"Down for My N's" (written and stylized as Down 4 My N's on the Snoop Dogg releases) is a song by C-Murder featuring Snoop Dogg and Magic from Dogg's fourth album, No Limit Top Dogg and C-Murder's Trapped in Crime. Kanye West included an interpolation of this song in his song "Blood on the Leaves", and Khia included an interpolation for her song "Fuck Dem Other Hoes" from her debut album. There are two edited versions of "Down for My N's"; one uses amended lyrics, for example "Touch them other Hittas cause I'm down for my Hittas", which is used on the radio and the other uses an gun sound effect and backmasking to censor swearing, which is on the clean version of the latter albums.
