Because it’s nice as fuck outside and this is called Locz And Doggz and was put together by a guy named Seedless and it includes a rare St. Ides commercial that apparently didn’t even make it to the most comprehensive compilation of them out there. Plus all the other reasons you can think of to listen to 90s g-funk, of which there are many.
 

 

Canibus – Best of ’97-2000

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

The best freestyler on the planet. The 2nd 3rd coming of Rakim. The future of hip-hop. He was anointed as them all, and yet as meteoric as Canibus’ rise was, his fall was just as swift. A mixtape phenom, he went from lacing Tony Touch and DJ Clue to collaborating almost exclusively with Myspace rappers on their latest internet-only projects. His career decisions and ultimate downfall may have been disappointing, but they do nothing to tarnish the heights of his apex. In his prime, Canibus was an undisputed animal on the mic. His scientific style, fueled by a swift delivery, made him the standout on almost any track he appeared on, much to the fascination of both fans and peers. Frequently he’d take over songs, rhyming for twice as long as everyone else with double the ferocity, and listeners loved every bar of it.

Nate Dogg – Nobody Does It Better

If Dre was the sound of G-Funk and Snoop was voice, then Nate Dogg was surely the harmony. Tying together lush production and smooth vocals with his rich, raspy melodies, Nate brought a defining quality to the music. Raised as a gospel singer in East Long Beach, he crashed onto the regional scene with his work on Mista Grimm’s “Indo Smoke” and Dr. Dre’s “Lil’ Ghetto Boy,” but it was his appearance alongside Warren G on “Regulate” that pushed him into the national spotlight. When Death Row Records collapsed under it’s own misdeeds, he took his talents from coast to coast, never failing to impress as the go to guy for that Californian vibe whilst giving career defining hits to the likes of Ludacris, Fabolous and 50 Cent. Many have tried to imitate him and some have even tried to snatch the crown as the king of the rap hook, but to no avail. They can come closer than close. Original they never could be.

Death Row: Unreleased

In hip-hop, and to a degree music in general, there are few record labels as storied as Death Row. Def Jam have the best catalog, some say No Limit were the most innovative, but neither compared to the sheer star power and controversy caused by the crew from Compton. Launched by Harry-O’s drug money, forged by the brute force of Suge Knight and critically acclaimed thanks to the platinum touch of Dr. Dre, the label’s five year run may be the greatest apex in history for any rap boutique. So great that even the soundtracks were classic. But the shit you heard was only half of the deal. The other half? Well, it comes with its own story. Almost a year ago, we dropped a Death Row: Unreleased compilation on our since deleted blogspot page and got some crazy feedback. It’d be a shame not to have it archived on our new site, so we reformatted it, re-wrote it and added five more tracks to the mix. Since it was previously posted, it’s been often imitated, and in some cases, duplicated by mark azz bustaz tryna pass off my work as their own. (if you’re going to copy it to your own blog, at least give some damn credit). But that’s aight though, because the 2.0 version is even better than the original, complete with even the write-ups and pictures packaged together in an XML file for your own collection. This is for the zigganz that was down from day one, welcome to Death Row: Unreleased. Hit the jump for write-ups, tracklisting and the download link. Peace to dirt_dog from TROY for the cover art.

Classic song, but this the first time the video for it has been released from what I know. Brings great memories of the glory days of the West Coast gangsta rap music. Enjoy. 🙂
