  • Songimage
  • In this song, Snoop and Dr. Dre (who produced the track), fondly express the pleasures of attending parties where gin and juice is served. They believe this concoction lends a degree of excitement and hedonism to the proceedings, and that bringing a bottle of good gin to the party warrants a degree of respect, making that individual worthy of much admiration.
  • Apparently, gin and juice (also known as a "paradise cocktail") goes well with a particularly potent form of marijuana called "Indo," which is mentioned in the chorus. The clean version has the word edited out.
  • The chorus is based on the song "Watching You" by Slave, and the bassline is sampled from "I Get Lifted" by George McRae. >>

  • The country/bluegrass band The Gourds covered this in 1998. They were on the leading edge of a trend: folk and bluegrass bands covering rap songs. >>

  • Charles from Fayetteville, ArThe Gourds presented it as an entirely different genre. I like the original, but I prefer the Gourds. Those who haven't heard either, listen to the original then the latter.
  • Brandon from Middletown, InIt is 'Indo', but Indo comes from the marijuana crossbreeds of Indonesian indica strains with western sativa.
  • Brian from Greenville, ScI first heard this song performed by the Gourds and I'm still laughing at their rowdy Texas country version. I believe the variety of marijuana referred to is called "indo'" because it is grown "indoors" under lights as opposed to growing "outdo'"
  • David from Reno, Nvwow cool review. and its "endo" with an "e". and believe me that concoction definately lends some degree of excitement and hedomisms to the proceedings of fat parties. does the guy who wrote these songfacts teach english at cambridge?
