Ruthless Revenge

Like Cube, Dr. Dre eventually got into battle over paperwork with Eazy-E, and it led to the dissolution of N.W.A. By 1992, Dre left Ruthless, signed with Death Row Records and released "F--- wit Dre Day (And Eveybody Celebratin')" featuring Snoop Doggy Dogg and a video featuring the fictional character Sleazy-E. E hit back with "Real Muthaph--kin' G's," calling Dre a "she thang" and flashing a pic of Dre in makeup and sequined jumpsuit.
