SXSW Panel: G-Funk With Warren G
Barbecue at G’s pad!
DAILY SXSW  March 16, 2017, by Thomas Fawcett
"...DJ, producer, and rapper Warren G is the central character of G-Funk, a SXSW documentary about the era of Nineties West Coast hip-hop that married gangsta rap with syrupy, synth-laden funk samples from the likes of Parliament-Funkadelic. While the film looks promising, its panel on Wednesday afternoon felt like a missed opportunity...."

The Urban Experience
Dâm-Funk's intergalactic jam
DAILY Music  March 16, 2010, by Thomas Fawcett
"...I try to focus on beautiful chords while still trying to keep the street vibe on the bottom. It’s kind of related to G-funk but without the whole gangsterism on top of it..."

Fun Fun Fun Fest Live Shot: Snoop Dogg
More canine than lion and Doggfather still
DAILY Music  November 9, 2013, by Thomas Fawcett
"...With Uncle Snoop now BFFs with everyone from Willie Nelson to Buzz Aldrin, it’s easy to forget that America’s cuddliest canine was once a menace to society. On Friday night, the FFF crowd was happy to simply bask in the Doggfather’s hazy G-funk aura...."

Entroducing... Applied Pressure
ATX crew celebrates three years with a live ode to DJ Shadow
DAILY Music  April 11, 2014, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Think back to 1996. Remember G-funk and East Coast gangsta rap, 2Pac’s All Eyez on Me and Ghostface’s Ironman? UGK’s Ridin’ Dirty, the debut from Xzibit (At the Speed of Life), and a third disc from Mobb Deep (Hell on Earth)?..."

Record Reviews
Ibrahim Ferrer
Music Review  June 10, 1999
"...And with all due respect to Master P, he did it by goin' back to Cali. Snoop's understated, sinewy flow was always better suited to the boundless bottom and reconstituted soul of West Coast G-Funk than the No Limit label's signature bluster & bounce anyway..."

DAILY SXSW  January 31, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...G-Funk D: Karam Gill G-Funk is the untold story of three childhood friends from East Long Beach who helped commercialize hip hop by developing a sophisticated and melodic new approach - merging Gangsta Rap with elements of Motown, Funk, and R&B. (World Premiere)..."

Tuxedo
Music Review  March 19, 2015, by Thomas Fawcett
"...Nearly every track will fill a dance floor – club or wedding – even if this isn't an LP bearing repeated spins at the cut. "Number One" is a brilliant bit of reverse sample jiu-jitsu, the hypothetical source track for Snoop Dogg's "Ain't No Fun (If the Homies Can't Have None)" and a PG version of the bawdy G-funk classic..."

Still a Good Day
Ice Cube's coexisting Gs: gangsta rap and G-rated
Music Story  March 14, 2008, by Thomas Fawcett
"...Released the following year, The Predator was the first album ever to debut at No. 1 on both the pop and R&B Billboard charts, a fact made all the more improbable because, with the exception of the lighter G-funk classic "It Was a Good Day," it's an album-length explosion of rage about the 1991 L.A..."

Original Gangstas: Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, and the Birth of West Coast Rap
Music Story  June 15, 2017, by Kahron Spearman
"...take up most of the ink, Westhoff ensures that critical figures – former Ruthless co-head Jerry Heller and Suge Knight, specifically – are documented through links previously unmade. Even knowledgeable hip-hop scholars will come across abundant "aha" moments, such as oft-forgotten early Ruthless Records signee Above the Law's 1993 album Black Mafia Life being the original G-funk record – not Dr..."

Playback: Starf**king SXSW
SXSW’s bubble burst? Sure, okay – if you say so. Leave the starfucking to us, then.
Music Column  March 16, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...Club across the street at Barracuda. Unannounced appearances by veteran rappers multiplied at every turn, including Ja Rule riling up a huge crowd at Cedar Street, Warren G regulating the world premiere of a SXSW G-Funk doc, and GZA delivering an intimate afternoon set at Whisler's on Sunday..."

Sound on Sound Review: Thundercat
South Los Angeles Renaissance jazz oddity cuts loose
DAILY Music  November 5, 2016, by Alejandra Ramirez
"...“Oh, Sheit It’s X” peered into the future as his bass was equal parts robotic vomit and g-funk electronics channeling George Clinton’s charisma and Bootsy Collins’ bombast. Bruner shines with an eccentric virtuosity indebted to the history of Miles Davis and John Coltrane, but he sheds birth of the cool pretentiousness thanks to the quirky space oddity that flies his freak flag...."

"...From an indecipherable Richard "Dimples" Fields sample, Dr. Dre builds a pungent G-Funk groove tapered to the nuances of Snoop's flow..."

Paris
Beat Box
Music Review  October 31, 2003, by Robert Gabriel
"...As "What Would You Do?" characterizes the 9/11 catastrophe as an inside job used to coerce us into giving up our civil liberties, "Evil" pinpoints distinct facets of institutional racism such as under-funded schools and the disproportionate enforcement of drug laws. Emphatic in his stance against injustice, Paris recruits the lyrical aid of Public Enemy, Dead Prez, Capleton, and Kam in order to "hold court in the streets 'til these pigs comply." With classic G-funk sensibilities guiding its head-on course, Sonic Jihad encapsulates an entire decade of firebrand rap..."

SXSW Keynote: Snoop Dogg
D-O-double-G Keynizzle
DAILY Music  March 21, 2015, by Thomas Fawcett
"...It’s been more than 20 years since Snoop first barked onto the scene with G-funk classic Doggystyle, but Uncle Snoop continues to reinvent and remains as relevant as ever...."
