With life long friends, unparalleled talent and an 18-track album full of stellar songs, 213 proves that THE HARD WAY has been well worth the wait. "Nate brought the gangster melodies to the game," Warren G says. "Snoop brought the smooth gangster style to the game. We've had an incredible impact. Now its time for us to reinvent West Coast hip-hop." Stand-out tracks on the album include "Another Summer" produced by Kanye West; "So Fly" a revamped version of R&B singer Monica's hit "So Gone"; and "Joysticc", a head-nodding track inviting female fans to an one-night affair. "It ain't really talked about as a big record coming out this year and ain't nobody really expecting it, but it's a great record with a lot of good songs on it," says Snoop Dogg. THE HARD WAY is one of the many upcoming releases from TVT Records.
