The D.O.C. interview from '08 (DubCNN)

Dubcnn: Mel-Man was such a big part of 2001, then he just disappeared shortly after that. Now weíre hearing that heís back, but no one I guess really knows. Can you confirm that?

Mel-Man is always around. But sometimes, and Iím going to say this as humbly as I can. Dre is a giver, and he will give you...like a lot of people always tend to give other folks credit Ďcause theyíre around when shit is going down. But, if it come out of here, you can bet your last money Dre is on it so tough, that anybody elseís energy that wouldíve been on it is being smothered. You understand? Itís no longer there. Like, if I found a sample and gave it to Dre, what heís going to do with it is going to make it so different from what it was when I had it that in order for me to claim it, it would take a lot of nuts and a lot of pride. And pride is not good.

Dre is not in to ĎI did thatí, because he already knows he did the shit. Thatís the same shit used when Daz was around. It was supposed to be all Dazís. I sit and watch these niggaz. They give the nigga [Dre] the drums and he takes them and builds them Ďcause they canít do what Dre do. They donít have his ears. So itís all in the guyís ears and how he hears the shit. Itís not something so special that heís doing to the drums that they not doing. You can use the same equipment that he uses, but heís going to turn that button a little differently than you turn it, and make that shit sound different. Thatís the key. Thatís the key.

I guess what he means is kind of like Dre is the glue, and everyone else is the pieces.. the individual pieces aren't enough on their own, and need fixing up, and putting in the right order, with the right treatment. thats what Dre does right? He knows how to get the best out of a thing

So the pieces contribute, but they only light the touch paper for Dre to really do this thing..


So the question then is, if Dre did more work and "all" you did was inspire him.. do you deserve the credit?

Exactly

Dre was the producer .. The rest were session players. Period.
