This awesome graphic tee reps the West Coast Rap All Stars, a hip-hop super group that came together to record the single "All In The Same Gang," which promoted a message of anti-violence. This tee commemorates the group's one and only single together, making this shirt a truly unique piece of hip-hop memorabilia. West Coast Rap All Stars included both solo artists and groups like MC Hammer, Def Jef, Above the Law, Ice-T, Young MC, Oaktown's 3.5.7, Dr. Dre, Michel'le, Tone-Loc, J.J. Fad, Easy-E, MC Ren, Digital Underground, Body & Soul, and King Tee. These artists saw that young people in their communities were falling victim to gang violence so they came together to record a track that dissuaded kids from getting involved in gangs. The single topped the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks chart and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Performance by a Group in 1991.

West Coast Rap All Stars included some of the most seminal figures in the West Coast hip-hop scene, like Ice-T and Dr. Dre, who were essential in developing the genre. In the 90s, West Coast hip-hop artists had started writing songs about social issues like racism, police brutality, poverty, and crime. An all new genre called G-funk also came about around this time. G-funk, or gangster funk, incorporates elements of psychedelic funk and gangster rap for a uniquely, West Coast sound. Dr. Dre's debut solo album The Chronic is considered the start of the G-funk genre and his record label, Death Row Records, would prove to be integral in popularizing the West Coast sound worldwide.
