Some musicians have a huge impact on the world, inspiring generations of followers, and that definitely was the case for Chanel West Coast. The female MC was inspired by the late West Coast rapper Tupac Shakur. In fact, she's gushed about him in a number of interviews. In October 2013, she told Vibe just how impactful Tupac has been to her. "My biggest influence is Tupac," she revealed. "He was a poet, and listening to Tupac is what inspired me to start rapping."
Although the iconic rapper passed away in 1996, West Coast grew up listening to his music non-stop. In fact, she may not have entered the rap game in the first place if it wasn't for him. Between his music, and his book, The Rose That Grew From Concrete, West Coast flat-out fell in love with Tupac's artistry. "It clicked in my head one day while I was listening to Tupac — I thought that, yo, maybe I should write some poetry over some beats and start rapping," she recalled in an interview with Las Vegas Magazine.
Chanel West Coast is a multi-talented star, but if she had just one claim to fame, it would be Ridiculousness. The first episode aired on MTV in August 2011, and West Coast been part of the cast ever since. As The Ringer reported, the reality show became somewhat synonymous with the MTV network over time. West Coast received major screen time thanks to the comedic show and wormed her way deeper into America's hearts with each episode.
Ridiculousness consists of home videos depicting — you guessed it — pure ridiculousness, and fans ate it up after it premiered. Variety reported that during a stretch of 168 hours on MTV during one month, Ridiculousness comprised 113 hours of programming. Basically, it's always on. Additionally, The New York Times once ran a study about the 50 most-liked TV shows, and Ridiculousness found its way to the 13th spot. So it's no surprise West Coast has stayed with the network for so many years.
While Chanel West Coast was largely influenced by Tupac, she spent a large part of her career working with another great: Lil Wayne. The rapper signed West Coast to his Young Money record label, instantly taking a liking to her beats.
After joining Weezy's roster in 2013, West Coast told Billboard just how much it meant to have him as a boss. "He gives you the freedom to do what you want and be creative, and then he gives his official approval later on," she explained.
With so many artists vying to get on Wayne's radar, West Coast also reflected on how her music won him over. "I went to Miami, played him my music," she continued. "I played him a track and he sat back and said, 'Man that sh*t was stupid.'" Despite the word's usual negative connotation, West Coast knew he meant it in a positive way. "As soon as he said that, I knew I was in," she added.
As Chanel West Coast's career gained traction, she leveled up her squad; the TV host soon found herself kicking it with some of the biggest names in Hollywood. For one, she was seen schmoozing with Paris Hilton — who's undergone a stunning transformation — and her crew on multiple occasions. In an interview with LA Weekly, West Coast talked about how much she loves the heiress. "Paris always throws the sickest parties," she gushed. "She's literally the most down-to-earth, coolest person ever."
West Coast's friendship with the heiress isn't her only high-profile relationship; West Coast also formed a friendship with Snoop Dogg. While some may say that their bond is an unlikely one, they wound up running in the same circles due to their music careers (via VH1 News). In fact, the two rappers even recorded a song together; they released their collaboration "Put in Work" in July 2013, and it was an instant bop.
