Tha Dogg Pound – Locz And Doggz (Mixed by Dj Omar Seedless)

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.
 

 

Snoop Dogg & Dam-Funk – Do My Thang (Teklife Remix)

Layers of funk stacked like pancakes on here. It still feels very much like a Dam-Funk track but DJ Rashad & co. do manage to leave their own impression on it as well.
 

 

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.
 

Lil Chuuuch – Best of Chuuuch Worlds (Mixtape)

Deep in my heart I truly believe that someday soon Reverend Burke and RZA will come together to make a great album which will represent a legitimately modern continuation of Wu-Tang’s legacy.
 
But this isn’t that album. This is an extremely entertaining collection of old and new tracks from Burke’s pimpin’ Lothario alter-ego Lil Chuuuch. Here Burke’s/Chuuuch’s obvious talents get welcome assists from R.Kelly on several odes to fucking and the good life in general. But there are also moments of pure rap craft mastery – a freestyle clinic over the most classic Dre beat (‘Got Bricks’), and an incredibly violent slave revenge fantasy (‘Insurrexion’, which may have been recorded with the Django OST in mind.) And the linchpin centerpiece of it all is ‘Goodluck’, which may represent the optimal balance of the artist’s two personas.
 
So while I wait for the entirely fantasied version of Burke’s debut album, this will pass the time very nicely.
