Dr. Dre and Ice Cube's Death Row Duets

Shortly after old N.W.A. homies Dr. Dre and Ice Cube reunited in 1994 to record “Natural Born Killaz” for the Murder Was the Case soundtrack, they announced they were making a whole album together. Needless to say, the project was never released, and The D.O.C., who had written many of Dre's verses for the work-in-progress, released his own takes on the songs on an album of the same name—supposedly to spite Dre and Death Row, whom he accused of stiffing him on royalties.
