"Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang" is a song by American rapper Dr. Dre featuring fellow American rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg from Dre's debut solo album, The Chronic (1992). It is the first single from the album. "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang" reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 on March 20, 1993, behind "Informer" by Snow, outperforming The Chronic's other singles, "Fuck wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin')", which peaked at #8, and "Let Me Ride", which peaked at #34. The single also reached #1 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart, and was a hit in the UK, where it reached #31.

The song was selected by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 songs that shaped rock and roll. XXL magazine named it the top hip-hop song of the decade. The song samples "I Want'a Do Something Freaky to You" by Leon Haywood. It was later reissued in June 1994 in certain European countries.
