There was something special brewing in Los Angeles around the tail end of the 1980s. In the wake of N.W.A.’s classic Straight Outta Compton album, young creatives began stretching and reshaping hip-hop samples, in the process creating a subgenre called G-Funk (or gangsta funk). This story about the birth and ascent of G-Funk—which helped catapult the careers of artists like Snoop DoggNate Dogg, Dr. Dre and his stepbrother, Warren G—is told in the new YouTube Originals documentary, G Funk.
