"Same Ol' G" is a song by R&B singer Ginuwine. It was first featured on the Dr. Dolittle soundtrack and later included on his second release 100% Ginuwine as his lead single. A music video was also filmed. While it did not chart officially on the Hot R&B Singles or the Hot 100 chart due to Billboard guidelines at the time, it was a Top 20 R&B Airplay hit on the strength of radio spins but charted on the lower reaches of the Hot 100 Airplay chart. "Same Ol' G" describes Ginuwine having matured from his days of clubbing, drinking and thugging with friends as he now has his own album deal and appearing on television, but insists that he hasn't changed. Producer Timbaland also contributed spoken adlibs throughout the song (primarily in between Ginuwine's sung verses).

The song was also sampled on the Tupac Shakur album, Tupac Duets: NY 2 Cali. This version featured Tupac, the original chorus and a verse from Kanye West.
