Product Description

West Coast Rap has become the dominant form of music in America. It has grown from the mean streets of Compton, South Central, and Long Beach to the main streets of middle America. "Tha Westside" details West Coast Rap's notorious past, present, and future, through never-before-seen footage and interviews with the West Coast's most influential music pioneers. With rare looks into the lives of Tupac and Snoop Dogg, leaders of the West Coast Rap scene, this is an important chronicle in the history of music.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Tha Westside" Review April 25 2004
Format:DVD
Going back to the 90's when West Coast rap music ran the airwaves, "Tha Westside" takes a look at the days when Death Row and Ruthless were the hottest labels around. Covering many of the major events and turmoils during the rise of the West in the rap game, this movie doesn't have any actual interviews with the stars that it is discussing but it does have commentary from several of their peers as well as never-before-seen video footage of them. With an intro from DJ Quik and words from artists like Crooked I, Kokane, and Tupac's bro, Mopreme, there are a few noticeable names involved with this project. All in all, it's not quite up to par with the much longer and more detailed "Welcome To Death Row" documentary though if you liked that, you will probably find some worth in this DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Were the G's at? May 12 2003
By G
Format:DVD
Look i am the biggest fan of gangsta rap and have all the best rap DVDs out there....(and this is probably the worst)
There is not one interview with the real rappers! There is about 15min worth the money the rest just bores you!

The only rapper that you might know that they interview is kokaine and that is it.......
There is though - about 15mins - of good live footage of tupac rapin outside his car rollin up a joint......
Plus you see some footage of Dre on the piano with the dogg pound and Snoop!
There are 10s of DVDs you should buy first, but if you really like Pac, add this to your collection!
PEACE YOU'll

4.0 out of 5 stars Tha weside, only for true rap fans Nov. 8 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
"Tha westside" was a good attempt at making a documentary of the westcoast rap game. As a whole the film is sub par, but it does have it's highlights. Any fan of Tupac will not be dissapointed, as it shows 5 to 7 minutes of never before seen footage of pac rapping on home video. The film also has indepth interviews that give you information on what it was like to be in the cali rap game at that time. This film is very similar to the "welcome to death row" dvd, cutting back and forth, from interviews of people who were there, and rare footage.

i've rated this cd 5 stars becouse u get information about a couple of rappers and u c never before released material.
the piece of 2pac that u c in here is verry good and everybody say what he or she got to say and they are really realistic and that is what makes this dvd earn 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars West Coast History Live In Effect May 20 2014
By K Ron Vallatine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tha Westside is dope!! It really gives you a close up view of the history of West Coast Hip Hop. For those interested in using Hip Hop to reach and teach youth and young adults I also suggest checking out "Live Above The Hype: A Hip Hop Life Skills Curriculum." It includes 20 insightful lessons that initiate in depth self reflection in at risk youth and young adults, with a powerful foreword written by Dr. Michael Eric Dyson! Peace Tha Westside. Well done!
