Years on Def Jam: 1994-1997
Signature Def Jam Song: "Regulate" (1994)

Warren G was the king of soft boy G-funk for the non-gangster set. Was "Regulate" the first hit record about getting taxed? Warren was doubly blessed: He was Dre's younger brother, and his hit single featured one of hip-hop's most iconic crooner-Nate Dogg-and it dropped when Death Row was running the rap game.
