EU vinyl LP repressing of Dre's 1999 opus featuring guest turns from Eminem and Snoop Dogg. Universal.
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 --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Public Enemy, Run D.M.C., Wu Tang, N.W.A., and then the solo's from all Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr Dre and MC Ren were all great. I loved Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" so much, that I picked this up from eBay for $6, and it changed my views on new school rap. As I've said, I own albums of Bob Marley, The Clash, Rancid, Korn, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sex Pistols,...a wide variety. This album is just so honest and personal that you can't not like it. The beats are sick as well, but I like the whole family aspect of Dr Dre best. He brought Snoop Dogg into the industry, and he revolutionized rap with The Chronic, as well as Straight Outta Compton, and now, a 3rd time, with 2001.
Friends of his died, Eazy-E, Tupac... this CD is a tribute to them. Best CD in existance
My Favorite tracks are:
The Watcher (like how eminem did the chorus and dres rhymes just mix perfectly with his beats)
Still DRE (just a great song)
Forgot About Dre (know the song by heart and the beat is a masterpiece. eminems speed and perfect rhyme scheme make it excelent. my fav dre verses are in this song dre definatly shows full talent in this one)
The Next Episode (great beat awsome finish on this one, snoop and dre def hav great verses... just a classic to rap along to)
One more thing, i love Kurrupts verses i think hes got alot of skills but just not the full fame he deserves, would like to see more of him in the future along with his little brother Roscoe that released his album "Philaphornia" which i think was awsome and one of my best buys.
Definatly get this album not only does it show the rapper that started this game it shows the tru talent of many other artists out there.
"The Watcher" tells us about how time flows in rap business, "F*** You" is a sexual song featuring Snoop Dogg and Devin The Dude, "Still D.R.E." tells us he hasn't changed since The Chronic CD, "What's The Difference" features Eminem and XZibit, the lyrics don't tell much, but it's a great song. "Forgot About Dre", featuring Eminem, has one of the best lyrics of this CD, "The Next Episode" features old friend Snoop Dogg, no need to say they both kick ass, "Let's Get High" is hot, "B**** N****" tells us a little about people in the streets, wrong people. Every track in here is highly enjoyable, but the best ones are above.
This CD has the Clean and the Instrumental version too, but the explicit one is obviously the best. Clean rap CDs aren't rap, you loose so many things during the Clean process...
Overall, this is one of the 10 best rap CDs ever, a must for any music fan, absolutely worth your money. Great beats, great lyrics. That makes a great CD.
