    grab yourself morphine VST from imageline......

    also think about reading up on chopping samples....thats how hurt-m-badd did

    he sampled lots of obscure shit

    learn to play some keys.....piano was semi big in those days(kinda still is)

    an MPC would help along the way too.....unless you can figure how to trigger your samples in FL properly....

    Plus 90's Westcoast tracks are bass heavy, and the bass is played live, so you'll need to create some good melodies to complement your piano/other instruments.

    Having some knowledge about synthesis would be a head start. I say that because they used a lot of synths then, but now theirs so many synths that have the same generic sound theres nothing really special. Customizing and making your own patches will give you a better sound if you have a good ear for it. Hip hop kinda borrows from other genres. Most of the synths wern't programmed by ppl who make or listen to hip hop music, so you get a whole bunch of patches with extra reverbs, delays, echos etc that the trance, electronica and other genres are built on. I usually adjust it all to fit or just turn it all off and use my own fx. Anyway that's just a explanation of why i said its better to customize your own patches, it isn't a must to make good music tho.

    Listening to how songs are sequenced and the notation helps. Alot of ppl try to make west coast beats but cant make the drum pattern fit the melody. You need to understand how and when simplicity works with the notation of the instruments, whats to much and what you need more of. A big majority of west coast also uses filtered bass from other songs. Its more of a upright bass, like a humming sound you can feel instead of the low rumbling. I notice they usually boost more bass into their claps and snares, or just make the whole track to be bass heavy like elmin8 mentioned. The kick patterns are usually repetitive. Tempos are often around 85 - 92 or 125 - 132 more so like dance song tempos. Chords and scales play a big part in it as well. Another thing is try to not make everything so tight and quantized in the beat. It can sound a lot better when it sounds more naturally played. That can give more relaxed laid back sound especially with drums. Swing can help somewhat.

    Samples, and You prolly Need a Soulfull Drum kit, Cuz if you think about it, 808's and Hard sounding clean drums werent really popin in the 90's... you want something gritty sounding, but Thick...

    I do alot of 90's eastcoast shit and I Use alot of dirty high hats, and snares from old soul joints... but I usually rock modern kicks to give my shit more of a thump... Nah mean?

    and I think theres a tutorial for Westcoast basslines on youtube somewhere
