In 1992, Snoop Dogg needed a ride to a studio session with Dr. Dre. Snoop Dogg’s cousin, RBX, gave him a ride and ended up being featured on Dr. Dre’s debut album The Chronic. The album peaked at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart.
Long Beach rapper RBX, who’s name stands for “Reality Born Unknown,” was featured on six songs on The Chronic, including “Let Me Ride,” “The Day the Niggaz Took Over,” “Lyrical Gangbang,” “High Powered,” “Stranded on Death Row,” and “The Roach” (The Chronic Outro). RBX eventually signed to Death Row Records with his cousins Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger of Tha Dogg Pound that same year of 1992, he left the label two years after.
“He said, ‘Man, I’m gonna come back when you get off work. I’m gonna need a ride.’ I said, ‘Where do you need a ride to?’ He said, ‘I need a ride to Dre’s house.’ And I say, ‘Ok, where does Dre stay?’ He said, ‘Just, like, on the other side of Hollywood.’ Lying through his teeth. Calabasas is not on the other side of Hollywood.“ —RBX explaining how the studio session came about in an interview with LA Weekly.
