 G-funk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
G-funk (Gangsta-funk or Ghetto-funk) is a type of hip hop music that emerged from West Coast gangsta rap in the early 1990s.
G-funk (largely derived from slowing the tempo down of funk music) incorporates multi-layered and melodic synthesizers, slow hypnotic grooves, a deep bass, background female vocals, the extensive sampling of P-funk tunes, and a high portamento sine wave keyboard lead —a feature that became the genre’s notable trademark.
This genre was characterized by a predictable and rather hedonistic subject matter (typically violence, sex, and endless drug-use) and a slurred “lazy drawl” that sacrificed lyrical complexity for clarity and rhythmic cadence.
