Warren G
Tuesday, July 12

By a twist of G-funk fate, Warren Griffin III was responsible for introducing the lion’s share of LBC’s talent to greater Los Angeles and beyond. After playing his tape of 213 — the stacked trio of Warren G and Doggs Snoop and Nate — at a bachelor party hosted by his stepbrother Dr. Dre, the good doctor invited the crew to take a hit of The Chronic. G never joined the powerhouse of Death Row, but he was there for some of G-funk’s finest moments, from his “OG gangsta glide” on “Indo Smoke” to the production of Tupac’s “Definition of a Thug Nigga.” Then, of course, there’s “Regulate,” a smoky street anthem so synonymous with the era that if you buy a six-four Impala off Craigslist, the seller is morally, if not legally, required to include a copy of the ’94 single along with the car’s title. $25, 7pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 13o5 E. Houston St.
