    "On that reference track, I’m doing Dre and Snoop’s vocals,” Hov recalls.

    It's pretty crazy that Jay wrote both Dre and Snoop's verses. He even did the vocals for how they should sound like.

    Add the fact that Scott Storch is responsable for the famous piano on the beat and it makes you wonder wtf Dre and Snoop did for that song lol.

    Lol it makes you wonder how much of dre and snoops music is actualy their own. Especially with Dre and his history of using ghost producers.
