The iPod Shuffle – Warren G’s “This Is The Shack”

12.18.11 6 years ago 10 Comments

Ever since his career kicked off back in the early 90s, Warren G has been putting on for his homies. Pick any album from the storied career of this G-Funk pioneer and you’ll see that on each one, the man who was once handed LBC’s key from the mayor himself has been opening doors for talents like The Twinz, Mista Grimm, Da 5 Footaz, Mr. Malik and Bishop Lamont for years. But, of all the artists The G-Child has aligned himself with, none have quite matched The Dove Shack at making a track as relaxing as “This Is The Shack.”

Directly following “This DJ” on Warren’s classic Regulate…The G-Funk Era, the juxtaposition heard when these three dirt-delving Long Beach MCs met their mentor’s sliding guitar melodies and bubbling bassline resulted in an extremely unique contrast of mindsets and would end up becoming BBQ music for years to come.
