Bringing a smooth, crisp sound, Warren G released his debut album “Regulate…G Funk Era” in 1994. The album went triple platinum selling over 4.5 million records. The hit single “Regulate” from the album was certified platinum and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, making both the album and single instant classics.
“This D.J.,” a remake of “I Shot the Sheriff,” is another one of Warren G’s many classics. He has also been associated with the likes of The Dogg Pound, The Dove Shack, Cedric Ceballos, Twinz and Reel Tight.
