Hip hop heads are rejoicing as the regulator is coming back to the game. Warren G announced via Instagram plans to release a sequel to his classic Regulate…G Funk Era. He spoke more on the project with Billboard.
According to Billboard the Part II EP is set to be released tentatively on Aug. 6 and will feature unreleased material from Nate Dogg. Speaking on with his late friend, he said, “It was a lot to work on records with one of your buddies, one of your best friends who’s not with you anymore.” However the new project will feature collaborations with some more recent artists. “Guys that I respect a lot in the music business came aboard and collaborated with me on some tracks,” he told Billboard. “Artists like E-40, Too $hort, Young Jeezy, Bun B are vets of hip-hop. [They’re] artists that me and Nate loved and wanted to work with.”
Warren G felt he has a chance to get people aquainted once again with the G Funk sound he’s known to utilize. “I feel real good that I am getting the chance to let people hear a lot of that sound that has been missing [in] hip-hop,” he said. “I finally have records that I had in the archives that I put together to let the world hear some of that G Funk that they’ve been missing and wanting to hear for long time.”
The rapper’s first single off the project will be “My House” featuring Nate Dogg.
