What Tracks did Dre ghost produce.. and/or get production credits for?

I remember reading that some guy was suing Dre for 50 Cent's Back Down being a track he produced but not getting any production credits for

According to Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre produced Tha Dogg Pound's "What Would You Do?" and the "Dogg Food" album.

In a XXL interview, DJ Quik said that Dre ghost-produced the opening track on "Under the Influence".

Game - Don't Need Your Love (Produced by Havoc)

Quote
Game: When Dre mixed it, we couldnít find the multitracks for the beat, so he had to remake everything. Havoc made [the beat] but he didnít remember where the session was. Dre was like, "Fuck it. Iíve got to remake this shit." And he remade it like 100% the way it sounded, but of course with the Dr. Dre bang, and then he didnít take no credit for it, gave it straight to Havoc. [Editorís note: The album credits list Dr. Dre as a co-producer]. It hits like Dr. Dre beats hit, and it has a fucking EQ and mix like God touched it.

Angelo Sanders: Oh man, the shit that we do and go through to make these records happen, thatís how you know when you got a classic record. People love the song and thatís all that matters. All the rest is just bullshit that we go through. That was a whole issue because they didnít have the files so we didnít know what the original sample was. Dre had to really break the track down and figure out what was what so he recreated the record exact. He didnít try and take any kind of creative liberty on it. Dre didnít take any money for that.

Havoc: Dre definitely re-captured the essence. It sounds like they didnít do nothing to it, to be honest with you. Whatever way you're looking at it, it can be a good thing or a bad thing. For me, Iíd say itís good. Dre had to play a little bit of it over and we shared production credits. Who knows why Dre was so adamant about recreating [the track instead of asking me]? I guess because Dre was so hands-on with the project and because heís the number one producer in the world. Maybe he liked the song, so he wanted to touch it himself. At the end of the day, who else better to touch it beside Dr. Dre? Iíll share a credit with Dr. Dre any day.

But Daz probably still had a lot of involvement with that.  That's a Daz type bassline.

I always thougt listening to "Dogg Food" that Dre did something with those beats - you can hear him all over tracks like "Respect", "Let's Play House", "Doggz Day Afternoon" etc.

Yeah, he made the beats, but Dre produced the songs.

  The version of "What Would You Do" that appears on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack credits Dre as the producer.

The version on Natural Born Killers isn't a remix.  It actually sounds like the original mix.  It has a nearly identical beat as the more frequently used MTWC soundtrack version but the latter version is more polished with the added female vocals at the end and added instrumentation.  Also, Natural Born Killers soundtrack version was released first.  It's odd that Dre gets sole production credit on one while Daz gets it on the other.

Snoop was talkin' about the version on "Murder Was The Case" though.
