With seven LPâ€™s already under his belt, Warren G will release his sixth studio LP, Tha G Files, on 9-29-09 (an entirely self-produced effort) and it features the Snoop Dogg assisted lead-single, â€œSwagger Richâ€ and Ray J graces the LPâ€™s second single on â€œCrush.â€
His laid back flow and production have made him an undisputed Hip-Hop legend, but those attributes and accomplishments have and always will certify multi-platinum rapper and producer, Warren G as a West Coast icon.
Warren G exploded out of the burgeoning Long Beach rap scene in 1994 and while many of his West Coast contemporaries such as Tupac, Dr. Dre, and Snoop signed record deals with LA’s Death Row Records, Warren G took an alternative route and signed with Def Jam in New York, quickly proving he had something remarkable up his sleeve. His 1994 debut album, Regulate…G Funk Era, certified Warren G as a multi-platinum internationally acclaimed artist, selling over 10 million units worldwide. He also received multiple award nominations (Grammy, American Music, Soul Train) for his smash hit â€œRegulate.â€
Def Jam founder and the God Father of Hip Hop, Russell Simmons, would later cite Warren G’s signing as â€œa turning point” for the storied Def Jam Records imprint and its subsequent mega-success. “After that, Def Jam never looked back,” Simmons wrote in his book Life and Def. Likewise, as one of the first rap artists to appear on â€œThe Late Show with David Letterman,â€ Warren G helped put the West Coast on the Hip-Hop map with his success and by nurturing the careers of many other talented artists that would follow in his path.
Subsequent albums Take a Look Over Your Shoulder (1997) and I Want It All (1999) were certified gold and generated hits “I Want It All” and “I Shot The Sheriff,” a cover of Bob Marley’s popular song by the same name. Warrenâ€™s 2001 release Return of the Regulator showcased his studio skills through working with legendary artists like Stevie Wonder and George Clinton (the two, alongside the late Tupac Shakur, are cited by Warren as some of the great highlights of his extensive collaborations over the years). In 2004, Warren reunited with his teenage group, 213, (which also features Snoop and Nate Dogg) to release Hard Way, which quickly went Gold and further cemented Warrenâ€™s legacy.
Warrenâ€™s musical accomplishments have also translated to the silver screen, where he made an unforgettable cameo in â€œOld Schoolâ€ and he has also appeared on numerous reality shows including VH1â€™s â€œCelebrity Fit Clubâ€ Flavor Flavâ€™s â€œFlavor Of Love,â€ Ray Jâ€™s â€œFor The Love Of Ray Jâ€ and he appeared as a mentor on â€œCelebrity Rap Superstar.â€ Warren has also appeared on television shows such as â€œThe Parkers,â€ â€œCluelessâ€ and â€œThe Parent Hoodâ€ and contributed to countless movie soundtracks (including â€œPoetic Justiceâ€ â€œAbove The Rimâ€ â€œBad Boysâ€ â€œBarbershop 2â€) and appeared on video games (NBA 09 and Def Jam Fight For NY).
Not only is Warren G back with G Files, but the West is back!!
