Egypt, Egypt

Not at all making light of the situation in Egypt right now, but it reminded me of the old school MC Egyptian Lover. And he reminded me of how absolutely horrible West Coast Hip Hop was before the arrival of Eazy E, Cube, and the crew. LA Dream Team, World Class Wreckin Cru, Bobby Jimmy, and early Arabian Prince weren't exactly the west Coast answer to Run DMC. Respect due to these cats for setting the table for the "2nd Generation" but I usually skip the early LA scene.

it was like LA took the Afrika Bambataa style and overdid the whole thing. I think there was a definite R&B/Funk 70s influence in their music more so than NYC.

That is a pretty cool track. I had never heard of Egyptian lover before. Be careful with this one due to what's going on in Egypt. Yeah before Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg arrived, the rapping in that region was not the best.
