This time we got some very special G-Funk release to speak on: Marv – Island Cruisin’. It’s coming from Dumaguete city / Philippines, however, it was fully produced by Laidback (the French producer who’s been residing in Dublin, Ireland) & it’s the first album on his own label called “Laidback Sounds”. It’s interesting that Laidback and Marv met together through their common friend Hotnixx, a famous local rapper in Phillipines, and it took them a year before they finished this album. All in all, it did turn out to be a real dope album with a summertime mood all the way though, and it feels like being present on some tropical island while listening to the whole joint. Laidback did a great job on production which is truly original without any sampling whatsoever.
The guests include Enois Scroggins, Winfree, Collarossi, Knowa Lazarus, Aika Zabala, Hotnixx, Margo Lombard, Soo Smooth and Sick P.
The CD hardcopies (real replicated CD’s, not CD-R’s) are already in stock at available with Laidback in Ireland, from where he ships worldwide. Get at Laidback himself on his Facebook or his email firstname.lastname@example.org to order this dope album.
A young American rapper Lil Woofy Woof (aka Young Dazzie) from Charlotte, NC has been known to us for a while, mostly thanks to the French producer CARTELSONS, who produced his 1st full-length album “Back In Tha Dayz” & released in CD format in 2016. Now, they’re both back with 2nd solo album of Lil Woofy Woof: Night Ride. This time it was also completely produced by CARTELSONS and features Bad Azz, Tha Chill (CMW), Nuelife aka Lo Life (5th Ward Boyz), Aloe Jo’el, Wary, Gyovanni, Half Deezy, Billy Cook, Talent…
We had a chance to speak to the latter regarding this album and working with Lil Woofy Woof, and this is what he said: “Woof is one of the best talented artist I have worked with. He got it as a don and he make me think about those westcoast legends like back in the days. I’m an oldies lover, I mean, I always listen some old soulful and blues music and I was like “why we don’t make another album but always with old school sample?”. So I started working on it, went into my samples folders and began making music. I used some beats I made in the past that fit 100% with the mood. Woof agreed and we start working like that.”
This album got released in CD format on July 19th as very limited pressing of 200, though on real pressed (replicated) CD’s (not duplication/CD-R’s), so if you’re buying it, you’re getting the real deal!

Amos Moore IV, the g-funk genius, rap artist & producer from Tacoma, WA, known to many g-funk heads as Scrooge finally has recently come back with his long-awaited 3rd album “Ghetto Religion”. Though it’s been 10 years since he dropped his 2nd album called “Ride Wit Me”, it was well worth the wait because his new album ain’t nuthin’ but pure g-funk dope, which we all been waiting for so long!
He worked on this album about a year perfecting it in each and every way, with all the 9 tracks produced by Scrooge himself. On the album he got help of some nice vocal singers including his long-time companion LaKesha Edwards, and Robert Jordan on the guitars. What we try to say that this album was made with top quality: recording, mastering, pressing – we absolutely recommend this A+ release.
You can cop this album in CD format or digital @ store.cdbaby.com delivered worldwide.
NNP (New Nuclear Power) is the legendary Jazzy hip-hop / G-Funk group from Slovakia has been well known to some true hip-hop heads as they have been active since early 90’s and until their disbanding in 2000. During that period they dropped a number of CD / vinyl singles and the full-length album “Everydaylife$tyle” (CD’s & tapes) on BMG Ariola in 1997. Though, not many people know that they worked on and recorded their 2nd album in 1999-2000 but it was shelved due to the group break-up soon after they finished working on that album. So, today, right on the G-Funk.WS 7 Year Anniversary, we are pleased to announce the release of NNP’s 2nd album “Resurrection” in CD format, in connection with Invizzible Music (Slovakia). It includes all original studio recordings with no sound degradation for all y’all audiophiles down with us.
On this album you find 11 tracks predominantly produced by DJ K.I.P., a kind of Jazzy Hip-Hop & G-Funk fusion, so nicely blended for your listening pleasure that one might get left with a feeling that he wants to spin the CD one more time in a row. Another lost gem to your collection, plus, for the people who listen hip-hop only in English, it might be a surprise that mostly this album contains English language, NNP did the most records in it back in the days, so you will understand the most part of the lyrics.
You can order this album in CD and digital format @ G-Funk.WS Official Bandcamp but make sure not to take your time as the pressing is limited to 300 copies worldwide. Once again, no bullshit CD-R’s, nice design and artwork layout by Marina Sparrow. We do only quality stuff for y’all…7 years already!
