’90s hip-hop is on its way to Victoria — Southern California native Warren G is set to perform at the Upstairs Cabaret on Saturday, July 29.
In the early 1990s, Warren G was a member of the Long Beach, California hip hop trio 213.
The group also featured Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg. After the solo success of the former with Death Row Records, the latter and Warren G appeared on the 1993 single “Indo Smoke” by Mista Grimm which was featured on the Poetic Justice soundtrack.
The two followed this up in 1994 with their own single, the smash hit “Regulate” which appeared on the Above the Rim soundtrack.
The track was later featured on Warren G’s solo debut album, Regulate… G Funk Era, which, due to the success of “Regulate,” debuted at #2 on the US Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and went on to sell over 3 million copies.
Over the years, G has sold over eight million records.
Tickets begin at $30 and are available online, or at Lyles Place.
