It was 1994 Regulate…The G Funk Era had dropped and Warren G and Nate Dogg were on every video channel and radio airwaves with their single ‘Regulate” off the Above The Rim soundtrack.Fast forward to 2015 Nate Dogg passed away from having a stroke in 2011 (Rest In Paradise), but Warren G felt the need to honor the late great Nate Dogg by releasing Regulate G Funk Era Pt.2.
The Ep automatically will bring back nostalgia with Taadow (Ricky Harris) on the intro then on the second track “My House “ft. Nate Dogg, Warren raps about what he earned in the game by paying dues.
The standout track on the EP is “Saturday” with vocal assistance by E-40, Too $hort, & Nate Dogg the smooth laid back album cut makes who want you pour up your favorite liquid spirit, fire up the grill, and play dominoes to give you that Cali feel. Also “Keep On Hustlin’ “ft. Jeezy & Bun B and “Dead Wrong” ft. Nate Dogg round out the EP.
Even though, Nate Dogg is not here with us in the physical form but in spirit Warren did not mention his partner in rhyme with a RIP shout out but probably wanted to remember him as if was 1994 all over again by making classic records for the people which was better that way.
Regulate G Funk Era Pt.2 did the legacy of Nate Dogg some justice and Warren G stayed true to his roots with his production and lyrics a definite summertime album.
