"Real Muthaphuckkin G's" (alternatively "Real Compton City G's") is a 1993 song by West Coast rapper Eazy-E from his album It's On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa. It is a diss track directed at former N.W.A bandmate Dr. Dre and his protégé Snoop Doggy Dogg. There is also a subtle diss to Suge Knight, who is mentioned as Dr. Dre's "sergeant". It peaked at No. 42 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming Eazy-E's highest charting single as a lead artist. The song makes reference to royalties awarded to Eazy-E from recordings by Dre.
The music video for "Real Muthaphukkin G's" was written and directed by Eazy-E's longtime Ruthless Records film director Marty Thomas. It was shot entirely in Compton, California and starts with an artistic aerial helicopter montage of Compton landmarks dissolving to a scene picturing lowriders, and the metro Blue Line. Eazy-E comes to rap his verse; when he says "all of the sudden Dr. Dre is the G thang; but on his old album covers he was a she-thang", a picture of Dr. Dre from the World Class Wreckin' Cru days shows up on the screen where he is wearing mascara and lipstick. He continues to show pictures from the insert of the album throughout the video.
The video also contains scenes of an Eazy-E look-alike (known as "Sleazy-E") who previously appeared in the "Dre Day" music video, being assaulted and shot by the real Eazy-E, Knocc Out and Dresta, being chased by a dog and finally chased by Eazy-E and a mob of people until he falls dead after passing a traffic sign reading "Leaving Compton." An alternate ending shows Sleazy-E dead on the same area he started in the video. The music video features cameo appearances from Rhythm D, DJ Yella, Cold 187um, Dirty Red, Krazy Dee, Steffon, H.W.A., DJ Slip from Compton's Most Wanted, Young Hoggs, Blood of Abraham, K9 Compton and Tony-A. It should be noted that all of the key scenes were performed by another different actor, mostly not Anthony "Ant" because "Ant" never showed up for the video's most important filming day though he was fully paid in advance* LA Times. Ant, actually just disappeared for the most important filming day. Most think and it was widely reported that "Ant", Anthony was scared, afraid and fearful of repercussions from fans of the Dre camp.
