Short for 'Ghetto', or 'Gangsta' Funk, this has been mistaken as the work of Dr. Dre. However, one must understand this type of laid back, funky, highly synthesized and heavily sample driven sound originated from Cold187um of Above the Law. His ideas and theories were used by Dr. Dre for his Deathrow debut (The Chronic) after much of the Ruthless camp has switched to Deathrow. Also take note that Warren G and Snoop were with Cold187um before they were 'discovered' by Dr. Dre. Much of the mainstream media is to blame as Dr. Dre gave no credit and is also believed to have black listed Cold187 from getting proper exposure.more...
The first G Funk single in fact was 'Call It What U Want'. Off of Above the Law's 'Black Mafia Life' LP, this track featured Tupac and Money B. They clearly defined the sound by the term G Funk, which was not mentioned at all on The Chronic but both albums are G Funk nonetheless.
There is still much debate continuing as to the originators of G Funk. The main arguement in Dr. Dre's favor is that 'The Chronic' was released several months before 'Black Mafia Life'. This is true, however most albums are subject to considerable delay, which was the case with 'Black Mafia Life'. It is widely unknown that Cold187 and Dr. Dre spent much time together in the studio before Ruthless had divided. 187 has clearly spoken on the outright reluctance of Dr. Dre to give credit where credit is due. One must simply consider the large scale lawsuits of unlisted samples an...
A person that talks about the hood, but would be scared if they went to the hood. Usually a rapper.
Lil Wayne is not a blood, but it made him some money. He's a wealthy studio gangster.
Fake G's that pretend to be from the streets by rapping about it.

sex position where the receiving partner bends over and holds onto the round base of a Fender guitar stool while the penetrator stands behind. great for hitting the g-spot if you're a short girl with a tall partner.
I was so glad my recording studio is soundproof; she's a screamer whenever we do the Fender Bender.
"Original Gangsta Disease":
1) A condition that causes sufferers who "were there" when cool shit went down back in the day to lord said presence at cool shit over the younger generations and consequently downplay the cultural/political contributions of contemporary writers/thinkers/musicians/artists etc.
2) A mental disorder common to aging hipsters who specifically view newer music as entirely derivative and without merit due to its youth.
3) The old (established) being jealous of the young (new). This is often disguised as wisdom.
4) A complex of symptoms known collectively as "'I Was There' Syndrome"
5) The desire to have been associated with a defining cultural moment.
6) The inflation of personal involvement in said defining cultural moment.
Bernice: How pathetic. How quaint. You think that what you are listening to is authentic psychedelic garage rock? I was there when the 13th Floor Elevators invented both terms single-handedly... Roky Erickson played harp in my band (whose legendary, impossibly obscure EP introduced "tripping balls" into the popular lexicon).....this was back when rock music was real. Back when there were still unexplored territories to be claimed. Back when Lou Reed was still with The Shades.
Thomas: Listen biddy, get your O.G.D. checked out immediately. You dumb bitch.
Lawrence is once again droning on about the master tapes for a lost 1967 Monks sophomore LP that were destroyed when his German meth lab/recording studio went up in flames. What a douche.

"Paul who? Man, ain't nobody paying them dudes no attention, man. You know what studio gangster is? Look up that; look up the definition of studio gangster. I'm here to play basketball. First of all, I don't tweet. So I wouldn't know what he tweeted if you guys didn't tell me." - Udonis Haslem
