When replacing the focal point of arguably the biggest group in hip-hop history, the new guy better be up to par. That’s why when N.W.A. was re-imagined by Ice Cube for “Chin Check” – the lead single from his Next Friday soundtrack in 1999 – the MC chosen to fill in the late Eazy E’s massive shoes was none other than Snoop Dogg.

Despite having previously put the Jheri-curled Compton legend on blast upon orders from The Good Doc, the Doggfather’s notoriety and charisma on the mic proved to be the perfect fit on the group’s howling reunion track, which came on strong immediately with a spine-tingling 911 call for an intro and ended up providing a surprising punch from a group who hadn’t recorded together in a decade.
