Hip-hop pioneer and the creator of the West Coast G-Funk sound, Warren G, continues to push his former label, Def Jam, to return his master recordings. 

On Thursday, Warren posted via Instagram, “that it’s only right,” that Def Jam returns him his masters. “I hate when shit gets blown out of proportion,” Warren says. “I got love for Def Jam; all I was saying is that it’s only right that my masters be returned to me, after all, I did for the label, that’s it. It’s other catalogs 10x bigger than mine they can continue to have. It’s been almost 30 years.”

In 1994 Def Jam was drowning in debt and possibly on the verge of closing their doors for good until Warren G dropped his debut album, “Regulate… G Funk Era.” The album’s success is attributed to Def Jam’s comeback. The album debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, selling 176,000 its first week. G Funk went on to become certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America after selling 3-million copies. 

Def Jam, being an iconic staple in the formation of the hip-hop culture has yet to speak publicly on Warren G. Still, it’s a rather disappointing situation that Warren G is going through so many years later, let’s just hope in the end, Def Jam does right by Warren G.
