Charlie Wilson




“Doggfather” features Charlie Wilson and it is produced by Snoop Doggy Dogg’s Death Row label-mate Daz Dillinger and mixed by DJ Pooh. The song samples Humpin’, a 1980 song by featured performer Charlie Wilson’s longtime group, The Gap Band. Throughout the song, there are subtle references to Snoop’s murder trial which took place prior to the album’s release. At the end of the second verse, Snoop raps “Man, you know I ain’t tryin’ to floss; but ermm murder (murder) murder was the case that they lost”. There is a remix of the song produced by Timbaland that was found on the original single and most currently on The Death Row Singles Collection.

Charles Kent “Charlie” Wilson (born 29 January 1953), also known as Uncle Charlie, is an American R&B singer, songwriter, producer and the former lead vocalist for The Gap Band. As a solo artist he has been nominated for eleven Grammy awards and six NAACP Image Awards (including one WIN), received a 2009 Soul Train Icon Award, and was a recipient of a BMI Icon Award in 2005. In 2009, he was named Billboard magazine’s No. 1 Adult R&B Artist, and his song “There Goes My Baby” was named the No. 1 Urban Adult Song for 2009 in Billboard Magazine.

On 30 June 2013, BET honored Wilson with a Lifetime Achievement Award that was presented to him by Justin Timberlake. The BET tribute performances included renditions of Wilson’s songs performed by India Arie (“There Goes My Baby”), Jamie Foxx (“Yearning for Your Love”), and Stevie Wonder (“Burn Rubber”) but it was not until Wilson himself took to the stage at the request of Timberlake to perform his Grammy-nominated song “You Are” and then transition into a medley of hit songs performing alongside Timberlake and surprise guests Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams that Wilson stole the show during the youth oriented program. The Charlie Wilson tribute helped BET achieve the highest ratings in years for the program and also earned the network the #1 primetime spot in the 18-49 demographic topping all its broadcast and cable competition for the night in both demographics and total viewers.
