"Regulate" is a song performed by Warren G and Nate Dogg. Released in the summer of 1994, the track appears on the soundtrack to the film Above the Rim and later Warren G.'s album Regulate...G Funk Era. The song reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #8 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart. It is considered the breakout single for both artists and makes heavy use of a four-bar sample of the rhythm of Michael McDonald's song "I Keep Forgettin'". The music video featured scenes from Above the Rim, including an appearance by Tupac Shakur. It was number 98 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop and number 108 on Pitchfork Media's Top 200 Tracks of the 90s.
