"You Know How We Do It" is the second single from Ice Cube's fourth studio album Lethal Injection. It was released as a 12" single on February 2, 1994. A G-funk hit which has the same kind of mood and feeling from The Predator, it samples "The Show Is Over" by Evelyn Champagne King and uses an interpretation of "Funky Worm" by The Ohio Players. Eventually Mariah Carey sampled "You Know How We Do It" in her song Irresistible (Westside Connection) from her 2002 album Charmbracelet. At the time of the album's release, sales were poor; in part by Dr. Dre and other Death Row artists dominating the radio stations. Although Lethal Injection received poor reviews by critics, this single stoodout from the rest of the album and was considered a West Coast classic. It was later featured on the Ice Cube's Greatest Hits album.

The song is also featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto V, created by Rockstar Games.
