Ghetto Heisman by WC on Apple Music

16 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

While some of his first-generation gangsta rap peers have since transformed, WC has never wavered in his unapologetically thugged-out stance. He may not be as rich and famous as some of his OG homies, but longtime West Coast hip-hop fans continue to appreciate his hood-centric steez. Released in 2002, Ghetto Heisman is his second solo album, and finds the Cali killer rocking over bump-heavy production from Scott Storch, Battlecat, Rick Rock, and Buckwild, among others. Rhymes center on the usual topics -- low riders, gang affiliations, and a ball-till-you-fall mentality, with strong guest spots from Snoop and Nate Dogg ("The Streets"), Ice Cube and MC Ren ("Wanna Ride"), and Scarface ("So Hard"), while Cube and Mack 10 co-star on the Westside Connection reunion track "Walk." Although Golden State G rap was waning in popularity when this album came out, WC and company sound as focused as ever, unconcerned with changing trends and continuing to drop some of the hardest, street-certified music in all of hip-hop.

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
