Speaking of what it was like to break into the scene, Warren G told People: When I was coming up, it was hard — real hard — because we didnt have a platform where you push a button and your music spreads out to everyone, so we had dub cassette tapes that we had to take to people at clubs and in the streets, and then they take those to people.

It circulated like the internet, but without the internet.

For G Funk, Matt Carpenter serves as an executive producer together with producers Gary Ousdahl, Rafael Chavez, Bob Ruggeri and Warren G. The film is produced by G Funk Productions, Chavez Bros. Productions, and Omega Point Films.
