Set to premiere Wednesday night as a YouTube original is G-Funk, a documentary produced by one of the sub-genre’s pioneers, Warren G. Starring Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, and Ice-T, the film will chronicle the coming of the genre and detail its impact throughout overall American music culture. Of course, what is a G-funk tale without the grand contributions of Nate Dogg? The late G-Funk singer is certainly featured in the film, in what appears to be in respective citing, according to the trailer.
Gossip Instablog The Shaderoom reported that last night, Dogg’s son Niajel Hale took to Instagram and went on a chilling vent accusing Snoop Dogg and Warren G of not inviting the family of his late father to the documentary’s premiere.
Through slides of texted Insta stories, Hale dropped his sentiments about the said ordeal. “Snoop and Warren out here promoting a whole G-Funk documentary with premieres and all that and you would think the family of Nate Dogg would be invited while the name is being used,” Hale wrote. “Not a brother, son, daughter, they didn’t even bring my grandma out, I guess that’s how you treat the family of somebody that solidified a sound to give it such a name, but I’m just the son.”
He went on to conclude it may have been a better idea to leave his father out of the documentary and insists the conditions would be different if his father was still alive. Hale revealed that Kurupt has been the only one to keep in contact on a positive note with him, since his father’s death. “…the only homie that kept it solid since my old man passed is @therealkuruptsmoonrockgotti the rest you old ni**as don’t even need to speak his name up no more if you ni**as don’t even tap in with the family,” he wrote.
During the rant, Baby Nate also said that his rant targets have access to Nate Dogg’s music catalog, but can not release it because they apparently do not have “real permission.” He also claims the same individuals failed to visit his father during his two-year hospitalization before his death.
For Hip-Hop heads, it is never a good feeling to witness the offspring of a late legend quarrel with anyone associated with their parent’s legacy. Let’s throw in high hopes, this situation makes a positive turn.
