The 100 Best L.A. Rap Songs

47. Eazy-E "Real Muthaphuckkin G's" (1993)

Album: It's On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa
Label: Ruthless, Priority
Producer: Rhythum D, Eazy-E


Admittedly, calling Snoop an “anorexic rapper” might not have been the most effective tactic in combating the career-ending juggernaut that was The Chronic. But Eazy had some salient points, especially in highlighting his financial stake in Dre's success: “E they tried to fade you on 'Dre Day' / But 'Dre Day' only meant Eazy's payday.”

Eazy's smartest move in rebutting Dre's attacks was to employ a beat that undermined the smooth likability of “Nuthin' But a G Thang.” Cooked up by Cold187, “Real Muthaphukking G's” is not a sociable piece of music. It is seasick. It is toxic. It is grotesque. The public was not on his side but Eazy's conversation was more sonic than verbal. The song's venom comes not from the rhymes, but from the juxtaposition of the song's oily, globular bass and Eazy's high-pitched taunts.
