Home / Biography / Battlecat



Among the Western world Coast’s most promising rap manufacturers from the later ’90s, Battlecat made a considerable name for himself by setting up beats for Snoop Dogg and his affiliate marketers (Kurupt, tha Eastsidaz, Doggy’s Angels, Xzibit), plus a number of various other Western world Coastline rappers. His visual is a development through the early-’90s G-funk sound pioneered by Dr. Dre, seen as a fats synth bass lines and soulful tips. A few of his better productions — Snoop Dogg’s “Stacey Adams,” E-40’s “Nah, Nah…,” Xzibit’s “Been quite a while” — bring a feeling of laid-back funky spirit to the particular artist’s typically gangsta rap audio; furthermore, his productions also makes an excellent usage of crooning Gs, such as for example Nate Dogg and Kokane, for the choruses to accentuate the spirit component. If his past due-’90s productions didn’t solidify his put in place the Western world Coast’s roster of top notch manufacturers, the chart-topping achievement of Doggy’s Angels’ “Baby IF YOU ARE Prepared” (which spend multiple weeks near the top of Billboard’s Popular Rap Singles graph in past due 2000) just affirmed the strength of his visual.
