Well, what can I say? It has been a great year for West Coast hip-hop. Just a couple of years back people were questioning the strength of the music coming out of the West. It's obvious now that the West is back and not going anywhere anytime soon.
I'm just happy to be a (small) part of the movement. I would like to thank all of our visitors for coming through and supporting the blog, the music, and the West Coast. We wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012.
To end the year, I decided to put together this list of my personal top 15 projects of 2011. I wasn't going to do this initially because I wasn't prepared as well as I should be, but this is just a personal favorites list so here it goes:
1. Kendrick Lamar - Section80
2. Thurz - L.A. Riot
3. Evidence - Cats & Dogs
4. DJ Quik - The Book Of David
5. Schoolboy Q - Setbacks
