West Coast rap is a trend within hip-hop that developed in the 1980s on the West Coast of the USA. It was established in the early days by musicians from Los Angeles such as N.W.A, Ice-T, Egyptian Lover and others, who formed a musical counterweight to the “classic” East Coast hip-hop from New York City through a very unique style. The popular hand sign is the “W” formed from the fingers, with the ring and middle fingers placed on top of each other at the tips forming the middle tip and the little and index fingers forming the two outer thighs of the W.
In the early 90s, the American hip-hop scene was characterized by a strong rivalry between the West Coast and the East Coast. N.W.A broke up and three of the members launched successful solo careers. Ice Cube continued the aggressive style, influenced by Public Enemy. Dr. Dre developed a new style with his G-Funk based on P-Funk, which quickly became popular in the Westcoast scene. His solo album The Chronic (1992) represented the career start of later G-Funk artists such as Snoop Dogg and Warren G.
