    This week Ice Cube's Death Certificate celebrates its 20th anniversary. The album -- which we ranked number seven on our list of the top 20 greatest L.A. rap albums of all time -- is politically bombastic in a way hip-hop albums no longer are. Taking specific aim at the police, the government, Korean grocery store owners, white men lusting for black women, and countless other targets, it's startlingly apolitically-correct. Hearing it nowadays in an era where no one wants to offend anyone is pleasantly jarring.

    One of work's best tracks, "My Summer Vacation," however, concerns itself not with politics. Instead, it spins a great yarn about L.A. drug dealers who -- in an effort to escape police scrutiny and increase their profits -- head to St. Louis one summer to ply their trade. It turns out that the song has a basis in real life.


    In L.A. everybody and they momma sell dope
    They tryin' to stop it
    So what the fuck can I do to make a profit?
    Catch a flight to St. Louis

    Back in 2005, while working as a staff writer at LA Weekly's sister paper Riverfront Times in St. Louis, I investigated the background of the song.

    It turns out that though Cube most likely didn't experience the described events himself, he got the tale directly from a pair of Da Lench Mob members, Shorty and J-Dee. According to St. Louisans I talked to, their story indeed checks out. In fact, in the mid-'80s it was quite common for L.A. gang members to descend upon landlocked locales around the country and attempt to set up shop. Along with their dope, they also brought their slang, their gang signs, and even their drive-by shootings. Suddenly, folks were repping spots like Inglewood with which they were likely previously unfamiliar.

    Some of them are even lookin up to us
    Wearing our colors and talkin that gang fuss
    Giving up much love
    Dyin' for a street, that they ain't even heard of
