Happy Sunday Darlings,
This weeks song is by Warren G and Nate Dogg. It relied heavily on the four bar sample of Michael McDonald's 'I Keep Forgettin', and peaked at number 2 on the Bilboard Hot 100 in 1994. It also enjoyed success in the UK, reaching number 5 in the charts.
The song appears on the film soundtrack for 'Over the Rim' and is largely heralded as the catalyst for the G funk genre of music' a hybrid between 'gangsta rap' and funk.
Of course I'm also pretty partial to a touch of Michael McDonald, so I have also included the this video too. This featured on his debut album 'If that's what it takes'.
Have a relaxing evening everyone,
