Above The Law – Livin’ Like Hustlers (1990)

Above The Law - Livin' Like Hustlers

The debut by Above The Law was a milestone for Westcoast Gangsta Rap. Nobody else but the almighty Dr. Dre was responsible for production. Introducing the so called “G-Funk” the album was a real zinger. It is very funky indeed and highly consistent as well. Untouchable? Well, judge for yourself…

Above The Law – Black Mafia Life (1993)

Above The Law - Black Mafia Life

Their debut “Livin’ like hustlers” is considered to be one of the best west coast rap albums of all time. However, this time Cold  187um took over production from Dr. Dre.  A few guest appearances (2Pac, Eazy-E, Kokane & MC Ren) spice up their third release. “Livin like hustlers” is arguably the better record but if you like funky albums you should definitely check out “Black Mafia Life”. To put it in a few words – G-Funk at its best.
