1989's Straight Outta Compton, by Dre's previous outfit N.W.A., may have shined the public spotlight on the genre, but The Chronic legitimized it. That is not to say that Snoop Doggy Dogg (The Chronic marks his debut) and Dre's raps are for everyone; the subject matter is the sex, drugs, violence, and politics of South Central Los Angeles, and the phrasing is explicit, to say the least. But The Chronic's real genius is the music. By breeding hip-hop, jazz (studio instrumentation includes saxophones and flutes), funk, and soul (sampled artists include Parliament, Donny Hathaway, and Isaac Hayes), Dre creates downright intoxicating grooves. If you can't feel The Chronic pulsating through your veins, maybe your heart's not pumping. --Bill Crandall

But the description has the format listed as "LP Record" when it is actually a "Japanese reissue packaged in a miniature LP sleeve"
IT'S LIKE THIS, THAT AND THIS AND UH...
When one thinks of innovative rap music, one must consider Doc Dre - on the real; realer than real deal Holyfield, in fact. Dre is like the Mutt Lange of the rap world, except he boldly exposes himself everywhere in the process of making records. "Da Chronic" is where it all began for Dre.
IT'S LIKE THAT AND LIKE THIS AND LIKE THIS AND UH...
Music for the masses made by a master and his accompanying "dogg" cohort, Dre and Snoop "da Godfather" Doggy Dogg are going to be the Rolling Stones of the rap 'n' roll world.
SO JUST CHILL, 'TILL THE NEXT EPISODE...
Dre and Snoop's chemistry was one of the things that attracted fans to "The Chronic". Snoop's laid-back flow mixed perfectly with his production mentor as they went back and forth on classic records like "Nuthin' But A G-Thang", "B--ches Ain't Sh-t" and "Lil' Ghetto Boy". Dr. Dre was out to prove he could make it on his own with this solo endevor and he succeeded on every level possible. Along the way, Dre took some time out to diss his former N.W.A. ally, Eazy-E, on "F--kin' With Dre Day". Eazy wasn't the only one on the Death Row "hit list" as Dre and Snoop also took shots at 2 Live Crew's Luther Campbell and New York rapper Tim Dog.
Snoop wasn't the only Dr. Dre protege who made a name for himself with "The Chronic". Kurupt's opening verse on "Stranded On Death Row" is to this day, one of the very best guest verses I've heard. The hilarious Warren G phone conversation that opens up "Deeez Nuts" is just absolute comedy. The track itself is amazing as well with Nate Dogg crooning along as a young Daz steps to the mic. To be honest, every track on this album sounds like a single in one way or the other.Read more ›
Anyway, this is a classic album and is a must-have for anyone who appreciates American pop music. 5 stars beeeyotch!
Album Highlights: The ENTIRE album, no filler on this one.
Production: Thumbs WAY up, Dre at his supreme best.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up.
Originality: Thumbs up.
The Last Word: This album is SO AWESOME,from start to finish. Everything you could possibly want out of a gangsta album, THIS IS IT. There will NEVER AGAIN be an album this powerful in hip hop, especially in today's hip hop. Dr.Dre himself would have to word TRIPLE overtime to produce another CLASSIC like this. Overall, one of the STRONGEST recommendations EVER.

First off this is a great album. It's in my top 5 for sure and I'm not even usually a gangster rap fan. Read morePublished on Sept. 16 2011 by Jimbo Jones
I purchased this product back in the day on tape. It is such a superior piece of hip hop music history that I had to have it in disc format. Read morePublished on Feb. 7 2009 by Jase Rhodes
I've had this album for years. This is where real rap comes from. These new "rappers" have nothing on Dre. He's an original (N.W.A.). Read morePublished on July 19 2005 by Amanda
