Warren G is preparing to make a return with his third album, and the rapper has lined up a list of guests from both inside and outside his G-Funk camp for the LP."I Want It All" will be the rapper's first album since 1997's "Take A Look Over Your Shoulder (Reality)" and it'll feature, among other guests, Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg, whom G-Funk fans will recognize as the three rappers who comprised 213, the early-'90s Long Beach hip-hop group that pre-dated Snoop's hooking up with Dr. Dre (Warren G's half-brother). But the album isn't just a Long Beach thing: also guesting on the album will be Slick Rick, Jermaine Dupri, and Ruff Ryders Eve and Drag-On. Recently Warren spoke with the MTV Radio Network about working with other artists. "On my [last album], I didn't have a whole bunch of collaborations," Warren G told the MTV Radio Network. "I was just featuring my artists.
But now I went and did songs with Jermaine Dupri, Slick Rick, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, a lot of people, east and west." [RealAudio]"I Want It All" is due to hit stores in October.
