Who coined the term g-funk?  Warren g?  If so then his sound is g funk. Everyone else just sounds like g funk.

Agreed. But as I said I said If it was simply the sound and sampling George Clinton and Zapp Eric Sermon was pretty much one of if not the first to do it the most. I don't Consider Tha Twinz gangsta rap but I do consider them G-Funk. But these opinions could go on for ever.

I believe he was the first to coin and say the phrase G-Funk on a G-Funk track that was recorded before The Chronic but came out after The Chronic.

a lot of songs don't have the smooth and refined sound of "heyday" G-Funk (for instance Conversation) and have a more rugged sound which relies heavily on breakbeats

This is more or less how I distinguish between the Compton sound and the Long Beach sound.  I mean, there was the overall umbrella term "G-Funk," but there were different types of subgenres within G-Funk, and the sound that came out of Long Beach (epitomized most prominently by Warren G) is quite different from Dre and Quik's sound at the time, imo, (which was harder, less smooth), which was altogether different still from the sound emanating from the Bay (e.g. Spice 1, e-40).

your argument fits nicely into mine actually. I agree with you about the various subgenres and the smoother type of G-FUnk coming from Long Beach. but that type of smooth G-Funk emerged a little bit later on, and that's what I refer by "heyday G-Funk". Quik Is the Name had a more rugged sound as well but Quik's style evolved with the time and became smoother and more refined, relying more on live instrumentations (and borrowing from other genres like jazz, reggae, etc.). so we see it's not only Compton VS Long Beach.

^Bay area's style was called "mobb muzik". Spice-1 Amerikkka's Nightmare had a cpl G-Funk sounding tracks on it.

G-Funk goes beyond just sampling or sounding like George Clinton or Zapp.

If you guy's consider that only "G-Funk" tip your hats off to
Eric Sermon/EPMD because he was pretty much the first to go all out doing it.

It goes definitely beyond that, it's how it's sampled and a greater emphasis on production. the mixing is different too. and as Scitt said, the overall themes. but Erick Sermon later produced music that can be considered G-Funk and was one of the main east coast artists to be featured on and collaborate on a regular basis with west coast acts (Kam, Ice Cube, Too $hort, Quik, Xzibit, etc.)

as for Mobb Music,  i'd say it's a cousin genre. similar inspirations (artists sampled or interpolated), similar vibes, similar melodic approach but different techniques, drums and sounds. but as I said, a lot of similarities too (use of live musicians). there's many subgenres within what became known as mobb music, too. the local scenes (Richmond, EPA, Vallejo, Oakland) had distinct sounds from one another. and on many albums you had typical G-Funk sounding songs (for example Something to Ride To or the Hidden Track on Sean T's Pimp Lyrics & Dollar Signs, Another Funky Verse on D-Moe's first album, Ain't No Love on 1990-Sick, Peace to My Nine on Spice One etc.). and you got songs that have both a G-Funk & Mob sound (Dubee's My Thang).

You got that Sean T Hidden Track?! I love that album but haven't ever heard of that track.

Overall, ridiculous OP but a lot of great replies here. G funk is actually more diverse than many people give it credit for, and often you see that diversity on the same album. Perhaps my favorite example of this is on Dogg Food, which features one of the hardest beats that samples Knee Deep in "Respect." (up there with Pac's "U Can't See Me"). And yet it also features the summertime party classic Let's Play House, which is sampled from a nursery rhyme. That's gangsta funk too  8)

I don't have any mp3 of the song, but here's a youtube link.

I guess the op is right. The way he spelled it (The Cbronic) because the album doesn't exist. So there is no funk on there, G or otherwise. By the way of you're gonna start a troll thread with blasphemous statements towards one of the greatest albums in music, get the title right bruh.
