YouTube has announced that it acquired the new documentary, the G-Funk: The untold Story of Warren G and How Hip-Hop's Most Iconic Sub-Genre that Came To Be. The film tells the story of how the sub-genre rose to fame in the decade of the '90s through various accounts of its pioneers.
With never-before-seen footage and interviews with Warren G, Snoop Dogg, Chuck D, Ice Cube, Ice T, Too Short, D. O. C., Wiz Khalifa and others, the G-Funk dives in Warren G's history and the history of G-Funk's impact on pop culture.
"Actually, I wanted people to experience the world of West Coast Hip Hop as seen through my eyes, and also how it helped to inspire and evolve the current music of today," Warren G said in a press release. "We all knew that we were creating something of the drug, but did not realize that it would have a lasting effect on the music indefinitely."
