It's hard to deny either, they're both classics. While I appreciate the lyrics on Dre and Snoop's version and grew up listening to that song, one of the greatest lyrical moments in the history of hip hop had to be this...
"Dead in the middle of Little Italy little did we know
that we riddled some middleman who didn't do diddily"
YOU KNOW, your jaw hit the floor the first time you heard that. YOU KNOW you rewound it fifty times. Don't front.
