West Coast rap group “Compton’s Most Wanted” are this week’s choice for Throwback Thursday with their song “Hood Took Me Under“. It was the lead single for their 1992 album “Music to Driveby”
“Hood Took Me Under” is based on the LA gang lifestyle that most young males are born into and how this lifestyle can end up in either imprisonment or death.
Compton’s Most Wanted were lead by MC Eiht and were a prominent part of the “Gangsta Rap” wave during the early 90s.
Some of you may also know this song from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in 2004.
I bought “Music to Driveby” a couple of years ago and it is a really solid album and if you’re into this type of music then I recommend you check out the album.
