Eazy-E: 5150 Home 4 Tha Sick
2021 Apr 1234m 58s
It's 1992 and Eazy-E drops 5150 Home 4 Tha Sick! His 2nd effort and it's a Maxi Single. Eazy dropped this album without the help of Dr.Dre as N.W.A. was fresh of splitting up and Death Row was a new unheard of label. With that, we get some dope producers stepping up! Cold187um, Madness4Real and so even Naughty By Nature. We give our thoughts on the record, the cameos and the landscape of gangsta rap. Check it out!

This is his 4th album and we do a deep dive into the lyrics, producers and ask the question, where does Spice-1 sit among the greats of the Bay?
