Various Artists Chronicles: The Roots Of G-Funk
- Words: Daniel Siwek
- Label: Koch
Maybe the reason why Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic "stank" so good was because there was some real soul behind the flow. There are priceless gems all over the G-Funk map, from Wilson Pickett‘s "Engine Number Nine" (as the inspiration for "Straight Outta Compton") to Leon Haywood‘s "I Want‘a Do Something Freaky To You" (the blueprint for "Ain‘t Nuttin But a G Thang"). You best believe the original Afronaut, George Clinton, visits as the architect of "Let Me Ride," but even if you don‘t listen to hip-hop this collection can stand on its own as a testament to ‘70s stoned funk.
