The song was never Alicia Keys. Interscope/50 cent wanted rihanna or ester dean on the hook originally. Alicia then said she wanted to be on it, so they sent her the song she recorded it and swizz put out the song early without their permission.
Dre don't produce a lot of beats. He's pretty much just a knob twister on the mix board. Not to take away from doing that cause mixing a record is hard as f***. The original producer for a lot of dres s*** is a dude called focus or focis. If you hear his beats it has Dre written all over it. My homey in LA produces a lot of s*** for people like B Real at dres studio. He produced some s*** for that dude young Knox who ghost wrote a verse for that song The Doctor for dr Dre (look it up on YouTube).
"i would rather hear the security guard walked into the room and saw KEEF hear banging brazilian hookers while they watching scarface on repeat with GUCCI MANE blasting in background.... instead a bunch of dudes smoking weed and trying on high end…"
