About this item

Two more classics from the storied history of hip-hop, presented on fresh 7" wax with one killer track per side.

On side A it's one of Snoop's unanimously celebrated finest moments, the 1993 stone cold classic that is "Gin & Juice". Seriously, I know kids younger than this tune that can cite all the lyrics back at me - not to mention Jonny Dub's grandma!!! Ont other side, DJ Quik's early concious hit "Jus Lyke Compton" highlights the early rise of gun violence in the scene that would later go on the dirty hip-hop's reputation in the media and press. But on this joint, Quik's smooth, faultless flow & inspired lines draw attention to the problem in funky fresh form! Add a highly musical backing track, decorated with plenty of jazz-funk nuances and you'll see why this track has barely aged in nearly thirty years!

Another one of those 7"s I can't help but think every home needs on their shelves.
