Producer: A Tribe Called Quest
Album: Apache Ain't Shit
Label: Tommy Boy
Although we prefer the comic tunes and political message of "Kill D White People," (we still haven't forgiven them for Snow) Apache's debut single, “Gangsta Bitch,” was the only song of his to have a lasting impact.
Produced rather randomly by A Tribe Called Quest, “Gangsta Bitch” isn’t meant to be taken that seriously—after all, his album was titled Apache Ain’t Shit. The girl described in the song isn’t far removed from the girl Biggie describes on “Me and My Bitch,” and the ending of Apache’s tale isn’t far removed from Biggie’s tale. Still, we want us an gangsta bitch so we can buy her an AK for Valentines Day. Ahh, young love. —Insanul Ahmed
