the thing i don't like is things like these

http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:fifqxqwhldhe~T0

Above the Law's third album, Uncle Sam's Curse,
shows the Los Angeles rap crew incorporating some of Dr. Dre's sonic innovations into their basic gangster rap sound. The group remains fine rappers and several of the tracks rank among their finest work, but the album is little more than a holding pattern -- instead of moving forward, they're just keeping up with their contemporaries.

give the original developers sum respect mayn.


As long as those words ain't coming from the involved,they don't mean shit.
But it's disrespectfull to not know your shit (or do research) if you write for a "official outlet"  >:(
Please keep in mind that Dre has never spoken publicly about the orgins of G-Funk or that he was the creator (to my knowledge)  ;)

Now I didn't have a problem with that because, as I just explained to you, I was his understudy, no problem, you know what I’m saying,
you know, you give some stuff, I give some stuff, we gel together, you know what I mean?
What my problem was, when you’re addressed with it and you know ‘how did you find this new sound or whatever’, you didn’t say,
‘well, it’s this kid I worked with -- 187aka Big Hutch -- you know, so on and so on,I got the theory from him
and he never really coined the fact of where it ever came from.


Well,there you have it Dre.... remember to print that big and bold in the Detox booklet  :P :laugh:
Maybe we can finally rest and leave this behind us  :P

Come on now. Allmusic is about rock and stuff like that. If you want some deep knowledge go to a hip hop dedicated site, these are just touching the surface.  :)

A 1991 EP was released to promote the groups sophomore album. However, by the time Vocally Pimpin was released, it had received mixed reviews. With only a scant few new songs and mostly remixes, the EP did not perform well.

It was during this time Dr, Dre was involved in a messy break up with Eazy E and Ruthless Records, and was (according to Ronin Ro's Have Gun Will Travel) contractually obliged to produce two more songs for the group. Although these songs were recorded, they were never released. It is possible the changing times at the reocrd label were responsible for the average quality of the EP.
