Man, I wish I had that many Kung Fu Flicks... Over time I may have collected that many. But damn they keep disappearing! So, as far as music goes the West Coast Pioneers would have to include cats like Egyptian Lover, LA Dream Team, World Class Wreckin Cru(Dr. Dre) and even earlier Capt. Rapp. I would also say that some of the DJs from out here changed the game in the 80s... DJs like Apollo from the Bay Area & Alladin from Low Profile which included Dub C(1989). Alladin later became Ice T's DJ. But I can tell you that in 89 NOBODY was cutting like Alladin! But... if I'm gonna say what the West Coast influenced most it is definitely Popping & Locking. Popping is known to go back to the late 60's before Breaking was ever even recognized. The first cats known for this were Don Cambell & Mr. Freeze. And as I said I grew up thru the 90's. I moved to SD when I was 7 in 1989. A lot of the West Coast scene went unrecognized in the early days. So its history as far as Rapping and DJing doesn't go as far back. But Dance & Graf has been around for a long time. In 89 there was a rap crew in SD called Legion Of Doom with a track called "Comin Straight From Dago." They got kinda known... When I get a chance I will tell you about the early SD scene of BBoys & Graf Artists. I may have to rack the brain a little bit but Ive been watching all that since I got here, lol!
