8. Beats By Dre & Daz
As for who made some of those classic Death Row beats, Gotti says it was really a team effort between Dr. Dre and Daz Dillinger. He remembers that Daz made the beat to “Ain’t No Fun” and Dre took it and added his “magic” to it afterwards. He even remembers that “Got My Mind Made Up” was originally a Dogg Pound record that featured Red and Meth, Lady of Rage and Inspectah Deck, but Daz lost the file. When Tupac got home he found the record and they gave it to him. While Rage used that verse on another song, Pac decided to make it even shorter and much to the objection of everyone he then cut out Inspectah Deck’s verse. “The beat is over. Take him off!” That was peak INS The Rebel, too. Damnit, Pac!
