However, it’s crazy to think that “21 Questions” almost didn’t see the light of dayDr. Dre wasn’t feeling it, but 50’s vision saved the track from oblivion. During a recent appearance on Big Boy’s Neighborhood, the BMF tycoon told a story about how the two hashed it out.

“He said, ‘I don’t know why you want?’ Why I wanted the record,” he expressed. “I’m like, ‘Damn, I gotta do all these motherf**kin’ push-ups?’ Dre would say this is N.W.A… ‘We didn’t do that.’

“Like they didn’t have to reach to make a commercial record or anything that sounded like a commercial record,” he continued. “And that’s just in his DNA. Like on his path, he’s like, ‘We don’t need that.’”
