Legendary Westcoast artist Kokane recently was interviewed by Starforcenetwork. Kokane discussed his five favorite collaborations throughout his lustrous career. Those singles go as follow Above the Law – Kalifornia off the Uncle Sam’s Curse album in 1994, Easy E. Neighborhood Sniper off the Eazy-Duz-It album, Some LA Niggaz off ‘The 2001 Cronic’, Any Last Werdz with Easy E featured on ‘It’s On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa’, and Stay On Point Like Stacey Adams with Snoop Dogg featured on ‘Tha Last Meal’.

Kokane would later go into why Tupac and Eazy E were in a league of their own.

“You must go back to culture and look at their livelihood, and mannerisms affect culture. Having the opportunity to see 2 Pac be creativity in the studio him and I are like semis twins because of our work ethic and the ability to complete things fast. These dynamics are what made Pac special, and Eazy E was a visionary that was ahead of his time and even though both of their lives that were cut short they were both were able to make an impact that will live on forever.” – Says Kokane

The West Coast Legend even talks about looking for the next generation rare breed of artists looking to be patient and looking to develop their craft.

“Originality and something that makes them different from any other artist. We are working with an artist by the name of Aanisah C. Long. My wife and I have been developing her for years, and that is what it takes. If I see an artist that has potential at a time that I have the availability to work with them. That is what I am looking for from the next generation someone that has originality and the ability to be passionate about themselves because if they can do that, they will be the same thing with everything else. I am looking for those special breeds that are willing to do what it takes to make it.”
