oh... say... Oakley Sunglasses Cheap Cheap Oakleys "Brooklyn" Knockoff Oakley Sunglasses Replica Oakley Sunglasses ? Really. We. Just. Don't. Understand.

    15. K9 and MC Eiht - "Compton" (Fulldeck Records, 2009)

    Knockoff Oakleys Buoyed by Eiht's presence, this video, despite its low budget, semi-obscurity, Replica Oakley Sunglasses Discount Oakley Sunglasses and lack of any historic value, just might actually turn out to be our favorite one of the bunch. Can't really put our finger on the reason why. But it's definitely not dude's 'fro. There's just that inexplicable Fake Oakleys Cheap Oakleys something Knockoff Oakley Sunglasses - a Fake Oakley Sunglasses je nes se Replica Oakleys Cheap Oakley Sunglasses CPT - that resonates with us 'bout this to which we can remark, Geah!
