2 Yukmouth

former memeber of the Luniz

Underrated legend

Lyrically speaking yuk is on par with pac, not better than pac but on par. Listen to all his stuff from thd early luniz to the thug lord stuff. Bars, lyricism he a beast.

3 Too $hort

raised in oakland most of his life

Too short only blew up because of coming out with the ghetto. Prior to that, he was known as a foul mouth, disrespectful to women, with nothing positive to say. He has no lyrical skills. Rumor has it, that while doing community service in emeryville, he ran across a city worker, and was given a tape to a young lyricist. He stoled her lyrics and came out with the ghetto the following year.

The Dangerous Crew didn't get nearly enough representation on this list.

Short dogg in the house
