This song’s always a bop. – Dude, we missed out on a great time. – I’ve never done this good
in a music episode. I’ve never– wow.
You guys hit my element. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) Do you think you
know some major ’90s hip hop hits? – (chuckling) Goodbye. – I don’t even know
the regular ’90s music. I’m not gonna know
the ’90s hip hop ones. – (FBE) Not only are we looking
for the title and artist, but we’re also going to see
if you can tell whether or not it’s
East Coast or West Coast. – Bruh, I’m not gonna
know that at all! – I literally love ’90s hip hop
and early 2000s music, so it’s kinda my thing. I sound so confident
and watch me get all of them wrong. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Cost me more to be free
than a life in the pen ♪ ♪ Makin’ money off

– It’s kinda groovy. I liked that. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– I have no idea of the title, and I have no idea of the artist. I would guess that this one
is more West Coast. – I’m pretty sure
they were saying L.A., so I’m gonna assume it’s West Coast.
I want to say 2Pac. I don’t know the title, though. – I think it’s 2Pac,
“Dying in L.A.” or something like that as a title.
L.A., it’s West Coast. – This is 2Pac, “L.A.”
and then he’s also on the West Coast. – This is “To Live and Die in L.A.”
by 2Pac Shakur. He’s definitely West Coast. – That’s 2Pac,
“To Live and Die in L.A.” And 2Pac is West Coast. – (FBE) This is
“To Live and Die in L.A.” by 2Pac and this is West Coast.

we missed out on a great time. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– No, I do not. It sounded West Coast. – I literally listen to it all the time. One of the artists was Snoop and I don’t know who the other one is. That’s West. – Snoop Dogg and I think Dr. Dre. I think it’s called
“Like This Like That” or something like that. I have no idea where
either of them are from but I think it’s West. – So the artist
was Snoop Dogg and Dre, but I don’t know
the title of the song. It’s West Coast. – Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. They’re both in the West Coast
and the song is called “Next Episode.” – It’s called
“Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
This is West Coast. – (FBE) This is
“Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” by Dr. Dre, featuring Snoop,
and this is West Coast. – Oh, my god.
I could have guessed that. – Snoop Dogg kind of went
under Dr. Dre’s wing, so his early music in the ’90s,
he did most of his songs with Dr. Dre.
That’s kinda how I knew. – I [bleep] love Dr. Dre! I studied all of his beats.
I love you, bro! You’re the greatest!
So is Snoop Dogg. Snoop Dogg is still out here,
making music, and his music is dope as…
