It’s a sad day in New Jerusalem with the passing of Apache, who will surely be posthumously lionized as the rapper who put the Flava in the unit, rather than an early 90s one-hit wonder who knew how to properly rock a red flannel (take note, No Age). But “Gangsta Bitch” was not just any hit — the prototype for “I Need a Ryde or Die Bitch” was a veritable manifesto, which along with Positive K’s “I Got A Man” instructed the youth of America on proper dating etiquette. Granted, in suburban 6th grade classrooms, gangsta bitches were in short supply, but that did not stop the youth from trying to find their own machete-wielding females. Hopefully, this Valentine’s Day in Heaven, Anthony Peaks will find a gangsta bitch to perform stick-ups with.
