Description

Warren Griffin III (born November 10, 1970 in Long Beach, California), better known by his stage name Warren G, is a Grammy Award nominated American West Coast rapper and hip hop producer. In 1990, Warren G formed the group 213 with Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg, and in 1994 he exploded onto the Long Beach rap scene with the smash single “Regulate,” a duet with Nate Dogg, and its accompanying album, Regulate…G Funk Era. He has since released 8 albums on Death Row Records. He grew up in Long Beach listening to his parents’ extensive collection of jazz, soul and funk records, also frequently hanging out at the local V. I.P. record store. As a teenager, he and his friends Nate Dogg and future superstar Snoop Dogg formed a rap group called 213, after their area code. Unfortunately, all three had brushes with the law and spent time in jail, which motivated them to get jobs, also working on their music on the side. Eventually, the V.I.P. record store allowed the trio to practice and record in a back room. It was here that Snoop cut the demo “Super Duper Snooper,” which G played for his half-brother Dr. Dre at a party. Dre invited all three to his studio and wound up collaborating with Snoop on The Chronic. While G also made several contributions, he opted to develop his talents mostly outside of Dre’s shadow. He honed his musical skills while producing such artists as MC Breed and 2Pac. A break came when his vocal collaboration with Mista Grimm, “Indo Smoke,” appeared on the Poetic Justice soundtrack. Soon after that, G recorded his debut album for Death Row.
