After a disappointing sophomore album that failed to cement his superstar status, Warren G returned to what made him famous — his production skills — and for the most part, left the rapping to his many guests. For listeners who haven't kept up with the rapper/producer since his 1994 chart run, I Want It All will sound completely familiar. It's an album of impeccably produced deep-groove G-funk, with tight harmonies anchoring the choruses of highlights like "Gangsta Love" (featuring Kurupt, Nate Dogg, and RBX), "I Want It All" (featuring Mack 10), "You Never Know" (featuring Snoop Dogg, Phats Bossi, and Reel Tight), and "We Got That" (featuring Eve, Drag-On, and Shadow). While scads of guest shots are the norm on hip-hop albums and often grow tiresome, most all of them work on I Want It All simply because Warren G is, above all, a great producer. He knows how to team rappers together and he knows which types of productions best emphasize their delivery talents. Though I Want It All occasionally skirts the borders of hip-hop lite, it's chocked with quality mid-tempo productions and excellent rapping.
West Coast classic
This is by far my favorite Warren G album. The beats are simply amazing-they are a mix of g-funk, with incredible rhythms and great instruments. Warren really shows us why he shines as a producer on this album. The featured guests on this album are top notch, adding to the lyrical value of the album as well. Some of these artists include Kurupt, Daz, Nate, Snoop, RBX, Mack 10, Slick Rick, El Debarge, and more. If you like the west coast sound, and haven't picked up this album, do so. You will NOT be disappointed.
He is the man, and this album is pure creativity, Warren G has it all, "Gangsta Love" "Why On Why" "Dope Beat" "If We Give You A Chance" are my favorites..
Sweeeeet Album, Finally!!!!!!
I've been a Warren G fan since day one of his music, But he was strugguling there for a while. But now FINALLY he's back this album is sweet, a good mix of some new music but with his old Warren G sound. Deffinatley worth the $. Love it!!!! Becki B.
