    Fake Oakleys Lets just start with and state the obvious: This is still the Greatest Compton Gangsta Rap Anthem of All-Time (a/k/a the G.C.G.R.A.O.A.T). Bar none.

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

    Cheap Oakley Sunglasses Compton and Long Beach together? You know you're in trouble. Granted, this video isn't dedicated to Compton specifically (the BBQ scene in the park looks to be shot in Baldwin Hills on the other side of town). But it's so iconic a clip that we relented and included it here on the strength of the fact that the scenes at Snoop's crib at the beginning and end — which technically should've been in Long Beach — were actually shot in Compton according to filmmaker Dwight Patillo, who worked on this and other Replica Oakley Sunglasses Discount Oakley Sunglasses Chronic Knockoff Oakleys Fake Oakley Sunglasses videos.

    9. Luke ft. Clayvoisie & JT Money) - "Cowards in Compton" (Luke Records, 1993)

We're actually quite disappointed that in 2008, a golden opportunity was missed to record a 10th anniversary tribute to this tribute. And thus, the circle of life has been broken. Knockoff Oakleys

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

    Fake Oakley Sunglasses 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 Replica Oakleys Belly Cheap Oakley Sunglasses Cheap Oakleys , Oh... and the inclusion of Jamaican dancehall king Beenie Man. Shouldn't this song be titled.. oh... say... Oakley Sunglasses Cheap Fake Oakleys "Brooklyn" Knockoff Oakleys ? Really. We. Just. Don't. Understand. Cheap Ray Bans

    13. The Game ft. 50 Cent - Hate It Or Love It (Aftermath/G-Unit, 2005)

    Cheap Ray Bans For actual songs about Compton, you can peep, well practically half of Game's actual catalog.

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

    Buoyed by Eiht's presence, this video, despite its low budget, semi-obscurity, Cheap Ray Bans and Replica Oakley Sunglasses Fake Oakley Sunglasses 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 Replica Oakleys something Cheap Oakleys Fake Oakleys - a Knockoff Oakley Sunglasses Cheap Oakley Sunglasses je nes se Oakley Sunglasses Cheap CPT - that resonates with us 'bout this to which we can remark, Geah!
