If you’re familiar with legendary lab rats like Fred Wreck, Mike Elizondo, DJ Babu and other key ingredients to the Lest Coast’s legacy, then the informative, new documentary titled The West Coast Theory should be a nice addition to your collection.
Basically, a few baguette-wielding French filmmakers saw the unappreciated talent that resided in the west and called in an all-star cast (Will.I.Am, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Too $hort, B-Real, Battlecat, DJ Khalil, Evidence, Julio G, DJ Muggs, etc.) to diagnose firsthand the traits that have turned many Cali-bred MCs into world-renown celebrities and continue to keep their unique brand of potent coastal funk relevant 20 years later.
Since most of us will never get the chance to step into inside the studio with Rick Rock or soak up game while sparking one with Snoop, I highly suggest you set aside an hour or so and head over to www.WestCoastTheory.com to download the film in it’s entirety for $3.99. I’m already half way in and the studio advice alone is worth the ticket.
