Hardy Enters His Bartending Era on ‘Gin and Juice’ Cover

“I’m still in disbelief,” the country musician said about being asked by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre to record the hit to launch the OG artists’ new drink

Hardy‘s mama ain’t home, which means it’s time to party. The country musician served up “Gin and Juice” with a twist on his newly-released cover of the Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre classic. The cover fuses country-rock with California rap as Hardy lays out the itinerary for his night with the boys: roll down the street smoking indo, shoot some deer with the bullets filling up his pockets, and throw back some G&Js.

“A while back, I got a phone call saying that Jimmy Iovine, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg would like for me to record my own version of ‘Gin and Juice’ for the launch of their new drink, Gin&Juice,” Hardy shared in a statement. “I’m still in disbelief, but I am so stoked that I’m dropping my version of ‘Gin and Juice’ with the blessing of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg themselves. Thankful for the opportunity.”

Hardy kept the structure of “Gin and Juice” as a foundation for his own spin on it, which name-dropped some friends and flipped Snoop Dogg’s “Gs up, hoes down while you motherfuckers bounce to this” with “Gs up, hoes down while you rednecks bounce to this.” In this version, the drink Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre took in the middle of the street is now swallowed down on an old back road — but his mind is still on his money and his money is on his mind.

Hardy will explore more of this rock sound — and potentially less of the rap sound — on his as-yet-untitled forthcoming studio album. Two songs from the record, including “Rockstar” and “Quit,” have already been released.

Earlier this year, Hardy performed at the Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace Big Game After Party at Encore Beach Club inside Wynn Las Vegas. The massive, star-studded Super Bowl after party was hosted by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.
