G-Funk is the laid-back, Parliament/Funkadelic-inspired variation of gangsta rap developed by Dr. Dre in the early '90s. Distinguished by its whiny, cheap synthesizers, slow grooves, deep bass, and, occasionally, faceless female backing vocals, G-funk became the most popular genre of hip-hop in the early '90s. After the success of Dr. Dre's 1992 album The Chronic -- the album where he invented and named the genre -- many new rap artists and producers followed his musical techniques, making it the most recognizable sound in rap for most of the early '90s.
