The 100 Best L.A. Rap Songs

26. Westside Connection "Bow Down" (1996)

Album: Bow Down
Label: Priority
Producer: Bud'da

The title track to their 1996 debut was a squelchy demand for obeisance with an equally indelible video that peaked with WC getting his C-Walk on in his walk-in closet. How epochal a track was "Bow Down"? It inspired its L.A. radio parody hit "Chow Down." Eat up.
