The third and commercially most successful album by Los Angeles rappers Compton's Most Wanted
contained such terse narratives as "Dead Men Tell No Lies" and "Hit the Floor." If there hadn't been such an abundance of similar material in the early '90s, these tales might have triggered intense scrutiny and analysis. Instead, the most common response is that MC Eiht
's raps aren't quite as loose or expressive as those of Spice 1
, Ice Cube
, or many others telling identical stories.
