ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This version of the album actually features 3 bonus tracks that you will NOT find on iTunes! The reason for it is that fact that I would like to not only cater to the fans that are mainly overseas and still enjoy buying things such as vinyl records and CD's, but also give fans a reason to support the record shops also.
The first person to feature on the album was Eazy-E's son, Baby Eazy-E aka Eazy-E3. We usually get together to do a Eazy-E Birthday Celebration that is filled with performances from artists both independent and from Ruthless Records. It was funny because I had three verses and the beat I had produced but I had NO idea what to do for a hook so I talked to Eazy-E3 and he asked me "Whats the name of the song?". I honestly didn't have a title. I usually worry about titles last when I have the whole thing put together. I told Eazy, "I'll let you name it". Once we got the hook in place, the song was called "Real G'z".
After that there was Wanz. He is a really cool person to meet and hang out with. Very laid back but you can feel a great positive energy just being in his precense. When I first heard him he was doing the hook on Macklemore's song "Thrift Shop". I never thought in a million years that I would get to meet him or have him on any record that I put out. I was working with a lowrider magazine at the time called "Swindol Lifestyle Magazine" which is why I found out why my music did great overseas.... Japan has a BIGGER lowrider scene than the USA and when you have lowriders you have G-Funk music. Wanz had just released a single with Warren G called "To Nate Dogg" and oneday I got to talk to him on instagram and he asked me if it was possible that I can come down to Long Beach and get some lowriders together. I immediately called Tony at "Swindol Lifestyle". He rounded up the cars and the next thing I knew I was at King Park in Long Beach doing a cameo appearance in the music video.
The next artist to feature was Yung Muusik. He really wanted to work on a project with me from a while back and it never happened. I used to be his DJ when he would do RnB events. I loved the way he sounded but I needed something that was right up his alley but still stayed true to my west coast sound. One night I was out playing some beats that I produced and we are around all the guys and the homegirls and the homegirls mainly like whatever is on the radio today so you can imagine I didn't get much love from them when I step in with the G'd up sound, lol. They heard the beat for "Tell me what cha thinkin'" which to me sounded more like some DJ Quik or DJ Battlecat because of the bass patch that I used to produce it with. The ladies immediatly said, "Dre, I know your into your G-Funk but this sounds like it's got a slight RnB twist, like something that can hit the radio and be just for the ladies, but don't make it vulgar". When she said don't make it vulgar the first thought was I was gonna laugh, but sometimes when a woman tells you something you just gotta listen lol. So I called Yung Muusik and the track became another favorite on the album.
Iceberg was the final person to feature on the album. We were going through the final beats that I had produced and put aside for the album and the one that became "On tha block" was just something I couldn't leave alone. We ended up with a concept, I went and wrote 2 verses. He wrote a verses and a hook which I did not hear until the day before the album was finalized! It became an instant favorite which I do hope to shoot a music video for as well as a video for the one with Yung Muusik.
During the making of this record, I actually paused for a bit to start making a G-Funk producer add-on for the program "Propellerhead Reason". It was going to just be my secret stash but I decided that I wanted a Moog synthesizer since Dr. Dre had produced almost the entire Chronic album with a MiniMoog. Plus, Bernie Worrell of Parliament / Funkadelic used the MiniMOOG model D and we all know that The Chronic album would have never happened without Parliament / Funkadelic. I ended up with the Moog and made all these west coast sounds on it and then I remembered what it was like when I first started producing beats and the sounds weren't really out there to make the type of beats I wanted. I ended up taking 8 months to complete a complete Reason Refill with G-Funk drums, synths, etc. with everything being completely playable and that lead to me starting VindictiveSoundLabs.com After the 8 months was over I had already gotten back on the album.
I had also managed to get a e-juice / Vape Juice line through Grand Vapors (GrandVapors.com) and I am currently working on the clothing line G-Threadz Clothing Co.™ set to launch by summer 2017!
