  • As rap stylings infiltrate pop music, genres dissolve and even traditional R&B becomes funked out with a gangsta twist. Dr. Dre's brother Warren G represents a new generation of jacked-up R&B. On REGULATE...G FUNK ERA, hard core street rhymes and scratch DJs vie for center stage with sing-songy hip hop (right on the borderline of pop balladry), colored with an airy West Coast mix of keyboards and bass.
  • Portraying their grim view of street life with aloof bravado, Warren G and Nate Dogg announce a new brand of stylin' with "This Is The Shack," a pleading reggae-scented groove, and "Regulate," in which a sweet R&B style of accompaniment confronts the gangstas on the dance floor.
  • While raunchy skits such as "Gangsta Sermon" and "'94 Ho Draft" bring the church and ESPN cheek to cheek with the boys' locker room, taut arrangements such as "Do You See" and "Recognize" depict adolescent rites of passage and day-to-day challenges of the street. Then just when you think you've got his G-Funk thang down, "What's Next" opens with a nursery rhyme, then launches into a bass-heavy new mix style, even as "And Ya Don't Stop" brings traditional blues elements to play inside a Latin-flavored groove.
