The names Warren G and Allure Moscato typically don't sound like they go together. In all honesty, Warren G, the Hip-Hop veteran, who made a huge name for himself during a span where he helped create the G-Funk sound, isn't even known for making music that goes with the idea of sipping out of wine glasses. But there is a surprising connection between the "Regulator" and the moscato brand. Warren G is the face of Allure Moscato, a Bronco Wine Company liquor based in California and also available in pink moscato flavor.
Although apart of the Bounty Killer led group Alliance, Jamaican break out Dancehall artist Iceberg is rising in ranks to make a name for himself.

That limp is all too familiar to those who know me today, as it springs up after an hour or two of any pickup basketball game.
