Rap Recall Friday

Another one of those songs I barely remember, but my sister very likely knows all the words.

"Regulate"
- Warren G and Nate Dogg

As with most rap that actually stands the test of time, the video is pretty good. Slight Boyz in the Hood vibe, probably purposely, but we never see anyone get shot (for MTV-friendliness). The girls are even reasonably dressed, even if they are going straight to the Eastside Motel. That said, it's amazing at how fast we go from gang violence to picking up skirts in literally one verse. No digs; just put it on and nod yo' head in a un-whitiest way possible.

(Also, since the song was on the Above the Rim soundtrack, the video tie-in has lots of basketball and bonus Tupac sightings. 'PAAAAC!!)
