(AllHipHop News) If a list was being compiled of rappers that helped push West Coast Hip Hop to the forefront it would surely include Warren G. The Long Beach, California native was a central figure in the West’s rise to prominence in the 1990’s with hits like “Regulate” and “This D.J.”
The veteran emcee/producer is now questioning why his contributions to Cali rap was not enough to earn him a slot on the upcoming “How The West Was Won” concert in Irvine.
While it appears Warren was left off the bill, the event has booked other acts from the area including Snoop Dogg, The Game, E-40, Xzibit, DJ Quik, Glasses Malone, Tha Eastsidaz, Too Short, Problem, and Suga Free.
Warren G took to social media to point out that he was not invited to participate in the celebration of West Coast Hip Hop. He sent out a Tweet addressing the issue and posted a picture on Instagram with the caption, “Wow I was just informed that I’m not apart of the how the west was won Los Angeles. That’s the thanks I get I guess for changing the game but it is what it is this still G Funk.”
