Father of G-Funk

"Nothing But A G-Thing" is widely regarded as the catalyst for what became known as the "G-Funk Era". This was the laid back sound popularized by Dr. Dre, who sampled soul tracks and gave them that "gangsta lean". The song sampled Leon Haywood's "I Want To Do Something Freaky To You". Haywood, originally from Houston, moved to LA and enjoyed considerable success in the 60s and 70s. He was also Sam Cooke's keyboardist up until Mr. Cooke's death.
