Warren Griffin III

(born November 10, 1970), better known by his stage name, Warren G, is an American west coast rapper and hip hop producer. He is best known for his debut 1994 single, “Regulate“, which reached number 2 in the U.S. and charted worldwide.  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 area code in Long Beach, California was later changed to 562). While practicing with 213, and working a full-time job, the young Warren used all his free time creating his own sound and aspired to make it big.  The trio 213 dissolved when two of its members signed with Death Row Records. In 2009, he released his sixth studio album titled The G Files. After the death of Nate Dogg in March 2011, Warren G released the song “This Is Dedicated Too You” to honor his childhood friend and close musical collaborator. The song received positive reviews and continues to perform well. To honor Nate Dogg’s life and work, all proceeds from the sale of this song went directly to Nate Dogg’s mother, family, and charity organization. Although deeply affected by Nate Dogg’s death Warren G has carried on as a solo artist, working on multiple projects, and he has made multiple public appearances to promote various charities and musical venues. Overall, Warren G has sold eight to ten million records. From June to September 2013, Warren G accompanied Baby BashBone Thugs-N-HarmonyDJ QuikE-40Mack 10Suga FreeTha Dogg Pound, and others on the West Coast Fest tour.
