Hot! Sir Jinx Pinpoints The West Coast’s Evolution Past Gangsta Rap

The work Sir Jinx did with Ice Cube on AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted, the Kill at Will EP, and Death Certificate, makes him a pretty significant part of Hip Hop history. Add in the assistance he provided on The Predator and Lethal Injection, and you can say he’s been involved in some of the most important works from one of the most important artists in Hip Hop. However, add in the fact Sir Jinx played in integral role in the building of a small studio inside of Long Beach, California’s VIP records, and now you have Sir Jinx being partially responsible for the recording of the demo that would launch the career of Snoop Dogg. The latter would play a major role on The Chronic and is enjoying a legendary career of his own. Stopping there would ignore the fact that before the recording of the classic “93 Til Infinity,” it was Sir Jinx that was working with Del The Funky Homosapien and Souls of Mischief, even attempting to sign them to Ruthless Records. Only acknowledging Jinx’s accomplishments on the West Coast would leave out his work with Kool G Rap. Needless to say, your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper probably wouldn’t be who he was had it not been for Sir Jinx—regardless of who your favorite rapper is, or where he comes from.

“I’m a caregiver to Hip Hop,” Sir Jinx explained. “When it gets out of hand, you gotta realize, Hip Hop was a sport that was made with no adults. So all the people that made it was kids, and the kids made the rules of it. So this is why it goes all over the place, because it doesn’t have a parent.”

With the release of a new compilation album, Sir Jinx Presents..The Gifted & The Privilege, Jinx is attempting to merge his star-studded resume of Golden Era work with a mentality very much rooted in 2014. During an exclusive Q&A session, Jinx broke down all aspects of the project and delved into his past, present, and future, as well as that of Hip Hop.
