Produced by Daz Dillinger, “Got My Mind Made Up” was originally created for Tha Dogg Pound’s debut album, Dogg Food, and featured The Lady of Rage along with Redman, Method Man, and the same Inspectah Deck vocals featured on this version.

But when 2Pac was released from prison and went to work on his album, he was offered the song and gladly accepted, replacing Rage’s verse with his own. According to Daz, this song contributed to the rift between 2Pac and Dr. Dre:

I had transferred it at Dr. Dre’s house and had left it out there. [Tupac was] flossing like, ‘I got a beat with Method Man, Redman. Dre made it.’ That’s what Dr. Dre told 2Pac. That’s how the whole feud started between Dre and ‘Pac. ‘Cause I happened to be walking by the studio like, ‘That’s my beat. I did that.’ Tupac [was] like, ‘That’s your stuff?’ From that situation, that’s when he and Dre started feuding. Dr. Dre was taking credit and wasn’t doing nothing, wasn’t coming around.
