“Probably Pac in my eyes, but only because he’s passed away though,” said Dean. “If he wasn’t passed away, I’d probably say Scarface, Pac, Kanye, Jay Z. They’re all on another level. I really like Rick Ross a lot too.”
The Texas bred board master also collaborated with a lot of West Coast rap representatives such as Tha Dogg Pound and Nate Dogg.
“I was living in an apartment in West L.A., and Daz and Kurupt stayed with me a lot of the time. Nate would just come by and lay songs,” Dean revealed. “I’ve got like 8 unreleased Nate Dogg songs in my house. Actually, I just recovered them off old tapes.”
