Warren G is making a fantastic claim about one of the greatest albums in hip-hop history.
The West Coast rap legend recently sat down with Drink Champs to talk about his long career and noted around 50 minutes into the interview that he helped co-produce Dr. Dre’s classic The Chronic but wasn’t compensated for doing so.
“My only thing is I wish, you know, I wish I was more business-minded back then,” he claimed, following the suggestion that he and Daz Dillinger co-produced on the 1992 LP. “What my thing was, is like I said, to show the love back to him … This is the reward for you teaching me, by me and my homies coming back, putting this record together for you. I just wish I would’ve knew about publishing back then, ‘cause that would be lovely right now.”

When asked by N.O.R.E. to clarify about potential financial compensation element, Warren G replied: “I didn’t get s**t. I didn’t get no credit. Snoop gave me some credit. He said my name on ‘Stranded on Death Row.’ … I didn’t get shit on that m****rf****r. But I wasn’t tripping, I was there for Dre, you know what I mean? You know, helping Dre.”
Officially, the only credited appearance made by Warren G was the intro for “Deeez Nuuuts.” As for the production, Dre is the only one credited.
Also, during the interview, Warren G described his childhood, finding a good majority of the samples for The Chronic, and how he convinced Snoop Dogg to watch the Mike Tyson vs. Bruce Seldon fight in Las Vegas the night Tupac was shot four times during a drive-by shooting, which ultimately took his life days later.
