When you talk about West Coast hip-hop, you have to talk about Ice Cube. The man born O'Shea Jackson has done just about everything a rapper can do: He played a major role in one of the greatest rap groups of all time (N.W.A.), dropped two certified classics (AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted and Death Certificate), got into legendary beefs, dropped tons of hits, and everything in between. And although he's spent the early part of the last decade on his Hollywood grind, since 2006 he's dropped an album every two years. Today, his ninth LP, I Am The West, hits stores. Calling yourself the West is a bold claim, but if anyone deserves the title it's certainly him. That's why we got Cube to name his 11 Favorite West Coast MCs (in no particular order) because, well...he is the West.
