Products / Dr. Dre - 2001
[West coast hip hop / rap] Released seven years after his solo debut release, The Chronic, this album is Dr. Dre's masterpiece. It features guests like Snoop Dogg and Eminem, and is loaded with lyrics that lean heavily towards the more "gangsta" rap side of hip hop. Many found those lyrics objectionable, but they speak of an experience. An experience Dre lived and articulates brilliantly here, both musically and in rhyme. Highlight track: 'Forgot About Dre'
