The song is an early example of G-funk produced by Dr. Dre. His commercially successful solo debut, "The Chronic," further developed the sub-genre with beats, samples, and instrumentation similar to the one used in "Alwayz into Somethin.'" The song was featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, on the West Coast gangsta rap station, Radio Los Santos.
In a part of the lyrics, N.W.A disses O'Shea "Ice Cube" Jackson in the line, "Dre I was speakin' to your bitch O'Shea", referring to Ice Cube leaving the group over royalty disputes.
In the music video, N.W.A's members are shown shoplifting, stealing cars, shooting at rival gang members, blowing things up, being arrested and thrown in jail, and generally making a nuisance of themselves. The video depicts scenes of murder and gang violence.
