YouTube has announced it acquired the rights to a new documentary, G-Funk: The Untold Story of Warren G and How Hip-Hop’s Most Iconic Sub-Genre Came To Be. The film tells the story of how G-Funk rose to prominence in the early ’90s with various pioneers talking about it.
The documentary will feature never-before-seen footage and interviews with Warren G, Snoop Dogg, Chuck D, Ice Cube, Ice T, Too Short, The D.O.C. and others. G-Funk dives into Warren G’s life and the impact his sound had on pop culture.
“I really wanted people to experience the world of West Coast Hip Hop seen through my eyes, and also how it helped inspire and evolve the current music of today,” Warren G said. “We all knew we were creating something dope but didn’t realize it would have such a lasting effect on music indefinitely.”
G-Funk is expected to premiere on July 22.
