the jive rap artists all fucked with each other and supported eachother they had a nice lil inhouse thing going on until they switched to boy bands....so many legendary albums came out on jive music


that goes only for southwest artists though. cause Jive had legendary artists like ATCQ and they weren't networking too much. but yeah Jive is a legendary label. they were kinda shady though (ask ATCQ and UGK lol), but then again, what label wasn't shady in the 90's ?

doesn't matter, that album was the beginning..shit helped pioneer g-funk and that was when dre first developed that sound (or co-developed, depending on how u look at it)...i remember the ol school poster mellowman once argued that it was basically the album which introduced rap to g-funk. duno if i'd go that far, but it's definitely in essential.

that could be part of it, but if u listen to"efil4zaggin", it has a lot of that signature "chronic" sound.....it's where dre really started developing that style.

but it certainly is an essential rap album.

so are you saying 2pac started G Funk because he was the first to ever mention the term "G funk" on record in 1992?

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.

 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.
This song also samples Come Go With Me, check it out. (The chorus makes reference to the sample and it's produced by DJ BattleCat.)
