It had a few joints on there - but not letting Warren G on the boards was a huge mistake. That's all I really wanted from this album anyway - snoop and nate over some smooth g-funk.

My sentiments exactly.

The few cuts that I like (MLK is dope as hell)  are really dope though, so they were doing something right. But overall a HUGE letdown given the concept: Snoop, Nate and Warren G doing an album together. I thought it couldn't go wrong - but it did. Not totally, but it went so far under the bar of my expectations it ain't even funny.

It was a good album, but not as good as you would expect 213 to make. "MLK" & "Keep It Gangsta" was straight classic, and the album had alot of other dope tracks...

I really like the album. It got some fine joints on it like "Another Summer". Was one of my fav tracks in 04 and I´m still bumping it from time to time. The only mistake they made with the record was that Warren produced no song on it. I still hope Snoop, Warren and Nate will reunite a further time and give us an second 213 album.

Quote
well the album wasn't so bad, but the quality of it wasn't very consistent(yeah too bad Warren G didn't really produce anything on the album, would have been better if he handled most if not all of the production). there were some bad songs on it, some decent songs, and some good tracks ( another summer, joysticc, appreciation, twist yo body, give it up, gotta find a way, i'm fly; also on the advance version there was a nice track called what you wanna do, i don't know who produced it, but if you want it, let me know)

anyway, here's the G-funk remix of Groupie luv(would have been one of the best tracks if it was on the album):

Thanks for the remix man. Don´t know it before. Are there some more good remixes from this album?

Sorry for the bump but when this album first came out I think I had such high expectations that it was a let down. I decided to give it another look as I've been in the mood to listen to some Nate Dogg that I haven't heard a million times. I got to say I was pretty impressed. Nate Dogg is on fire throughout and the production (though not Warren) was actually pretty solid west coast g funk sound.

Favorite Tracks:
MLK
So Fly
Lonely Girl
Mary Jane
Gotta Find A Way
Another Summer (damn Kanye blessed this one)
Keep It Gangsta


Does anyone have these songs in good quality they'd be willing to share?

Groupie Love (G Funk Remix)
Groupie Love (G Funk Grown Folk Remix)
Dolla Dolla Bill

Or any other 213 songs that were recorded during this time that didn't make the album?

Yeah, there's "Rolling Down The Highway", a DJ Pooh remix of "I'm So Fly" and some other songs too. Also there's an alternate version of "Gotta Find A Way" (If I remember right?) with Butch Cassidy. I'll upload the songs I have later today. In matter of fact, check your PM's after you have read this message.

I uploaded most of those and sent 'em to kuruptlon last night. You uploaded two songs that are actually on the album. Anyway, here's the pack i sent to kuruptlon. It includes the CDS of the G-Funk Remixes of "Groupie Luv" (in VBR) and some other songs too. Including an alternative version of "Mary Jane" with only Snoop on it, called "That's What's Happening".

Imagine if 213 had dropped another album or if that Nate Dogg/Kokane/Butch Cassidy supergroup had formed........

who remembers when warren g said he was guna remix the entire project?

then he ended up just remixing 2 joints n called it a day

album was great tho .. only reason it wasn’t a classic was because the lack of warren g production. terrible decision.

why didnt warren-g produce any track on the album? anybody know the story behind it?

its been said that g-funk is 3 dudes. a producer, a rapper and a singer.

warren-g was the producer of the group. why he has zero production on their one and only release?

imagine nate dogg has no hooks on the album, almost like warren g has no production on the album.

however im very satisfied about the production on the album. dj pooh did one of his best production when we all think he is lost, also chill's run on up is a classic, hi-tek did his job very well, and mlk!!! damn Battlecat hit! definately a west coast anthem!

but why why why no warren-g?

I think it had somethin' to do with Snoop. I wish Warren G would've remixed the whole album, like he was talkin' about. Battlecat had the best beats on the album in my opinion. I remember he sued Snoop and them after this album came out. It was somethin' about the beats not being finished, but they were released anyway?

There was also 213 - Fallin in Love Again produced by Battlecat
On the European version (maybe Japan also) you had the bonus track "whistle while you hustle" that did not feature Warren G but Daz and Soopafly. Banging track. I do not know who produced the record, had that CD stolen.
