Were the G's at?
G | Bricks | 05/12/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Look i am the biggest fan of gangsta rap and have all the best rap DVDs out there....(and this is probably the worst)There is not one interview with the real rappers! There is about 15min worth the money the rest just bores you!

The only rapper that you might know that they interview is kokaine and that is it.......There is though - about 15mins - of good live footage of tupac rapin outside his car rollin up a joint......Plus you see some footage of Dre on the piano with the dogg pound and Snoop!There are 10s of DVDs you should buy first, but if you really like Pac, add this to your collection!PEACE YOU'll"
Tha weside, only for true rap fans

(4 out of 5 stars)

""Tha westside" was a good attempt at making a documentary of the westcoast rap game. As a whole the film is sub par, but it does have it's highlights. Any fan of Tupac will not be dissapointed, as it shows 5 to 7 minutes of never before seen footage of pac rapping on home video. The film also has indepth interviews that give you information on what it was like to be in the cali rap game at that time. This film is very similar to the "welcome to death row" dvd, cutting back and forth, from interviews of people who were there, and rare footage."
"Tha Westside" Review
Crazy Jim | Massachusetts | 04/26/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Going back to the 90's when West Coast rap music ran the airwaves, "Tha Westside" takes a look at the days when Death Row and Ruthless were the hottest labels around. Covering many of the major events and turmoils during the rise of the West in the rap game, this movie doesn't have any actual interviews with the stars that it is discussing but it does have commentary from several of their peers as well as never-before-seen video footage of them. With an intro from DJ Quik and words from artists like Crooked I, Kokane, and Tupac's bro, Mopreme, there are a few noticeable names involved with this project. All in all, it's not quite up to par with the much longer and more detailed "Welcome To Death Row" documentary though if you liked that, you will probably find some worth in this DVD."
A verry good dvd

(5 out of 5 stars)

"i've rated this cd 5 stars becouse u get information about a couple of rappers and u c never before released material.
the piece of 2pac that u c in here is verry good and everybody say what he or she got to say and they are really realistic and that is what makes this dvd earn 5 stars."
