After not being given his fair share of money from Eazy-E & co, Dre went and made the infamous Death Row label. With help from Snoop, who appears on most of the songs, he produced his 1st Debut Album.
I listened to The Chronic a couple of times before I really appreciated it. All the beats are typical Dre masterpieces. F<uk with dre day is a classic, along with rat-tat-tat-tat. My advice is buy this before you buy Dre 2001, you'll appreciate it more. Then sit back, roll a big fat joint and wait for Dre's next album out later this year.

Dre's album is a superbly crafted and linguistically inspired piece of 90s rap. With the help of other gangsta rappers, most notably Snoop Doggy Dogg, Dre's tunes demand a convertible car and a big pumping stereo. Lay back and chill with some of the dopest beats yet. Quite simply a timeless classic that outclasses virtually every other rap record, including Chronic 2001. Dre will inspire you to move to LA, wear gold chains, gather bags of chronic, and chill with various 'women-folk'. Respek.

If you like old skool g-funk, this is where it all started. This album introduces some of the best rappers in the business to the big stage, RBX, Snoop, Kurupt, and the lady of rage among others. This album is way before its time, so if you like artists such as Snoop, ice cube and LA gangsta rap, if you don't already have this, go out and buy the damn thing, you WILL NOT be disappointed! Contains classic g-funk bangers like nuthin but a G thang, Dre day, stranded on death row and lyrical gangbang. I can't believe no-ones done a review on this, coz it needs to be known how good this is. So go out and buy it rap fans...

Ok. I am a hip hop fan and this album is ..... wicked. If you are thinking about buying it, stop thinking and just go and buy it. Its a couple of years old but, yo, the tracks are proper dope. It's not typical hip hop, its more of a mix of rap, soul funk and old skool but dre and snoop kill it on the album. Snoop is up Dr Dre's ass as he is featured on every track but he drops enuff dope lyrics on the whole album. The Intro is just gangsta-when u buy it, turn the volume up and blast the first track - it is proper ghetto gangsta ..... My fav bit on all of the album is 'A Nigga Witta Gun' when Snoop Dogg drops a verse at the end - 'BLAM BLAM, BLAM TO THE FALL, LISTEN TO THE SHOTS FROM A NIGGA DOGGY DOGG, ETC ETC. But overall most of the tracks are pretty good and I like all of them. But dont expect a host of modern jingles featuring Eminem cos the album was released in like 93, but dont let that put you off, the album is still standing and is still a number one classic hip hop cd. buy it! Compton style!

An immaculate album that emphasises the beats and lyrics that revolutionised West coast rap.This is far superior to '2001' and is on a level with both classic NWA lp's, whilst Snoop's rhyming throughout the album is his best! Dre's production as on this album will probably never be equalled, it is just a shame it was before 2pac's time on the greatest and most influencial of contemporary record labels(Death Row),as his presence may well have enhanced this album further.....if possible!!!
Tracks to look for are 'nuttin but a g thang', 'lil ghetto boy', 'let me ride' and 'f*ck wit dre day'......BUY IT NOW!!!

For many, this is the best Hip-Hop album of it's era. For me, this is just a fantastic record.
Although it isn't as influential as people think it is, each track is a classic. Dr. Dre is a genius, perhaps only rivalled by RZA when it comes to Hip-Hop production. His low-key funk samples suited his artists perfectly and whilst Dr. Dre's raps are usually below average, his beats make up for it.
Every track is as worthy as the next, and if this isn't already a part of your collection, I suggest you buy it immediately.
It may not be the best Hip-Hop album of all-time (as many Rock publications made it out to be), but it is certainly a 5-star record, and one worthy of your attention.

this album blasted Snoop Dogg into the rap scene and proved that Dre could still make the beats and produce the goods without Eazy E and NWA. Nuthin but a G thing is one of the best songs i have ever heard its first line is true brilliance" 1 2 3 and to the 4 Snoop Doggy dogg and Dr Dre is at your door" "let me ride" and "Wit Dre day" are just as good as this and the whole album proves the one thing everyone knew. Dre is the best producer on the mic. You have to have this album not only for Dre but for the sheer quality Snoop doggy dogg throws up on his debut.
