On this day in Hip Hop history, Westside Connection member Mack 10 released his debut LP Mack 10. Much like the majority of the work coming from Southern California at the time, this project was true to the G-Funk sound as could be and is considered a classic among the West Coast rap community. Although the project may not have seen substantial commercial success or critical response, it did kick in the door of one of the strongest careers in independent gangster rap.

This album also contains the first of many Westside Connection diss records. “Westside Slaughterhouse” is the name of the single written in response to Common‘s “I Used To Love Her” in which Common claims that the reason for Hip Hop’s decline is the negative influence of West Coast gangster rap. Following this record, Common responded with a diss track of his own, “The B*tch In Yoo.”

Following this project, Mack 10 went on to release seven more solo LPs before retiring.
