East Coast West Coast Rivalry
I dug up something, thanks to my man madd_dogg
Even though arsenio hall had west coast artists appearing on his show, ALL artists shown above are East Coast Artists excluding YoYo, when the record was in Hollywood, California. Do you think that East and West Coast had different views or attitudes toward collabing with each other, I know YoYo was west coast, but she doesn’t have the ego of a male, so what’s your opinion?
^^ Lol @ them not even answering your question.
But my opinion is that they probably somewhat had different views of working with each other at first, because of the way things were being run, whether it be from the east or the west coast, probably because one side had gangs and the other didn’t until later on.
Like for example this song, by MC Eiht featuring Spice 1 & Redman, who is an east coast rapper, but they got along well on the track.
I’d probably say the only one who had contempt against the west coast was Tim Dog.
The East, being the originators of hip-hop, looked DOWN on West coast rap deeming in amateur and the performers untalented. That feeling was pervasive with management and A&Rs as well.
Something that caused a shift was the fact that the West was moving units. Music is a business first. How do you capitalize on those potential buyers and market to them?
Also, I think the stigma started to wan a little when credible and inarguably talented artists started to emerge from the West.
