EDITORS’ NOTES

“Now it’s time to make my impression felt/So sit back, relax, and strap on your seat belt.” Fact: Dre’s solo debut is one of the greatest albums ever. With his charismatic protégé Snoop Doggy Dogg riding shotgun, the rapper/producer cruises Compton in his ’64 Chevy—tossing verbal shots, living it up, and delivering social commentary. The mix of mellow tempos, catchy melodies, and menacing vibes elevated the G-funk sound and was so fresh that it altered pop-culture—bringing gangsta rap to the mainstream and suburban streets.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Best Gangsta Rap Album Ever!

I knew that there was something missing on iTunes. The Chronic. What can't be said about this album? It's great. It's off the hook. It's possibly the best produced album of all time. Snoop was introduced to the world. It started one of the most infamous record labels, Death Row. All and all, if you don't have this in your collection you don't know nothing about hip hop or rap.

Pac, Nas, Jigga ,
