[Nate Dogg] Hey, this Nate Dogg.

Blow some stuff, Doctor.

[Snoop Dogg] I got my natural

in effect for the Nine Trey.

[Nate Dogg] Y'all recordin'

audio on this motherf***er?

[man speaks indistinctly]

[laughing]

[Snoop Dogg]

Warren G, got the tape?

- [Warren G] Right here.

- [Snoop Dogg] Put it on.

[Snoop Dogg] One thing about

magic, when you makin' magic,

the ingredients sometimes

don't come with instructions.

You just gotta know

how to put that sh*t together.

["Flash Light"

by Parliament playing]

Now I lay me down to sleep

Ooh, I just can't

Find a beat

- Flash light

- Ohh I will never dance

Flash light

Flash light

Flash light

Ha-da-da-dee-da

Hada-hada-da-da

Oh it's no use

- Flash light

- Red light

- Neon light

- Ooh stop light

Now I lay me down to sleep

I guess I'll go

Count the sheep

Oh but I will never dance

Everybody gotta

Feel the light

Under the sun

[echoing]

["Summertime in the LBC"

by The Dove Shack playing]

Summertime

Yeah this is C-Knight

From The Dove Shack

Gettin' dojahed out

Kickin' it at King's Park

With all the homies

[chuckles]

Sh*t.

Hey you know what I'm sayin'

So why don't you, uh

Check out my homie

Bo to the Roc

Hear this little solo thing

I ride with the

I slide with the

Locs and doggs

From the LBC

All of the tricks

Wanna kick it with me

'Cause I run with Warren G

Braid your weaves

Bustaz and G's

[Warren G] I was

raised off of 21st & Lewis,

pretty rough side

of the east side of Long Beach.

- East Siders

- East Siders

Growing up on the east side,

it was fun. It was cool.

Lotta sports, activities.

Ways to make money.

No matter what it was, you know,

we could get that at King Park.

King Park was the epicenter

of where all our

relationships started.

- It was our home.

- Let me hear you say

Ooh ooh ooh ooh oh

Ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh

Summertime in the LBC

[Warren G] I would walk

to school in the morning,

me and my sister,

Snoop and his mom...

His mom used to walk him

across the park

to go to school

at the same time.

So we used to see each other

goin' across the park.

[Snoop Dogg] When we would

see each other at King Park,

we would always, you know,

click and hang out.

It was every time you

seen Warren, you seen Snoop,

every time you seen Snoop,

you seen Warren.

["That Lady, Pt. 1 & 2"

by The Isley Brothers playing]

United Teens was a man

named Jeff in a blue van.

We called the van the Voltron,

and we was the Voltron Crew.

He used to pick us up,

take us to different

neighborhoods to sell candy.

We would work real hard,

we would sell all of the candy

that's in the boxes,

and all we would get

out of the deal

was, like, $25, maybe.

You know,

we'd go to school, $15, $20,

you ballin', you know

what I'm sayin'?

And we was able to, you know,

learn how to hustle,

learn how to communicate

and have dialog and dialect.

And to be articulate,

knockin' on doors,

"Hi, Ma'am,

we're with United Teens,"

and learnin'

how to sell product

and, you know,

look somebody in the eye.

And that went

a long way with us

because it was like a skill

that wasn't being handed down

in the neighborhood.

Nobody was teaching this.

And most of the guys

that did that,

back when we were kids,

all of them niggas got money

or got jobs.

[Warren G] He gave us the

opportunity to make something,

even though he was makin'

a lot of money off of us.

We weren't smart enough

to understand everything.

["The Message" by Grandmaster

Flash & The Furious Five playing]

[siren]

Towards the late seventies,

music had

begin to change, and

hip-hop was being created.

You could just see

breakdancin'

and pop-lockin' and rappin',

you know, become the new

sensation in the neighborhood.

[Kurupt]

And when it comes to hip-hop,

it was New York and Philly

that really connected.

That was the core of it.

[Chuck D] And the record

company, mainly the majors,

they only sold it as vinyl,

'cause they didn't think that

hip-hop and rap music

could sell albums.

And that was

the pioneering era.

[Ice Cube]

You know, hip-hop,

when it came out

in the eighties,

it... it gave us new hope.

You got to remember

that before rap,

you had to be in a band.

You know, you had

to really play instruments.

If you couldn't sing

or you couldn't play

no instrument,

you couldn't be

in the music business.

You know, not as an entertainer.

Hip-hop changed all that.

You know, say, yo,

if you got this other skill...

You know, if you can

make records like this,

you know, you can hit

the same stage

as Prince and Michael Jackson,

and, you know, all the stars

of the day.

[Ice T] And that was the

breakaway thing with hip-hop.

Average kids were able to make

a form of music.

[bell ringing]

[Snoop Dogg] Being in school,

helped me a lot as a rapper,

because battle rap was like,

you know, your 15 minutes

of fame back then

as far as having

a record deal.

Nobody really had deals

back then.

So I entered

into the battle rap world.

[Ice Cube] When you're an

amateur, that's all you got.

'Cause you gonna make your mark

at nutrition

or at lunch

on the same quad.

You know, everybody

gonna get around and rap

and gonna see who the best.

[Daz Dillinger]

It's like a gang fight.

You know, after school

you're ready to rumble.

And sometimes you win,

sometimes you might lose,

sometimes you might
