About this collection

Introducing West Coast Hip Hop

Exploding out of California in the late 1980s, the West Coast style described life in Compton and grew into Gangsta Rap and G-funk. Defined by artists such as Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, this new style took influence from the electronic funk sounds of the 1970s.

"I received my box today and was completely thrilled! Such a great selection, love the quality of the information included in the box and the postcards are a great touch. Have already recommend to friends!"

Ida Weatherall

"Good selection of vinyl, all new and packaged well. The art cards received are nice doubling up as post cards on the back. Value for money is tip top too and would recommend as a means of finding new music and broadening your collection."

Dan Robinson

"So happy with everything. I ordered one of the collections as a gift and it all went swimmingly. The delivery was as promised and the surprise of the actual records was such fun. My friend loved them! What a great idea for a gift."
