Flashback Friday: Warren G and Tha Dogg Pound

What a week. Drake carried Meek Mill’s unimpressive career away in a body bag, BET Uncut has been resurrected for some ungodly reason, and after about 15 years of idle promises, Dr. Dre has given us a new album. Review coming soon.

In the spirit of the West Coast, here are two albums from G-Funk’s glory days.


Warren G, Regulate … G Funk Era (1994)

You always remember where you were during those important moments in life. And I’ll never forget where I was when I first heard Warren G’s “Regulate” — I was just about to step out of the house to mow the lawn when the video played on BET. As you can imagine, I didn’t get much grass cut that afternoon. Warren G’s signature song is an absolute classic and his album wasn’t half bad either.

Tha Dogg Pound, Dogg Food (1995)

Daz Dillinger and Kurupt might be one of the most underrated duos in the game. Don’t believe me? Go back and listen to their debut album, which was a near-classic in its own right. Its place in hip-hop history was cemented after inflaming the East Coast/West Coast conflict, but beyond the drama and disses there was very strong material that still holds up today.
