The 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Beats of All Time

79. Warren G "Regulate" (1994)

Producer: Warren G
Album: Regulate...G Funk Era
Label: Def Jam, Violator

When Warren G decided to make his own version of "I Keep Forgetting" by former Doobie Brother and king of "Blue Eyed Soul" Michael McDonald, the totally unconventional sample took G-Funk to new heights and created an international smash in the process. The well-placed Young Guns intro and the outstanding vocal performance of Nate Dogg made this a song that even the staunchest East Coast rap supporter couldn't resist.
