there are no g funk albums really in the history of hip hop that are essential except for maybe chronic and doggystyle and some dont count the chronic as g funk


unless g funk is all your listening too and if thats the case you should make it essential listening to listen to all the music that was used to sample on those albums.

I agree with you but that's not the point of the topic

IMO here we're not speaking from a hip-hop point of view, the point is not to assess what G-Funk album was the most influential in the history of hip-hop, or what G-Funk album you need to have in order to understand the evolution of the movement. the point is more to give a list of G-Funk albums that knock from front to back. what album you will like if you like pure G-Funk, and in that case there are many that I prefer over The Chronic even though The Chronic had the most impact. It's like talking about genre movies.

To me, one of the very best G-Funk albums is Conversation. That's Warren G best produced album, well above G-Funk era in my opinion, and it helps that Warren G doesn't rap on it and sticks to production and hooks (his hooks are always dope imo).

it's of course essential to listen to the music used to sample G-Funk but it's very different though and I get those who don't like P-Funk that much and are G-Funk fans (not my case). because Hip-Hop is a more self-contained genre, the structure is way simpler, usually 16 bar verse, 8 bar chorus, a loop and some drums, sometimes a bridge. the talent of the producer is to find a dope loop and to flip it. and you might like that part of the sampled song but not necessary like the musical direction of the entire song. for example I love Tyrone Davis's in the mood, but I think the way DJ Slip flipped it for Eiht, or the way Ant Banks flipped it for Cube & Short is way doper, I'm not too fond of the chorus for example. Same thing for UGK's It's Supposed to Bubble, the way Pimp C sampled it and added banging kicks, and added a stunning piano solo at the very end make it that I prefer it over Passion's Thoughts of an Old Flame musical direction, although both the original songs are musically superior, it's just that I'm not fond of the evolution of the melody in those songs. Another example for me is the loop used on Jayo Felony's Sherm Stick, sampling Teddy Pendergrass's Come Go With Me. That loop is grimey as fuck, I love it, and I love that part in the original song, but the way it shifts after that and the melody teddy sings, I don't really like. the reason I love hip-hop is the ability to sample just a bit of a song to create something that can be totally different from the original and which in a way explores new possibilities about a melody that the original artist hadn't thought of or didn't feel like doing.

well they were doing songs with E40 and Mac Mall since the day they came out, they almost don't count in that regard.


uNLV and UGK both had a few g-funk songs but neither of them reached out to the west coast unti lthey were fully established


i'm not that up on 8ball and mjg but as someone who likes mac mall i knew he guested on their first LP if i'm not mistaken

you are mistaken, Mac Mall is featured on their 3rd album (or fourth if we're couting "listen to the lyrics"), Sittin' On Top of the World. They just did one songs with them though, most of that Suave House shit was in house, and sounded G-Funk to the fullest. South Circle, Mr Mike (some songs produced by E-A Ski), Space Age Pimpin' is one of the best G-Funk tracks ever.

UGK had G-Funk albums, listen to Super Tight, most of the songs sound G-Funk (meshed with UGK's own style) : Supposed to Bubble, Fedz in Town, Protect and Serve, Three Sixteens, Pussy Make Me Dizzy and that's already half of the album. And they reached out to West Coast artists early on in their careers, on Supertight (1994) alone, Pimp C shouts out WC (I Left It Wet For You) and Spice 1 (Fedz In Town), as well as DPG (on the radio version of It's Supposed to Bubble). In the back cover of Supertight, you can see a E-40 poster. Not to mention they were mentored by Too $hort and did a feature with him on It's Alright (Dangerous Ground soundtrack). On Ridin' Dirty, Pimp C shouts out B-Legit, Studio Ton (Murder), and on the outro, he shouts out a LOT of west coast cats like E-40, Too $hort, Goldy, Spice 1, DJ X-Tra Large & G-Nut (187 Fac), C-Bo (one of Pimp C's favorite rappers).
