Fujiko from Lexington, KyGangsta Rap has been around since the mid-80s. Just listen to Schoolly D, Ice-T, and, of course, NWA. What Dre did on The Chronic is invent G-Funk--a form of gangsta rap that mixes in those fat Funk beats, pop hooks, and the hard reality of street life.
Bertrand from Paris, FranceThis single and the album it came from, Dr. Dre's [b) Chronic [b], took hip hop down an entirely new road that would eventually be called Gangsta Rap. "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang" features Dre's protege Snoop Doggy Dogg who would soon become a star on his own. Fat, Parliament-style funky beats, laidback rap vocals, words reflecting the violence of life on the street, and pop hooks combined for a tremendously successful new sound.
Rodney from Charleston, WvI used to think it said "Like this and like that Anna", then I came to like the song for what it is. (by the way, I'm 50 yrs old)
Barry from Greenville, NcThis song samples Leon Haywood's "I Want'a Do Something Freaky To You," which peaked at #15 on the pop charts in late 1975.
John from Cape Coral, FlThis son is awesome. Cant wait for detox itll put 2days rap 2 shame. They REALLY need 2 put some NWA songfacts on here they were as controversial and thought provoking as anything else.
Matthew from East Brunswick, NjGreat rap song. Hate to say it, but this is one of rarities of the trash that's out there now.
John Lennon wrote "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" about Richard Cooke, a hunter he met at the Maharishi's camp in India. Cooke hasn't shot anything since the camp, except with his camera - he became a freelance photographer for National Geographic.
