West Coast Love

Dr. Dre's 1996 compilation album Dr. Dre Presents the Aftermath features "Blunt Time," a song on which west coast rapper RBX uses the opening lyrics from Scott-Heron's 1978 recording "Angel Dust." This song was borrowed again by Compton rapper Game for his third studio album LAX on the song "Angel," which featured Common and was produced by Kanye West.
