Snoop Dogg's revealed that Dr. Dre's classic Still D.R.E wasn't the collaborative effort everyone assumes, but rather, it was written by one person - Jay-Z.
The track features both Snoop and Jay-Z, and features on Dre's 2001 album, but apparently, Jay took care of the writing on his own. What's more, it was written in just 30 minutes.
Speaking to the Breakfast Club, Snoop said, “He wrote Dre’s shit and my shit and it was flawless. It was Still D.R.E and it was Jay-Z and he wrote the whole fucking song.” It's impressive Jay was able to write verses for both Snoop and Dre, and no-one knew until now.

He also paid tribute to Jay-Z's writing, saying, “Jay-Z is a great writer to begin with for himself, so imagine him striking it for someone he truly loves and appreciates. He loves Dr. Dre and that’s what his pen showed you, that I can’t write for you if I don’t love you.”
Check out Still D.R.E below. We're pretty blown away that Jay was able to write this in 30 minutes. It makes us want to stop procrastinating, because who knows - in 30 minutes, we might just have written a classic track. Probably not, but you never know.
