Northwest Connection – What They Hittin Fo

Tacoma’s Hilltop has a storied past of tumultuous history which many endured and safe to say survived. Tales of life on the hill can be told but what better way then through music. Death Wish Records came with the idea of compiling artists mostly from the Tacoma area and ties to hilltop neighborhood when it dropped its Northwest Connection compilation titled “What They Hittin Fo” in 1997. The artwork itself is a gem in history as it’s a supposed picture of some of the original members of the now infamous originators of the Hilltop Crips. With ten songs the project featured apperances by Wojack, Black Caesar, Mr Dog, Tha DCP, The Deuce Click, Crooked, Zelle Dogg, Melvin G, and Big Will.
