On this episode of The Perfect Podcast Nate Zablan, host of The Tone Podcast, joins me to discuss A Perfect G-Funk Song. He chooses "Let Me Ride" - the third single from Dr. Dre’s seminal album The Chronic. Nate share his passion for the song and discuss why "Let Me Ride" is emblematic of the very best of G-Funk. We also discuss: How the political and social climate of 1990s Los Angeles helped produce G-Funk The genius of the Parliament Funkadelic samples used in the song. The classic tension between West Coast based G-Funk and the East Coast based native tongues movement in the 90’s. Nate's personal connection to hip hop culture. Back in the day I was strictly East Coast - but Nate’s passion for and knowledge of West Coast G-Funk has given me an appreciation of Dre. Dre’s music I’ve never had before."Let Me Ride" is a song everyone needs to revisit - or for some - listen to for the very first time. Listen to my conversation with Nate to help you appreciate the musicality and social relevance of this incredible song.
