Name That Group/Album [early 1990s LA gangster rap edition]
August 22, 2013 8:00 AM   Subscribe

Looking for the name of a group and their album from Compton (I think). Google-fu has failed.

I vividly remember having a CD in 93-95 of a "gangster rap" group out of Compton (or somewhere in LA). I thought they had Compton in the name of the group, but I've struck out on Google.

Things I remember: the CD's artwork was a closeup of a map of Compton (I think), along with the cliche pictures of guns, etc. I don't think the artists appeared on the CD cover. It was very much a copy of N.W.A.'s sound and delivery.

I know it isn't Compton's Most Wanted (MC Eiht, etc.).

Any help?

What about other NWA related acts? Like MC Ren or The D.O.C.?

Rate Your Music doesn't have many bands with "Compton" in the name that sound like the ones you're looking for, beyond Compton's Most Wanted.

Best answer: Maybe South Central Cartel? But I don't think they have cover art that matches your description

Response by poster: Nice one, Hoopo!

South Central Cartel is it.

By the way, in the background of the "'N Gatz We Truss" album is a map of (I'm guessing) LA.
