Along with Mel-Man and Scott Storch, Mike Elizondo served as a protege to Dr. Dre, beginning with his contributions on bass to the West Coast Don's 1999 album, 2001. A year later, he was again working alongside Dre for Xzibit's Restless and even managed to score co-production accolades for three tracks appearing on Snoop Dogg's Tha Last Meal. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
