14. We Come Strapped, MC Eiht
I imagine MC Eiht and Spice 1 talked a lot to each other about their guns. Their weapons are like vessels they can pour their constant anger into on every verse. These tools of preemptive defense are, along with their microphones, all they have to fight the world with.
Once Compton’s Most Wanted began to fizzle, MC Eiht still had some shit to talk, and We Come Strapped found the East Bay gangsta slowing down some of the flavor found on The Chronic for some funkier rhythms. You can smell the smoke wafting to the ceiling on “All For The Money,” “Compton Bomb” rains sunshine, and “Nuthin’ But The Gangsta” features the always entertaining Redman. MC Eiht could mellow out or get hype in a heartbeat and his arsenal of flows seems endless, making We Come Strapped a fun ride every time.
