[SOHH highlights a hot record each week and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After David Banner gave in-depth look at his "Malcolm X" record, rap veteran Warren G breaks down his new "Party We Will Throw Now" anthem.]
This is a record that I had which me and Nate Dogg had did. I just wanted to set it off for my homeboy, letting people know that Nate Dogg is still here and his music is going to live through me.
I knew I wanted a younger cat on the record with me just to show that we got unity with the younger artists also. So I asked Game to get on it and he was down. I texted him the other day and I told him, "Yo Game, we got us one."
This is a big record right here. "Party Will Throw Now" is really huge especially out here in Los Angeles. It's getting blown up out here. I have to give a big shout-out to Power 106 because that's like our main station and they've been going ham.
This is the first Nate Dogg that's been heard in a long time that's him. It's been a long time and the home front has been playing it. I've been getting calls from all over about the record saying it's a real dope record and it's going to make a lot of noise.
It's out on iTunes but I knew it'd go all over the Internet. People like to get it and put it on the website. I'm still blasting the iTunes link out to let people know they can go and support it. It's in stores. You have to remember this is a job for us too.
We have to survive and I'm not taking advantage of anybody, but it is on iTunes.
Warren G exploded out of the burgeoning Long Beach rap scene in 1994 with the smash single "Regulate," a duet with longtime friend Nate Dogg, and its accompanying album, Regulate...G Funk Era. G grew up in Long Beach listening to his parents' extensive collection of jazz, soul and funk records, also frequently hanging out at the local V.I.P. record store. As a teenager, he and his friends Nate Dogg and future superstar Snoop Dogg formed a rap group called 213, after their area code.
