Which brings us to MC Eiht. He's one of the lesser stars of the gangsta galaxy, better known for his appearance in the seminal gangsta film Menace II Society than for any of his ten albums. Now that MC Eiht appears as a character in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, his career is getting a bit of a boost again. It's a good thing. His laid-back drawl evokes a proto-Snoop feel, and Eiht is a great storyteller, which is one part of the gangsta legacy sorely missing from today's hip-hop. He'll surely have some stories to tell when he drops by The Science Hip-Hop Spin this Friday. Tip your 40 and come on down.
