Continuing with today's "gangsta" theme, we thought it might be a good idea to have it boil over into Battle of the Beats. "Diggin' in the scene with a gangsta lean" was coined by William DeVaughn in "Be Thankful for What You've Got" a track that, sadly, didn't make our recent sampler for not being in the iTunes store. But the term has been invoked many times since, and today's battle features two tracks that share the name "Gangsta Lean"--one, an ode to fallen soldiers and the other, to marijuana--a substance with which we are most certainly unfamiliar.
DRS: "Gangsta Lean"
