Album: Regualte...G Funk Era
Label: Def Jam / Death Row / Interscope Records
Producer: Warren G
Back in 1990, while his cousin Dr. Dre was making noise with N.W.A, Warren G founded the trio 213-along with Nate Dogg and Snoop. By the summer of 1994, when "Regulate" dropped on Death Row's Above The Rim soundtrack, Snoop was one of the world's biggest rap stars. But folks were still sleeping on Nate Dogg, whose menacing melodies-along with Warren's slick flip of a Michael McDonald sample-helped make "Regulate" a No. 2 pop hit.
