You can add Devin the Dude’s name to the long list of rappers who owe their careers to Dr. Dre. The Houston rapper recently stopped by the XXL offices to talk about the impact of appearing on the good doctor’s 2001 album.

…When Devin received a call from the West Coast producer in 1999 to be on the one night stand anthem “Fuck You,” it gave the Dude a sense of purpose. “When Dre came along and asked me to be a part of [2001] it really uplifted me, man, and let me know I was here for some type of reason. He told me he used to listen to our music with the Odd Squad back in the day when him and Snoop was on the first Chronic tour and that just put so much fuel in me, man…I was like, ‘Oh, okay, cool, man. I’ma just try to go at it full throttle.’” – XXL
