Warren G: Regulate… G Funk Era (Violator/RAL)

Eric Weisbard, Spin, September 1994

THE THING that gets me about 
Nate Dogg and Warren G.'s 'Regulate' is how, when MTV airs the video, you hear Nate Dogg sing the line "Nate Dogg is about to make some bodies turn…" — and then nothing. The offensive word our nation's video channel needs to blank out? Cold. Ooh, now that's pretty shocking.
