MC Eiht "Reign"

MC Eiht 'Reign'
Earlier this fall, Compton rap great MC Eiht woke our punk-asses up with some words on Kendrick Lamar's "M.A.A.D. City," off the celebrated good kid, m.A.A.d. city. He'll be closing out 2012 with a solo EP called Keep It Hood, though, and is previewing the New Year's Eve release with a new track called "Reign."

Atop a warbly keyboard melody and a simple drum-snare setup, Eiht gets into why he's kept the West Coast on the map. Stream the song down below, and get set for what could very well be the last EP you'll hear this year.
