By Scott Goldfine

Long Beach, Calif.-based gangsta rapper Warren G has followed up his multiplatinum debut, “Regulate ― G-Funk Era,” with the sporadically inspired “Take a Look Over Your Shoulder.” As before, the rapper sing-song rhymes over mid-tempo funk grooves smoothed out for mass accessibility.

Warren G demonstrates the style but none of the innovation of his industry-leading half-brother, Dr. Dre.
