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.
 

 

213 (Snoop, Nate Dogg & Warren G.) Ft Kurupt – It Ain’t No Fun (OG Cassette Tape Demo / 1992)

Bought, personally by me in 1992, from L.A.’s Slauson Swap Meet. Later version ‘with all the bells & whistles added on it’ came months later. This version was on the streets first.
Feel the Funk.

As liberated from Dam’s personal cassette stash. The cool thing here is that the demo actually sounds like it could’ve been produced by Dam himself, the sound doesn’t fall too far from his own music recorded around the same time.

This song would be great even without the unreleased Nate Dogg hook, but the hook does push it into the mandatory category.

RIP Nate Dogg. Obviously nothing new or particularly rare here, but it’s sadly awesome (in the topically appropriate sense) how Screw turns the mood from a mild mannered victory lap into a murky quantum of infinite sadness.

RIP Nate Dogg. This isn’t new by any means but it’s never been posted on here, and I’ve noticed it often gets left out of SGP’s discography listings. Today seems like as good an occasion for it as any other. It also happens to be one of my favorite SGP things.

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.
