"We're All in the Same Gang," West Coast Rap All-Stars

L.A.'s gang epidemic was at an all time high in the '90s as thousands of kids were lost yearly to the streets. Former O.G. Crip Michael Concepcion orchestrated a project with West Coast MCs coming together to promote peace and stop gang violence.

Produced by Dr. Dre, "We're All in the Same Gang" featured Ice-TEazy-E, MC Ren, MC Hammer, Tone Loc, Young MC and J.J. Fadd, among others, and was released on May 16, 1990.
