Album: 2001
Producer: Dr. Dre and Mel-ManUtilizing the sinister David McCallum/David Axlrod sample “The Edge,” the always on fire Dr. Dre and Snoop took the world higher with this song about “California love, this California bud.” While the smash single was already extremely gangsta, the Paul Hunter–directed video further explored the shoot-'em-up motif with a slick neo-noir clip. Invoking a money, bitches and perms aesthetic, some folks are still wondering what Snoop was smoking when he decided to show up to the set with that black Barbie hairstyle. Church!
