Warren G

Warren G (born Warren Griffin III, November 10, 1970), is an American West Coast rapper and hip hop producer. Warren G grew up in Long Beach, California listening to his parents’ collection of jazz, funk and soul; nurturing a deep love for music. In 1990, he formed the group 213, named after the Long Beach area code, with his friends Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg. The current area code in Long Beach, California is 562. While practicing with “213,” and working a full-time job, the young Warren used all his free time on creating his own sound and aspired to make it big. The trio “213” dissolved when two of its members signed with Death Row Records.

Throughout his early solo career, Warren G worked with artists like MC Breed and 2Pac, but his big break came when his vocal collaboration with Mista Grimm, on "Indo Smoke", appeared on the Poetic Justice soundtrack in 1992. His outstanding rap lead to a serious collaboration with Dr. Dre. Dedicated to hard work, that same year, Warren G made major
