"The Next Episode", also known as "Smoke Weed Everyday", is a single by American rapper Dr. Dre, released on July 4, 1999 as the third single from his second studio album, 2001, which was released in 1999. The track features Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, and Nate Dogg, the last being uncredited. It is a sequel to Dre's famous single from The Chronic, "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang".

The song peaked at number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100.


The song's main sample interpolates David McCallum's "The Edge", borrowing from a brief segment at the beginning of the song, repeated in the middle of the song and in the end sequence. The song was sampled by R&B trio City High for their 2001 hit "What Would You Do". It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 2001 for Dre and Snoop. The award, however, went to Dre and Eminem for "Forgot About Dre". The edit released for radio and music channels was heavily edited and had many re-recorded lines and muted censors as well as some removing the "Smoke Weed Everyday" part at the end which Nate Dogg says at the very end. Barry Bonds used the instrumental section before the first vocals as his plate appearance music for a period of time during the 2000s. The Seattle Mariners' Chone Figgins has used the instrumental as his walk-up music during the 2011 season.
