West Coast Wednesday: “Set It Off” by Snoop Dogg ft. MC Ren, Ice Cube, Nate Dogg, The Lady of Rage)

With this column, besides rehashing the classics, I’m going to attempt to highlight a lot of possibly lesser known tracks that are collaborations between all the greats.  For example, this song, which features one of my favorite rap verses ever, by the irreplaceable yet often underrated MC Ren.  He was the dark horse, the George Harrison of N.W.A., and he went harder than all of them.  Throw Ice Cube on the chorus and Nate Dogg on the bridge and clearly it’s a must listen.
