the south has no good G funk except for UNLV's "uptown 4 life" which still was more bounce rap than G Funk.



quit hating Assassin, son was one of the best producers the westcoast had in the late 90s

1.  Chronic - Dre
2.  Doggystyle - Snoop
3.  G Funk Era -  Warren G
4.  Dogg Food - Dogg Pound
5.  Twinz - Conversation
6.  Dove Shack - This is The Shack
7.  Take A Look Over Your Shoulder - Warren G
8.  G Funk Classics - Nate Dogg

^^^ Those are all classic albums.  The Dove Shack album is very sloppy with some of the worst skits, but it's a hell of a G Funk album.

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Dre -  Source 1996 cover

"Eminem will be bigger than Michael Jackson as long as he doesn't change."

hahaha if Mr. 3-2 - wicked buddah baby or Boo - The Boss Player or 44 Clique - Mindofa44 is not g-funk albums so what is it and they from south?
there are many more g-funk albums from the south and they one of the best g-funk albums just after the SoCal
UNLV's "uptown 4 life - loool at calling that album g-funk, this perfect example of bounce and has not much to do with g-funk.
First album from Outkast (SOuth) is more g-funk that this.

whos haiting im just stating facts -  maybe the best form The North California but certainly not from the whole west period

you clearly don't know what you're talking about son... there was a HUGE G-Funk scene in the South in the mid-90's, and that UNLV album isn't even G-Funk and ain't even close to be the best shit Cash Money put out. Mike Dean, NO Joe and them have produced some of the finest G-Funk songs, not to mention T-Mix at Suave House, Mannie Fresh, Precise at Big Boy Records.

Houston, New Orleans, Memphis, Baton Rouge and even Atlanta put out classic G-Funk albums in the 90's.

by the way Assassin's music is not even G-Funk, it's Mobb music, and it ain't even that essential compared to all the classics that Bay Area artists dropped at the same period. still dope as fuck though but lol @ calling him one of the best producers from Nor Cal when you have Ant Banks, Studio Ton, E-A Ski, Tone Capone, K-Lou, Mike Mosley & Sam Bostic, G-Man Stan, Johnny Z and T.C. from Frisco (and some other) who have all way deeper catalogues full of classics.

as for classic G-Funk albums, people have provided complete lists, I'll add some of my favorite G-Funk records

Menace Clan - Da Hood
Kausion - South Central Los Skanless
K-Dee - Ass, Gas or Cash, No One Rides for Free
Havoc & Prode'je - Kickin Game
The D.E.E.P. - Parlayin'
Gospel Gangstaz - Do or Die


as much as I love Nate Dogg's G-Funk Classics, I wouldn't put it in a G-Funk essentials list, for the simple fact that it doesn't sound like G-Funk really and it's an acquired state, not like instant classic G-Funk.
