Scarface Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Scarface f/ Dr. Dre, Ice Cube & Too $hort "Game Over" (1997)

Producer: Dr. Dre
Album: The Untouchable
Label: Rap-A-Lot Records

Scarface: “I begged Dr. Dre for the record. I was persistent about getting a record from him. He invited me over to the studio and he did like three or four beats for me. A lot of people say what they want to say about Dre like he don’t do his own shit but that’s a lie, Dre was hands on. We were very adamant about getting that record from Dre.

“When we finally got the record, we had trouble clearing it. Jimmy Iovine would not clear it record for some reason. Somehow, Dre had a conversation with people over at Interscope and I ended up getting that record for free. I don’t know what was said or what was done, all I know is I got to use that record and I never heard anything else about it. At that time a Dre beat was like $75,000 or $100,000.”
