Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre have rebooted their 1993 classic track, “Gin & Juice,” for the country crowd, and they’ve enlisted the help of rising country music superstar Hardy to do it.

Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre Put Country Spin On 'Gin & Juice' With Help From Hardy


Hardy dropped the track on Friday (April 19), and explained that he personally got the call from the West Coast legends to do the cover.

“A while back, I got a phone call saying that Jimmy Iovine, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg would like for me to record my own version of ‘Gin and Juice’ for the launch of their new drink, Gin & Juice,” he told Complex. “I’m still in disbelief, but I am so stoked that I’m dropping my version of ‘Gin and Juice’ with the blessing of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg themselves. Thankful for the opportunity.”

The official video will be released next month, but you can take a listen to the track below.

As Hardy mentioned, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre enlisted his help as a promotion for the pair’s upcoming beverage of the same name.

Back in February, the duo shared a cinematic trailer for their new ‘Gin & Juice’ product that features them playing two gangsters reminiscent of Vincent and Jules from Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 classic Pulp Fiction.

Based on a clip shared by the legendary team’s joint Twitter account, the drink will come in four flavors: Apricot, Citrus, Melon, and Passionfruit.

It is worth noting that multiple ‘Gin & Juice’ trademarks were filed last year by a company called Defiant Ones, LLC, which shares its name with the 2017 mini-series about the alliance between Dre and Jimmy Iovine.

The same entity also filed a claim over “Vodka & Juice By Dre and Snoop.” Considering their collaborative social media account is called ByDreAndSnoop, which doesn’t specify any one product, more items by the two might be in the works.

The California natives are also working together on a new album together titled Missionary.

During an appearance on All the Smoke with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Snoop talked about the process.

“I’m in the lab with Dr. Dre right now — that’s Death Row/Aftermath,” he said. “We finishing that up right now, tidying up the pieces to that. He’s a perfectionist. The n-gga called me one day about two years ago. He was like, ‘N-gga, come over, let me do a couple of songs with you.’”

He continued: “I go over there and he like, ‘N-gga, let me do your album.’ And I’m like, ‘Alright, let’s go!’ We go in, knock out a couple of songs. He hit me back: ‘I need two more days.’ I got that call probably about 85 times. This n-gga need two more days all the time.

“But when you hear what we have and how he got me rapping, it’s like a grown Snoop Dogg. There’s some growth to him. It’s the way he selects his bars, it’s the way he uses his voice. [Dr. Dre] uses me like a fucking robot and I love it because I love to be produced. I love to be challenged.”

Snoop went on to call the material they’ve recorded for the album “masterful” and praised Dre for using his voice “like an instrument.”
