    Biggie made a whole song rapping over West Coast beats. It makes perfect sense. The West Coast sound was selling and Puff wasn't trying to be underground, he was trying to make money.

    That was the climate at the time. You'd be hard pressed in today's climate to find a brand new artist without some trap beat influences production wise because that's the vibe right now. 25 years ago it was southern cali's vibe.

    LL's beats sounded east coast, Big's beats were undeniably west influenced.

    Im only talking about his main most popular singles, the rest of his music definitely had a NY feel

    Big said he wanted ready to die to sound like a movie because of the chronic. I think puff an them took that formula and found their niche in R&B instead of those funk records that dre had been using since the 80s.

    2Pac would say one thing on Monday and on Tuesday he's saying the opposite.
