Suga Free is Not Guilt Free

I love hip hop from Oakland, California. Rappin 4-Tay, Too $hort, 2Pac, Andre Nickatina, Motion Man, Mac Dre, Mac Mall, and plenty more legends hail from the Bay Area. Suga Free's a lesser-legend. He's got a sing-song style to his flow and he was all over Oakland tracks in the 90s. Street Gospel is his best album, probably because it came out in 1997 and DJ Quik produced all the songs. Traditional Oakland player music. It's a badass record but it takes a certain mood to listen to. It's a guilty pleasure for sure. I feel like I should have a drink in my hand when I play it.
