Capone-N-Noreaga - LA, LA

Artist: Capone-N-Noreaga f/ Khadafi, Prodigy (Mobb Deep)
Title: LA, LA
Album: The War Report
Record Label: Penalty
Catalog Number: 73041
Year Released: 1997

The previous song ‘New York, New York’ clearly targeted the artists of New York and the city itself. Queens, New York-based artists Tragedy Khadafi, Capone-N-Noreaga and Mobb Deep responded with the release of ‘L.A., L.A.’ aimed at Tha Dogg Pound. In the music video, members of Tha Dogg Pound are kidnapped and thrown off the Queensboro Bridge. The New York hip hop artists did not take lightly to the song ‘New York, New York’ and thus were forced to respond through this song.
