Lines from Dr. Dre’s “Nuthin but a G Thang,” Revised

I continue to make my case: I am a fully-realized man!
I look good, if I might say so; I believe you might say so, too.
If female comrades demur, I’ll engage in civil discourse
And endeavor to disabuse them of misconception.

Of Dr. Dre and the Cookie Simile

In his 1993 duet with Snoop Dogg, “Nuthin but a ‘G’ Thang,” Dr. Dre does what MCs do: he proclaims superiority over fellow MCs.

It is known that Dre does not pen his own lyrics, but rather employs a stable of rappers to do so under his close  supervision. But in “Nuthin but a ‘G’ Thang,” it would appear Dre’s usually keen editorial eye did not catch the faltering bravado of this couplet:

Droppin’ the funky shit that’s makin’ the sucka niggas mumble
When I’m on the mic, it’s like a cookie, they all crumble

That’s right: when Dr. Dre’s on the mic, “it’s like a cookie.” Sucka MCs crumble before him.

This might be a passable boast were the MC that notorious blue versifier from the hood of Sesame, MC Cookie Monster, but Dr. Dre of Compton?
