Revenge of the Barracuda (Bonus Track Version) by WC on Apple Music

14 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Though he has never really gotten the mainstream respect he truly deserves, WC is a serious hip-hop pioneer, who has been steadily putting out quality music since the late ‘80s, first with Low Profile (peep their '89 classic We're In This Together), then with the Maad Circle (helping to launch the career of Coolio), then with Cali gangsta icons Westside Connection, and finally as a solo artist. Revenge of the Barracuda is his fourth solo piece, and although he forgoes the major labels to drop this independently, it is just as solid, if not more so, than his previous big budget releases. Relatively trim at just 12 tracks, it is nonetheless jam-packed with streetwise anthems that aim to remind listeners of his OG status, while bubbling with clap-heavy beats and low-rider-ready bass lines. Like many of his contemporaries, he's over 40 years old now, but arguably sounds more focused than ever. Check out the eerie, whistle-infused "D Boy," the neck-breaking title track, autobiographical "Walkin In My Taylors," and impressive posse cut "Stickin to the Script" featuring Cali cohorts Kurupt, Daz, Soopafly, and Bad Lucc.

About WC

A long-time staple of the gangsta rap scene, WC began his career with the groups Low Profile and the Maad Circle before forming Westside Connection with Ice Cube and Mack 10. His solo debut, The Shadiest One, followed in 1998, landing in the pop Top 20 in its first week of release. "Better Days" and "Just Clownin'" were moderate R&B hits, and his second record, 2002's Ghetto Heisman, entered the pop charts as well. Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and the Game all made an appearance on his 2007 album Guilty by Affiliation. ~ Jason Ankeny
