Zapp's hallmark is the talk-box, a vocal effect Roger uses and abuses throughout the discography of this funk group which, in the '90s, became the ultimate reference for West Coast rappers. The result: ten years after their glory days, the members of the Troutman family - especially Roger - are back with a vengeance, Roger even singing a duet with 2Pac and Dr Dre on the hard-hitting single "California Love". Like George Clinton, to whom he is close, Roger Troutman is one of those who say thank you to sampling.
