"Doggfather" features Charlie Wilson and it is produced by Snoop Doggy Dogg's Death Row label-mate Daz Dillinger and mixed by DJ Pooh. The song samples Humpin', a 1980 song by featured performer Charlie Wilson's longtime group, The Gap Band. Throughout the song, there are subtle references to Snoop's murder trial which took place prior to the album's release. At the end of the second verse, Snoop raps "Man, you know I ain't tryin' to floss; but ermm murder (murder) murder was the case that they lost".
There is a remix of the song produced by Timbaland that was found on the original single and most currently on The Death Row Singles Collection.
In the music video it shows Snoop and actor David Foley (in the character of a Peter Lorre inspired club owner) sitting at a table in a 1940s-based mansion discussing about how Snoop's friends are abusing their power and how they need to "get a jobby job" (referencing the intro from the Gin & Juice music video). Snoop slaps the surprised club owner across the face, leading into the song with Snoop stating "play it again Sam". It shows classic dancing like the boogie and Snoop performing on stage for the rich people in the mansion. Later, Foley's character walks back to Snoop telling him he has no respect for him and he will no longer stand it and again gets hurt; this time by using Foley's finger to light a cigarette. The whole video was filmed in black and white to give it a "classic gangster feeling".
