- The Original: Credited as one of the pioneering rappers of West Coast hip hop, over his three-decade career Too Short has collaborated with Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Diddy, and more.
- The Music: best known for hits such as “The Ghetto,” “Blow the Whistle,” and “Ain’t Nothing Like Pimpin’”
- The Latest: After a five-year break, Too Short’s plans on breaking his silence with The Pimp Tape, an album that will be released mid-2018 and features guests spots by rappers such as G-Eazy, 2 Chainz, and Snoop Dogg.
- The G: stands for “Griffin,” but given the career of Warren G, it could also stand for “Game,” which he’s had for decades
- 213: the group he founded in 1990 with Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg, named after the former area code of his Long Beach hometown. It was there that the mayor once dedicated an official “Warren G. Week” (August 1–6, 2005).
- 213 minus 2: When Nate and Snoop went to Death Row Records, a solo Warren perfected his production and flow by working with 2Pac and providing sampling on Dre’s “Nuthin’ But a G-Thang” and Snoop’s Doggystyle. Then he dropped . . .
- Regulate . . . G Funk Era: the triple-platinum-selling 1994 debut that unleashed the Grammy-nominated single “Regulate” and proved once and for all that it’s possible to rap over a Michael McDonald track.
- Where you’ve seen Warren G lately: on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he played “Regulate” with Kenny G., and touring in celebration of his debut album’s 20th anniversary
- What’s new: Regulate . . . G Funk Era Pt. 2 EP, the long-awaited sequel that features “My House” and recently unearthed vocals from the departed Nate Dogg
- What to expect: a set stuffed with gems from Warren’s six-plus album oeuvre, a shout-out or two to Nate, and an audience-uniting performance of “Regulate”
Tha Dogg Pound
- Death Row Records’ Daz Dillinger and Kurupt stole the show in standout appearances on Dre’s The Chronic and Snoop’s Doggystyle.
