"Confession: I wasn't overly impressed with Dr. Dre's G Funk era"


  

          

For two reasons:

1. My dad was heavy into funk and I saw the songs as not huge transformations of tracks that I had been hearing for years. Its like how a lot of people felt with Diddy produced tracks with hits from the 80s.

2. Some of my favorite artists like De La Soul were sampling P Funk era tracks well before Dre.

I really really didn't put Dre on genius status until 2001 and after that.

Anyone else smell what I am saying?

Citing EPMD as G Funk is kinda lazy. They sampled P Funk and thats it
