YouTube announced that it has acquired the highly-anticipated music documentary G FUNK, which recounts the untold story of hip-hop’s most iconic subgenre through its pioneer, Warren G.
G FUNK explores the sound’s origination and lasting impact on music and culture. The film also chronicles Warren G’s journey with Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg during the early 90s, as they rose to international fame while he returned to Long Beach, California without a record deal. The G FUNK documentary will premiere exclusively on YouTube Premium on July 11, 2018.
“We are excited to partner with an iconic artist like Warren G to tell the story of the hip-hop music scene," said Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content, YouTube. "When you combine a genre that changed music forever with great storytelling, you get something authentic -- and that’s what fans will love about this film.”
“I really wanted people to experience the world of West Coast hip-hop seen through my eyes, and also how it helped inspire and evolve the current music of today,” said Warren G. “We all knew we were creating something dope but didn't realize it would have such a lasting effect on music indefinitely.”
Stay tuned for G FUNK to premiere on YouTube on July 11. For now, let us know if you're excited for it in the comments below.
