"Real Muthaphuckkin G's" (alternatively "Real Compton City G's") is a 1993 song by West Coast rapper
Eazy-Efrom his album "It's On ( Dr. Dre) 187um Killa". It is a "" to former bandmate Dr. Dreand his new protégé Snoop Doggy Dogg.
It was a response to Dre's "
Fuck Wit Dre Day (and Everybody's Celebratin')" which was a to Eazy-E. Eazy-E explained that Dr. Dre was nothing more than a wannabe gangsta (studio gangsta) and was not an "OG" (Original Gangsta) which Dre claimed to be, Eazy also said that he was still getting paid from Dr. Dre's product, claiming that Dre's contract with Ruthless Records was still making him money. This is mentioned when Dresta states that "Damn E,They tried to fade you on Dre Day" to which Eazy-E responds "But Dre Day only meant Eazy's payday". Eazy expressed his hate for Dre, Snoop Doggy Dogg, and Death Row Recordswhen saying "Motherfuck Dre, motherfuck Snoop, motherfuck Death Row, yo and here comes my left blow." The second verse is from Dresta, where he claims that Dre "Ain't broke a law in his life, but yet every time he rap he yap about the guns and knives". On the third verse B.G. Knocc Outsays that Dre is what he calls a "wannabe" and "ain't shit compared to real Muthaphuckkin' G's." Snoop Doggy Dogg is blasted in the song for being very skinny. This is when Eazy-E raps "ya like a kid ya found pup and you're dapper, but tell me where the fuck you found an anorexic rapper, talkin' bout who you go squabble with and who you shoot, you're only sixty pounds when you're wet and wearing boots"
In Eazy's final verse he states:
"But at Death row, I hear you're gettin treated like boot camp
Gotta follow ya sergeant's directions,
or get your assPopped with a Smith & Wesson
Learn a lesson from the E
Stay in your place and don't step to real muthaphukkin G's".
This could possibly be in reference to several rumors (at the time) which eventually became fact, about
Suge Knight's abrasive and abusive management. Witnesses who worked at Death Row said they had seen or had even been victims themselves of Suge's physical or verbal abuse by either him or members of his entourage.
The song samples the line "stop him in his tracks, show him that I am ruthless" from
The D.O.C.'s 1989 track "It's Funky Enough". In the chorus part of the song, Eazy says, "Yo Dre," from his song Eazy-Duz-It. When Dre responds, "what's up,"Eazy fires a gun then replies, "Should have known by now, Eazy-Duz-It."
The song line "Dre Day only meant Eazy's Pay Day" was stating that Eazy had a contract with Dre as his exclusive producer. So Dre could diss Eazy as much as he wanted Eazy would get paid from anything Dre made for the next six years.
The video for "Real Muthaphukkin G's" was shot in
Compton, Californiaand starts with a scene picturing lowriders and then Eazy-E comes to rap his verse, when he says "all of the sudden Dr. Dreis the G thang but on his old album-covers he was a she-thang", a picture of Dr. Dre from the World Class Wreckin' Crudays shows up on the screen where he is wearing mascara and lipstick. He continues to show pictures from the insert of the album and the rest of the video mostly consists of Eazy, Knocc Out and Dresta standing in front of a lowrider talking about how Dre is not from Compton (Dr. Dre actually grew up in an unincorporated section of South Los Angeles, just north of Compton). Also, the music video has cameo appearances from Rhythum D, DJ Yella, Cold 187um, Dirty Red, Krazy Dee, Steffon, H.W.A., MC Ren, DJ Slipfrom Compton's Most Wanted, Young Hoggs, Blood of Abrahamand Tony-A.
The video also contains scenes of an Eazy-E look-alike (known as "
Sleazy-E") who previously appeared in the "Dre Day" music video, being assaulted and shot by the real Eazy-E, Knocc Out and Dresta, being chased by a dog and finally chased by Eazy-E and a mob of people until he falls dead after passing a traffic sign reading "Leaving Compton."
