Can't We All Just Get Along?

Hot on the heels of Self Destruction came The West Coast Rap All Stars with this number. It came up on my iPod today and it brought back so many memories. This was such a big West Coast song with so many big names on it: Digital Underground, NWA, Ice-T, Tone Loc, MC Hammer(!). So major. The crazy thing about this record, is that about half the rappers were gangster rappers. Gangster rappers rapping about stopping gang violence. Think about that for a second, and then think about what kind of crap is on the radio these days.
