G-Funk is a ’90s genre of hip-hop influenced by P-Funk and R&B. Snoop Dogg, Warren G and Nate Dogg set the mold for the new style and made it famous around the world. G-Funk: The Untold Story Of Warren G and How Hip-Hop’s Most Iconic Sub-Genre Came To Be is a documentary about the movement that debuted on YouTube today. The film can only be streamed through YouTube’s Premium channel. There are interviews with The D.O.C., Chuck D, Ice Cube, Wiz Khalifa and more. Warren G says,
“I really wanted people to experience the world of West Coast Hip Hop seen through my eyes, and also how it helped inspire and evolve the current music of today. We all knew we were creating something dope but didn’t realize it would have such a lasting effect on music indefinitely.”
The documentary is the first feature film from director Karam Gill.
