Dr. Dre's classic hip-hop album "The Chronic". Here's where it started for many top rappers, including Snoop Doggy Dogg, Dat Nigga Daz, Kurupt, Nate Dogg and Warren G. The album redefined West Coast rap as it showed how commercially successful rap artists could be.
The Chronic is the highly influential debut album from American rap producer Dr. Dre, released in 1992. It is noted for popularizing gangster rap and West Coast hip hop. Its peak position was #3 on the Billboard Charts and went on to sell 4 million copies with chart-breaking hits. The album was named after a slang term for premium grade cannabis. The album cover itself is a homage to Zig-Zag rolling papers. It is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential albums of the 1990s.
Having split from N.W.A., Dr. Dre's first solo album established him as one of the biggest rap stars of his era. The Chronic brought the genre now known as G-funk to the mainstream — a genre defined by slow bass beats and melodic synthesizers, topped by P-Funk samples, female vocals, and a laconic, laid-back lyrical delivery referred to as a "lazy drawl". The Chronic featured both subliminal and direct insults to Ruthless Records and its owner, Dr. Dre's former N.W.A. group mate Eazy-E.
The album is also credited with launching the careers of several prominent West Coast hip hop artists, including Snoop Dogg, Dat N**** Daz, Kurupt, Nate Dogg, and Warren G, Dr. Dre's half-brother, — all of whom went on to pursue successful commercial careers. The Chronic is widely regarded as the album that re-defined West Coast rap , demonstrated gangsta rap's commercial potential as a multi-platinum commodity, and established G-funk as the most popular sound in hip hop music for several years after its release, with Dr. Dre himself producing several major albums that drew heavily on his production style. Furthermore, the album's success established Death Row Records as a dominant force in 1990s hip-hop.
The Chronic was included in VIBE's "100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century Vibe", ranked #137 in Rolling Stone's list of "Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", and was also listed in Rolling Stone's "Essential Recordings of the '90s". Furthermore, the album ranked #8 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s", and in 2005 it was ranked #35 in the "100 Greatest Albums, 1985-2005" list by the same magazine. It was even ranked #6 in VIBE's "Top 10 Rap Albums of All Time". The album was also retroactively given a score of 5 mics from The Source magazine, making it a classic album (it received 4.5 mics in its original review). In 1998, the album was selected as one of "The Source Magazine's 100 Best Rap Albums". On the Billboard Music Charts (North America) album lists, The Chronic hit #1 R&B/Hip-hop and #3 Pop. Also, some critics claim that The Chronic is the best produced hip-hop album of all time.
The singles "**** wit Dre Day (and Everybody's Celebratin')" and "Nuthin' but a "G" Thang" are in best-selling video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, on the fictional radio station Radio Los Santos. All songs are produced by Dr. Dre and he featured the great great AWIN.
