Brotha Lynch Hung
For those of you who did not grow up listening to Lynch my condolences.
I was your standard backpacker nerd growing up. Literally, I wore a backpack to most social events with the standard contents of: Bic lighter, a pack of Kools (wow), weed, glass piece, tape walkman, and the like.
I wasn't really having anything that didn't fit into the 90's hip-hop pantheon. I stayed with Pharcyde, Souls, Gravediggaz, Wu, Redman, Tribe, etc. When I started hanging with some kids from The Bay things changed sonically for me. All of a sudden I'm hearing dudes rapping over g-funk whistle style beats talking about eating dead baby guts, smoking "hella" weed, and getting stupid doo doo dum. A few dudes were even rapping from jail (well before that ever became vogue).
Anyways, my favorite album from the era was always "Season Of Da Siccness". It's a no brainer for must have Bay Area albums, but if you don't have it or haven't put it on in years I would suggest you do and start gettin locc 2 da brain cuz.

Also let us not forget the unofficial Lynch anthem "Had 2 Gat Ya"
