And Others on his Universal Debut



Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Universal Records

    NEW YORK, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Records has signed
 multi-platinum rapper Warren G to a new exclusive recording agreement.  The
 Los Angeles-based artist, who first hit the scene in 1994 with the release of
 his debut album Regulate and its chart-topping title track, says his Universal
 debut will make a return to the melodic, West Coast production style (which he
 tagged "G-Funk") that first brought him success.  A bevy of talent
 -- including legendary funkster George Clinton, Warren's half-brother Dr. Dre,
 Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Nate Dogg, Butch Cassidy, Daz and Kurupt -- is lined up to
 guest on his Universal debut.  While the rapper will produce several of the
 album tracks, he is also enlisting Grammy-nominated producers Scott Storch
 (Dr. Dre, Eminem) and Jason "Jay E" Epperson (Nelly), Grammy-winning
 artist/producer Dr. Dre (Snoop Dogg, Eminem) and Battle Cat (Snoop Dogg, Mack
 10, Lucy Pearl) to contribute to the disc.
     Fans are familiar with Warren G not only as a chart-topping rapper, but
 also as an influential producer and artist who helped shape and define West
 Coast hip-hop.  Warren is credited with introducing his long-time friend Snoop
 Dogg to super-producer/rapper Dr. Dre, and with helping Dre form his seminal
 West Coast talent and production posse, The Dogg Pound.  An accomplished
 producer himself, Warren was the creative genius behind Mr. Grimm's mega-hit
 single "Indo Smoke," which appeared on the Poetic Justice soundtrack.  He also
 produced numerous 2Pac tracks including the hit "Definition Of A Thug" from
 the Above The Rim soundtrack.
     As an internationally-acclaimed and Grammy nominated recording artist,
 Warren G's discography includes three successful albums (1994's 4X platinum
 Regulate, 1997's 2x Platinum Take A Look Over Your Shoulder, and 1999's Gold I
 Want It All).  He has also made guest appearances on Dr. Dre's definitive disc
 The Chronic , Snoop Dogg's classic Doggy Style, and numerous soundtrack
 singles.
     Warren G has spent the last two years expanding his career and being
 active in and around the Los Angeles Community.  He has appeared in sitcom
 roles on TV's The Parenthood and Clueless, and he has stayed busy supporting
 community endeavors such as a proposed teen center in Long Beach, CA, and
 giving free performances and making guest appearances at community events.
