Album: Bow Down
Formed as coastal tensions reached a rolling boil, hip-hop's definitive L.A. supergroup featured Ice Cube clicking with Mack 10 (red rag) and WC (blue rag). Their sole purpose? Proving that the West is the best. 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.
