This Is Chanel West Coast's Favorite Song She's Ever Done

If you're a fan of rapper and reality star Chanel West Coast, chances are you've already watched the music video for the recently released "Secure the Bag" at least 238 times. While the Anaya Lovenote banger isn't technically a Chanel West Coast track — she makes an appearance as a featured artist in both the song and its accompanying music video, along with the Ying Yang Twins — West Coast's latest verses are literally music to our ears.

Ever since releasing her first single "Blueberry Chills" in 2014 from her debut album (which somehow still hasn't dropped yet), the hip-hop starlet has continuously impressed critics and fans alike. From her controversial Basic Instinct homage "Sharon Stoned" to her independent woman-themed anthem "Nobody," it's undeniable: This hard-working rapper is here to stay.

But which song does Chanel West Coast consider her favorite she's ever produced? The answer might surprise you — or if its title is any indication, it might do the very opposite.

Chanel West Coast's favorite song is her 'greatest'

In a 2019 interview with The Hype, Chanel West Coast said picking a favorite among the tracks she's recorded and produced was "tough," but if push came to shove, the one she's proudest of is one that coincidentally includes the word "greatest" in its very title. "I would say my song, 'Greatest Hit,' is one of my favorite songs I've ever made," the rapper disclosed.

So, what makes her 2013 track "Greatest Hit" her top pick? According to West Coast, there are a number of different factors that, when combined, showcase the rapper at her best. "I think if you were to listen to my music for the first time it's a good first song to hear," she said. "The beat is crazy. I'm a bit like singing melodic on the hook, but then rapping my ass off on the verses."

Besides the song's mechanics, the rapper also confessed that "Greatest Hit" has a special sentimental value, symbolizing the very beginning of her music career. "It also reminds me of when I signed with Young Money," West Coast explained, "because I recorded the song in Miami at [H]it Factory, basically when I signed with Lil Wayne right after I had met him." That's definitely a major life moment.

Adding that it reminds her of "that period of [her] life," West Coast concluded, "I think it's a fire song."

Chanel West Coast made a cameo in a popular music video a decade ago

Chanel West Coast first got into the music industry when she appeared in Mike Posner's video for the hit single "Cooler Than Me" in 2009. After that, she released her single, "Melting Like Ice Cream," featuring former GIRLICIOUS member Tiffanie Anderson. Three years after that first music video appearance, the rapper signed to Young Money Entertainment — and the rest is history.

Before dedicating herself to her music, the Los Angeles native tried to make it as a full-time reality star! Though some people may not realize it, West Coast starred on the series Rob Dyrdek's Wild Grinders from 2012 to 2015 and has maintained a recurring guest spot on Dyrdek's MTV variety series Ridiculousness since its debut in 2011. She got her role in Rob Dyrdek's Wild Grinders thanks to her friend Rob Dyrdek, the star of MTV's former reality TV series Rob & Big (via Newsweek).

More recently, the star even appeared on VH1's Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.

Chanel West Coast's catchy song got her a lawsuit

Chanel West Coast has made a name for herself in the music business since her start in 2009, but like most stars, her fame has come at a cost. In November 2019, actress Sharon Stone filed a lawsuit against the rapper for allegedly capitalizing on her name and image by saying her name dozens of times in the 2018 track "Sharon Stoned" (via Newsweek).

"During the Song, Defendant Dudley gratuitously repeats the name 'Sharon Stone' thirty-three times and the name 'Sharon' ninety-nine times," the lawsuit states, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Plus, the song's music video — which was released in April 2019 — shows West Coast reenacting scenes from some of Stone's most popular films, including Basic Instinct and The Disaster Artist!

Some artists would say that "copying is the sincerest form of flattery," but Stone certainly didn't see it that way. Apart from accusing the rapper of infringement, Stone claimed West Coast tried to use her image as "celebrity endorser" without her permission or consent, because the video for "Sharon Stoned" includes product placement for Shrine rolling papers. In December 2019, the Blast reported the stars were working on a settlement. They did not go to trial.

Here's hoping Chanel West Coast's future songs don't spark any further legal issues.
