Makes Us Not Want to Visit

More than any other MC, Quik repped Compton. He saw Compton everywhere, and on this track he proved that "you have to be stompin' / If you're born and raised in Compton." Over a beat stitched together from Isaac Hayes and Funkadelic samples, Quik defined the Compton aesthetic, leaving plenty wishing they'd been born in that musical Mecca.
