(Quick Review #36)
Listen: #5

I have a whole lot of stuff to catch up on. At least 10 records I've listened to I haven't put up a review for. Now to start with The Chronic. This album is a classic, its The Chronic. While I pesonally prefer Doggystyle this is still a great record. I feel that people who say this started G-Funk didn't listen to Niggaz4Life by NWA, which had a lot of the beginings of this production style by Dre. But that doesn't make this album any worse. It's a great album to just put on and enjoy. Some filler tracks but it doesn't take away from the album too much.

How come there's no extra 'g' in Snoop Dog's name on the original album cover? Was it misspelled or did he change his name?

My favorite shit !

Where's the 5 or better yet the 10 rating!! Absolutely one of the best breakthrough hip-hop albums ever! While most crossovers had to have the watered down mainstream hook, Dr. Dre kept it real, hard, and probably wasn't expecting this album to do as well as it did. The skits are absolutely ridiculous funny.Songs are all tight and engineered to perfection with samples from P-Funk Allstars layered with Dr. Dre's talent. The lyrics are solid from delivery to content. You can party and still hear the serious side which is a direct representation of hip hop culture.West Coast represent!!
