Forget about all the crip walking, gang sign throw-ups and hoo-riding associated with West Coast rap's greatest years. G-funk is party music, and everybody's invited. There's a reason why parts of the video for Dr. Dre's "Nuthin' but a G Thang" were filmed at a barbecue. G-funk was made for rolling through the city, windows down and the stereo turned up. And chilling in the backyard, with a few chicken legs and hamburgers sizzling on the grill. G-funk is the soundtrack for smokin' some of that sticky-icky-icky. It's about Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Daz Dillinger and Kurupt, DJ Quik, and 2Pac in his "Live and Die in L.A." final years. And it ain't a hit song if Nate Dogg ain't singin' on it.
