The Making of The Game's "The Documentary"


Produced by: Dr. Dre, Che Vicious

The Game: “We got the album done, sequenced, and Dr. Dre was like, ‘Now we need an intro.’ And I’m like, ‘An intro? I’m all rapped out!’ And he was like, ‘Nah, I’m just going to find something that fits perfectly before ‘Westside Story.’’’ So he went searching. I thought that was going to be an easy process, but that shit took a month. Dre went through like 30 different samples before he found the one he was comfortable with.

“Dre is so picky. But whenever he finds whatever it is that he’s looking for, it’s always 100 percent of what its potential is. Dre was playing different shit, and syncing it up, and all of them shits—all thirty of them motherfuckers—were right to me. But he finally found the one that was on there and he loved it. I loved all thirty of them. I don’t know who the fuck that dude is [talking on the track]. I never met him. [Laughs.] Dre probably got that shit off of Price Is Right. [Laughs.] I don’t know where he got that shit from. That’s the Doc though. I didn’t give a fuck from the beginning, so he threw it on there.”
