Throwback Thursday: Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio

Speed: 80 bpm

Recommended bpm range:  75 bpm to 80 bpm, 80 bpm to 85 bpm

The DJ's Take: I remember my sophomore year of high school, this was on the radio all the time. And it'll probably still get a big reaction if you spin it today. A timeless track, and definitely worth a spot in your throwback playlist. On a side note, if you're wondering what Coolio's hair looks like today, watch this video to the very end - he should be the mascot for the Milwaukee Bucks.

If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with some or all of the following:

Simple Things (Remix) - Miguel, Mirrors - Justin Timberlake, Man Down - Rihanna, This Is Why I'm Hot - MIMS, Turnin Me On - Keri Hilson, You Make Me Wanna - Usher, Rockin That Thang - The Dream, Power - Kanye West
