"Die Muthafucka Die" is a song by Dr. Dre that was originally intended to be a track for his debut album The Chronic, but was cut from the final version of the album due to Dr. Dre being focused more on the song Deep Cover with Snoop Dogg for the movie of the same name. A remix featuring YGD Tha Top Dogg was made for the Death Row compilation album Suge Knight Represents: Chronic 2000, but was also cut from the final version due to legal issues from Dr. Dre.
The remix was leaked in 2016 and is available on YouTube to listen to. However, the original version cannot be found anywhere. It has been said that the original version has been left unfinished with only 2 verses recorded. It is unknown if the remix instrumental was also used for the original.
