Warren G has announced that he is releasing his first project in six years, an EP titled Regulate…G Funk Era Part II, according to Billboard. The project is due out Aug. 6th and will serve as the sequel to his 1994 debut album, Regulate…G Funk Era. The project will also feature unreleased vocals from the late Nate Dogg.
“[Fans] will be able to hear unreleased songs with me and Nate,” he said. “They have been asking for years; ever since he passed away and even before he passed away, they wanted music from me and him…It was a lot to work on records with one of your buddies, one of your best friends who’s not with you anymore.”
Too $hort, Bun B, Young Jeezy and Bun B are expected to be make guest appearances as well. “[They’re] artists that me and Nate loved and wanted to work with,” Warren G said about the collaborations.
He also said that he is excited to “let people hear a lot of that sound that has been missing [in] hip-hop” with this next release.
“I finally have records that I had in the archives that I put together to let the world hear some of that G Funk that they’ve been missing and wanting to hear for long time.”
The first single, which does not have a release date yet, for Part II will be “My House” featuring Nate Dogg.
