Mixtape Mondays With Doc Holliday (West Coast Edition Mixtapes) (Throwback Post)

Update: I figured I would bring this post back from my Mixtape Mondays heydays, complete with disgusting WordPress formatting, some bad grammar, but always great music.  I really need to update this post as there are quite few more West Coast dudes that i’m a fan of these days…and plus this post looks like shit as I have upgraded my WordPress skills from horse shit to dog shit.  Slight upgrade.  I hope all of the links still work and that this shit does not crash the website too.  The fact of the matter is there are some dudes out on The West doing their thing…I actually know some of them surprisingly enough.

On this installment of mixtape mondays I figured I would show some love to some of my favorite artist from The West Coast since i’m out in LA this week.  Unfortunately, i’m having trouble with internet so this post isn’t nearly what I had envisioned.  Fuck it though, this is probably the rare case where I fuck with all of the artist or i’m at least interested in hearing their music.  Even, if the internet at Coffee Bean didn’t suck i’m sure i would still be leaving out some people.  I’m in no way, shape, or form a expert on West Coast music i’m an east coast dude to the fullest.  However, these are some of my favorite artist and some ones i’m interested in hearing from the West.  Anyway, be sure to check back later in the week for updates on this post.


One of of my favorite West Coast dudes and along with one of my favorite producers, Exile, also from the west they made one of my favorite albums in, Below The Heavens.  A big shout out to my little adopted sister  Brittany for putting me on Blu, she is one of the few people that I have met that knows as much about rap music as me and she is a girl too lol.  So make sure you also check out her blog over at http://velvsomersault.com/

I had never heard of Kida until recently, which was surprising considering how good he is.  He was also signed to Death Row along with Crooked I for a brief stint.

Chace Infinite (of Self Scientific) – I Would Have Killed This

Former member of Strong Arm Steady back when they were a 8 man collective, I would have loved to see them in those days.  Which reminds me I need some Planet Asia and Xzibit music, also former SAS members.  I, of course, love the cover.

DJ Skee & Evidence (of Dilated Peoples) – The Layover Mixtape

Young De

The West Coast Representative and former group member with our very own DJ NoPhrillz…and no there were no lost Phrillz raps, I already asked.  Even I can’t be expected to know every rapper, so I always rely on co-signs and Young De is co-signed by quite a few people including DJ NoPhrillz, Cypress Hill, Strong Arm Steady, Xzibit, and Kurupt.  So yeah do yourself a favor and check out the homie and look out for our interview coming soon.

Last, but certainly not least one of my favorite producers, if not my favorite.  I wish I had as many of his mixtapes as his albums to share.  I pretty much love everything from Madlib.  His Medicine Show series this year has been great along with the new Guilty Simpson album he produced.
