G-funk

G-funk is a type of hip hop music that emerged from West Coast gangsta rap in the early 1990s. The accepted progenitor of the sound is Dr. Dre, whose 1992 (see 1992 in music) album The Chronic invented and name the sound, a slow, stoned P-funk inspired genre characterized by groovy bass lines and synthesizers. After Dr. Dre's success, G-funk became the dominant sound in hip hop for several years, with Death Row Records[?] artists like Snoop Doggy Dogg and Warren G crossing over to the mainstream.
