Warren G Net Worth is $10 Million (as of 2019)
Warren G net worth is currently estimated at $10 million and while this is definitely an impressive fortune, recently his career has not been going so well. Back in the 1990s, when he ascended to stardom, Warren used to work with people whose names will go down in hip- hip history: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog and 2pac. His debut album, which reached the stores in 1994, topped US R&B chart and sold millions of copies. Meanwhile his latest album did not even chart and was barely noticed by critics. On the other hand, Warren is still producing and knowing how tuff the competition in this industry is, I guess managing to make it for 20 years is quite an achievement. So let’s take a closer look at the story of Warren G net worth growth.

Warren’s, whose full name is Warren Griffin III, career in music industry started in the early 1990s when he and his childhood friends Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg formed a trio titled 213, which was the original telephone area code of Los Angeles. Their first successful song was “Deeez Nuuuts”, released with Dr. Dre’s multi-platinum album The Chronic. Although the trio’s cooperation did not last long, Warren still keeps great memories about its members. For example, in an interview for the Buzz Feed Warren has spoken about the ways they filled their days with laughter: “Snoop is one of the coldest cats out there. We’d have bagging sessions, just bagging on everyone. Snoop would have everybody on the bus laughing”. By the way, Snoop’s fortune is much greater than Warren G net worth: the man, or the “cat”, as Warren calls him, has $135 million in his disposal. But of course, Snoop Dogg is one of the richest rapper in the world and in comparison to him nearly everybody looks poor.
Although the 213 did not make it as a band, Warren continued a fruitful cooperation with its individual members. For example, in Warren and Nate Dogg released a single “Regulate” together, which was nominated for Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. In 1994 Warren G released his debut studio album, titled Regulate… G Funk Era. The record received generally positive reviews from critics. For example, Rolling Stone, one of the most influential music magazines, wrote: “…fat-bottomed, mellowed-out sound that conjures up the days of way back. Its lazy, loping shuffle suits the Southern California climate…”. Meanwhile Spin has highly recommended the album for its readers. But the sales numbers spoke louder than critics: Regulate… G Funk Era distributed 176,000 copies during the opening week and eventually received 3 x Platinum certificate from RIAA. If the rest of his albums were at least half as successful as the first one, today we would be counting Warren G net worth in tens of millions.
