"Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang" may be more well-known and "Deep Cover" is a lot grittier, but in terms of classic Snoop and Dre team-ups, this strikes just the right balance between catchy and hardcore. Dre perfected the G-Funk sound he'd introduced on The Chronic for Snoop's debut album, with "Gin and Juice" displaying an excellent example of that formula—a masterful blending of popular samples (George McCrae's "I Get Lifted"), live bass, high-pitched synths, and hooks that update old funk staples with hedonistic new lyrics.
