As you can tell, this is our very first post about a non-G-Funk album for this site. Also you would notice that I haven’t posted any articles in about two weeks. Been really busy with school at the moment but even then, I won’t forget about all the G-Funk fans out there who visit this site. There will be an upcoming article about a basically unknown G-Funk release. I am still pondering on which one I shall post but it will be up eventually. Now onto the discussion of this little gem that was released last year by Rawkus Records. The duo group consists of Geologic, the emcee, along Read the rest of this entry »
Don’t be fooled, these two female emcees are definitely not conscious rappers and their debut definitely shows that. Thanks to producer Paris, who is one of the more underrated G-Funk producers around, did a perfect job on setting the tone of the album. He even produced the entire album. More onto the discussion of the artists themselves, the female group consists of CMG and The Special One (TCD) who met Paris at a club in 1993 and was soon signed to his Scarface Records label after giving him their demo tape. The album sold over 300,000 copies thanks to such singles as Read the rest of this entry »
According to a recent Snoop Dogg interview with 101.5 Jamz in Phoenix, Arizona, Snoop Dogg revealed that his entourage has been urging him to release an updated version of Doggystyle. Most people consider that album to be his best work. Many fans, including myself, wouldn’t mind having a re-released version with CDQ versions of some of his unreleased tracks during that time. One example is “Nigga Named Dave“, which set the blueprint for “Murder Was The Case”. Another example is “The Next Episode“, which was originally going to appear on the album but Read the rest of this entry »
After a week of not posting about a new album, you probably are going to be amazed on why I am even bothering posting about this. This is just a lesson, a lesson on how not to make a G-Funk album or an hip hop/rap album period. I honestly can’t find one decent thing to say about this album. Young Dre’s flow throughout the album is terrible and it sounds like someone is scratching a chalkboard furiously on every damn track. Also the mixing is terrible, the only saving grace for the album has got to be the guest appearances and even then, it isn’t enough to outweigh the major Read the rest of this entry »
Recently revealed in a Dubcnn’s weekly podcast (01/17/08) by Kurupt, there will be an upcoming duo album by two of the most popular G-Funk artists, DJ Quik and Kurupt himself. Considering all the issues that went on with The Fixxers, which involved sketchy management and creative differences, lets hope this one doesn’t turn out the same. No doubt, we seen the chemistry that they have shown with each other on the mic in the past so I can’t see how anybody can’t be excited about this project. What little information about the album that has been released includes production held by DJ Quik and Terrace Martin. Expect guest appearances by fellow Tha Dogg Pound members Daz Dillinger and Snoop Dogg.
