Best Bay Area Albums Of All Time: #9

Oakland rap group The Coup’s third album stands as a milestone in Bay Area hip-hop history as well as in the history of West Coast hip-hop as a whole. Dark, humorous, politically conscious, and fun, Steal This Album manages to be a ridiculously fun listen without losing any of its brainpower.

William Donohue from Young Bros In Love says: “I love a good story, and Steal This Album is full of them. There are the songs like ‘Breathing Apparatus’ that are really, you know, unsettling, but then there are songs like ‘Me and Jesus The Pimp,’ which is just an incredibly powerful song. I feel so many emotions when I hear this album, just too many emotions going through my head.”
