Product Details

Product Description


How to follow the phenomenally-successful The Chronic album must have caused superstar rap producer Dr Dre more than a few sleepless nights. Five years on, for 2001 he's gathered a plethora of prime, new rap talent around him, including his prodigy-of-the-moment, Eminem, and Xzibit (who duet on boombastic anthem "What's The Difference?"); and is reunited with former compadres Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and MC Ren. While the lyrical preoccupations remain the same--sex, sess (marijuana), girls, guns and cars--the predictably flawless production has been cranked up way beyond the G-Funk formula that found him fame. "Still D.R.E." is driven by the persistent pluck of a harmonium; "Light Speed" is all spooky, retro-future funk; and "Forgot About Dre" boosts kinetic, Timbaland-style beats with insistent strings and squalls of guitar. All in all, there's more than enough on here to satisfy the hardcore that Dre is back and business is booming. --Chris Campion

By Evan S.
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
5/5 as long as sound quality is there which it is, 100% flawless.. i wish they had the lp open up or have some dre pictures and artwork and stuff. seems kind of cheap when there is just the 2 lp's stuffed in the sleeve. especially when at my local record store is 49.99 too (i got it on here)

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless May 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
Forget about who?? DRE, that's WHO! No matter how many wannabees or other real deals come up, Dr. Dre will still be listened to years from now as possibly the most influential person the rap industry has ever seen. We all know that Dre has been writing beats for Eminem and others while not doing much rhyming himself, but he is still boss when he spits it himself.
Dre 2001 has been out for awhile now, but for some stupid reason, I did not buy it until recently. No matter how much new rap I buy, Dre 2001 still is in the front row of my CD collection in the car. And it's not just Dre's raps that make this CD great, it's the wonderful compilation of the talent of other rappers joining in on Dre's classic beats that make this album really shine. Xzibit and Eminem highlight my favorite song of the album, "What's the Difference." And of course, Snoop Dogg makes appearances on this album, most excellently in the well-played "Next Episode" and "Still Dre."
There are countless other good songs on this album, including "The Watcher", "Forget about Dre", "Housewife", "Ackrite", ....wait a minute, I'm listing all the songs here.
Then again, that's the incredible final point about Dre 2001: every song on this album is listenable. It's one of those rare albums that you'll pop in your car CD player, and listen to from beginning to end. I sure hope this isn't Dr. Dre's last album, but if it is, he'll at least have convinced the world not to "forget about Dre."

3.0 out of 5 stars Dr.Dre 2001 July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think that this album is ok, but for sure, Dr.Dre can't touch Eazy E. I like the songs F*** You, Still Dre, and the next episode, but if you want some real gangsta rap, than just pick up an Eazy E album.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2001 [EXPLICIT LYRICS]
2001 [EXPLICIT LYRICS]~ Dr. Dre. Dre is not as good as snoop. But he is every bit the player, pimp and tough guy. His rapping is not as good but good enough for five stars.
