How old are you guys? I mean the guy is trying to fit today's music and bring a soul funk to it, its 2009 like it or not G-Funk is dead, there is no way this sound is coming back.. there is something called evolution you guys should try that. About Marvin Gaye, his music is timeless, we still listen to it because thats some stuff thats great music

He should start wearing black mesh t-shirts. A Mohawk haircut seems to be in now. A Brazilian bikini wax in the same bundle. It's all about the image. If that doesn't generate sales then yer were damned from the beginning.
+1

Excellent points! Also, he should try coming up with his own dance. Perhaps his song could tell kids to "shake" something. We know the ladies love nicknames for their boobs and ass. Maybe he could start some kind of West Coast super group with Jayo Felony, Yukmouth, and Crooked I where they do some sort of New-Age Doo-Wop concept. The kids will love it and the West Coast will be mainstream again.

But that won't sell any records.

As I said in my previous post, I don't think Warren's lookin for a huge selling single; Just makin' music & makin decent numbers.

^^
exactly. just keep true to the westcoast sound, and keep the featurings all westcoast, and dont dont try to do any sellout nonsense, and then warren'll sell good independant numbers. stay true to your own sound which is westcoast, people will respect you for that, and when you make a quality album of that rap genre, people will definately buy the album. i think warren has the ability to do up to 300k total sales on indy, if the album is made the right way. he'll do 100k total sales for sure tho.

anyways, i heard a couple new joints that warren was playin in the studio streaming live on ustream, and they sounded dope. despite the horrible "crush single" , and the ok "mr dj single" , i'm still lookin forward to the album. hearin those 2 new dope tracks warren played in the studio has re-inforced that.


thanks for agreein.

G-Funk is timeless too. I still bump my 90s albums, along with newer stuff. How is hip hop supposed to be recognized as a major genre if we don't treasure our classics? There are already enough new rappers doing autotunes and the features and stuff, so I appreciate the older rappers giving us their own style.

Is 50 Cent a boyband too because he recorded a smash hit with Justin Timberlake? Oh, how about Snoop because he recorded with him too?
You are stretching this way too far.  Just because you record a track with The Game, The Dream, and Diddy and score a hit doesn't mean you are a boyband. That's why some West Coast fans are so backwards because they are so stuck on the past.  They want each and every artist to do albums of G-Funk tracks which we already have piles of from the 90's.  It's okay to revisit that style for one track on the album; but every track shouldn't have to sound 1990's for Westcoast fans to put their stamp of approval on it.

It's not about doing G-Funk or digging into the past crate but I'd rather he tried his own new things than following a formula that is already played out. I'm not into hearing collabos that are designed for pop crossover appeal if there is no heart in. I'm not saying that an artist can't work with whoever they like but beyond a possible club hit, where is the long term appeal in a Warren G-Fat Joe collabo? Warren has got his fan base. He should have fun and get creative with his stuff, not just make a bunch of songs that pander to the radio and club crowd.

You guys need to listen to that brand new hit by The Game & Joe Buddens called "THE FUTURE."  Listen to the lyrics and the modern beat and how it appeals to several different crowds.  This is the type of music that Warren G should make and sit back and watch him explode with a little push.
