The 100 Best L.A. Rap Songs

76. The Nonce "Mix Tapes" (1994)

Album: World Ultimate
Label: Wild West, American Recordings, Warner Bros.
Producer: The Nonce


A b-boy rifles through his cassette collection, which gets him reminiscing about the open mic scene at Leimert Park when, "Money wasn't really part of the rap/Pay was having people starting to clap." The nostalgia is so poignant he wonders if he should just go back to slangin' mix tapes. This is the classic single from the sole album by Nouka Base and Yusef Afloat (RIP). Peep Medusa in the video.
