Whats getting crazy is people saying that Dre did every beat that sounds somewhat like his style!  Dre had NOTHING to do with this beat........


Ya. everyone sounds like Dre right now, who cares?  2001 changed the game, just as the original Chronic did.  Listen to rap and R&B albums from 93-97, they are all influenced by Dre's style at least a little, but this doesn't mean he worked with everyone.

Great song. T-Mix produced it with no help from Dre. Nas demolishes his verse.

NIK: But the problem is, Dre Mixed that song/album, so it's obvious he did shit with the beat, especially with all those Dre snature keys...PeACE

Dre was one of the Exec Producer (I Think) of the album...SOOOO, there's a good chance he Ghost-Produced it, or at least helped out with the beat...There's a LOT of Dre Signature sounds in there...PeAcE

You see Dre in every beat, don't you?
I see what you mean though, 70% of todays hiphop-producers is influenced by Dre, but that doesn't mean that Dre "has sumthin to do with it" all the time..

Fuck man, refer to my post about 6 posts above......you do realize that people steal sounds or use the same sounds sometimes, right? Dre has had a lot of influence, oh well, but he doesn't produce everything that sounds  a little bit like his style.

Trust me man...When Fredwreck dropped those wanna-be Dre beats ("Hardest Muthafuckaz", "Revenge Of Jimmy Bones", etc), I could tell they weren't Dre beats, because there's something different about them...But "Multiply" and "Some of Em" just have something about them that has "Dre Did This" written all over it...I think Dre has been Ghost-Producing...Dre was involved in both of the songs/projects, so it's a BIG possibility he did some Ghost-Production for "Mutliply" and/or "Some of Em"...PeAcE

^^^^ Dre did do multiply, and J Prince is the exec producer of the album.  Dre did one song on the album.

LoL...you can say the same for Irv Gotti, Seven and Storch.  That doesn't mean Dre did that track.  Dre was very distant from this album.  He was never supposed to be ex. producer  anyway.  

You gotta stop assuming NIK, cause you have no evidence whatsoever.

Exactly, but I never said Dre produced it.  Like you are with "Multiply."
