This is like a no-duh for today considering I just put out a bunch of posts from my interview with Warren G. Who knew that we’d all be chillin’ out to a song that felt a bit like your parents would enjoy but was still cool enough for you. G-Funk.
Released in 1994 where it peaked at #2 on the Billboard charts, “Regulate” takes me back to college days when dating my boyfriend (now husband). I thought he was so cool because he had a car with air conditioning. See, you youngins won’t ever have that moment. You probably don’t know anything about rolling down your windows by hand (although, maybe you do, recently had a cheap rental with no power windows) I’m sure air conditioning is probably standard these days. My boyfriend, that guy I married 12 years ago this coming Sunday was infamous for his bootleg tapes, and this was one of them. At the time, I would complain when he put this song in the cassette deck, but now it makes me smile, nod my head, move my shoulders, and hold my fingers out like I’m smoking an imaginary joint. LOL! I love how our minds capture memories.
We regulate any stealing of his property
And we damn good too
But you cant be any geek off the street,
Gotta be handy with the steel if you know what I mean, earn your keep!
Regulators!!! mount up!
Enjoy this week’s Throwback Friday post “Regulate” by Warren G featuring Nate Dogg.
