During a night out on the town, Paul ultimately found himself crossing paths with the good Doctor at a restaurant. "I turned around and look and it was Dre," he reflects. "He shook my hand, and I was like 'yeah man, you know, I did a song called 'Ridin' Spinners,' I cleared the sample with ya'll' He was like 'what you doing after this?' It was his wife's birthday. I was like, 'shit man, I'm just chillin, what's crackin?' He called another restaurant on Sunset that wasn't even open. He got them to open up the bar, we went there, and Mike Tyson pulled up."
The pair proceed to have a laugh as Xzibit nods his approval. "Mike Tyson and Hits, you remember Hits from BET?" continues Paul. "I was like what the fuck is going on right now, this is the craziest party I've ever been to! That was probably one of the best nights of my life man, cause I grew up on NWA and Eazy."
