AllHipHop's Rea Davis caught up with Warren G to discuss what he missed most about 90's Hip Hop, new music, his new movie, and more.

On being a part of 90's Hip Hop:

"[It] feels good and to have a record that's still in heavy rotation today feels even better. It let me know all the hard work that I was doing paid off," said Warren.

What he missed most about the era:

"Me and Nate Dogg in the studio doing studio sessions, and just how cool it was. It was like the 'School Daze' era the 'Love & Basketball' era. It was cool. I miss that," he said.

Warren also revealed that he was most excited to see Mariah Carey be honored, and he's still producing and putting out new music, as well as gearing up for the release of his new movie, 'G-Funk'.
