Album: Ego Trippin' (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This samples the Isley Brothers' 1977 instrumental "Voyage to Atlantis."
  • Rapper Kurupt guests on this. He told dubcnn.com how he got involved on this track: "Me, DJ Quik and Terrace Martin was in the studio, they was working on [Snoop's] album, mixing down records. He pulled that one up and when I heard it, they was like 'Kurupt, lay that chorus!' Me and Terrace went through a couple of ideas, and then I laid it out, ya dig? After listening to all the records on there, we were just feeling like we needed to have something for Snoopy on there kind of like 'Next Episode', just banging like that! I didn't expect it to be as big as it became, but we were really just searching for that 'Next Episode' vibe, where Snoop can really just stretch his wings out on there. Snoop loved it, and the rest is history."
