"What Would You Do" is the debut single from Death Row Records duo Tha Dogg Pound, released in 1995 as the B-side to the Dr. Dre and Sam Sneed single "U Better Recognize",[1] along with DJ Quik's "Dollaz + Sense." It had appeared on the soundtrack to Murder Was the Case the year before, alongside songs by Snoop Dogg, DJ Quik, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Sam Sneed and other Death Row-affiliated artists. The song also appears on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack, and is the only song from that soundtrack which does not appear in the movie Natural Born Killers. While the notes originally credited solely Daz as producer, Snoop Dogg later revealed that—among other Daz Dillinger tracks—the song was co-produced by Dre.[2] It is considered to be a diss song towards B.G. Knocc Out, Dresta, Eazy-E & Cold 187um. Eazy-E responded with the tracks "Ole School Shit" and his own version of What Would U Do called "Wut Would You Do". B.G. Knocc Out & Dresta responded with "D.P.G./K". Kurupt and Daz's version was performed live at the 1995 Source Awards, and was nominated for a 1995 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group.
