Since the birth of Hip Hop over 20 years ago, the West Coast has been a significant force in its success, giving voice to such icons as Ice-T, Snoop Dogg, DJ Quik, and the forefathers of gangster rap, NWA. When West Coast Rap hit the music business, it took the political voice of East Coast Rappers and gave it the street edge needed to relate to inner-city youth from the streets of Compton, to the Oakland projects, eventually moving through neighborhoods nationwide. Hundreds of music industry leaders will join Good Game Entertainment in Hollywood, CA, on August 30, 2009 at THE “BEST COAST MUSIC AWARDS” to celebrate the contributions of rappers, producers, dj’s, and retail outlets, representing the West Coast.
