Where you from? Oakland, smokin

63. Luniz - "I Got 5 On It (Bay Ballas Remix ft. Dru Down, E-40, Humpty Hump, Richie Rich, Shock G, and Spice 1)" (Noo Trybe Records, 1995)

I was nine years old when this song came out and God knows I wasn't thinking of goin' half on a sack with anybody (maybe a sack of White Castles but my folks were paying for that anyways). Still, if memory serves (and it usually doesn't), this song coming on the radio or Rap City resulted in anyone within striking distance sinking further into their chair by about 6-10 inches (depending on height, starting position, and chair flexibility). I've never been to Oakland and am woefully undereducated on its history, but I have to imagine this is its civic anthem.
