Dr. Dre Shares To Story Behind “Nothing But A G Thang” On Big Boy’s Neighborhood

“The original version to “Nothin But A G Thang” was made to a Boz Scaggs song. I can’t remember the name of the song. Snoop was actually in jail and I really wanted this demo done. So, he called in and I taped the receiver of the phone to the mic. You can hear jail sounds in the back and everything. And he’s ‘1, 2′ and that whole thing. So, that was the original version.

I just happened to be at mom’s house and found this record, Leon Hayward’s “I Wanna Do Something Freaky To You” and thought that would be a better foundation track. So, took that back, recorded the track and Snoop got out, and we recorded the song at my house. It was a bedroom that I converted to a studio. That’s where the first half of The Chronic was made.”

Got the drop at Big Boy TV . . .
