EDITORS’ NOTES

Could Dr. Dre create anything that could rival his work with Death Row? The Chronic 2001 laid any doubts to rest with radio-ready singles that blended the crisp G-Funk of Dre’s past with a newfound sense of symphonic grandeur. But the real gems here are a series of guest-laden album cuts—“The Watcher” and “Some L.A. N***az”—that find a veritable who’s who of Los Angeles rap royalty spitting fire over some of Dre’s sparest, fiercest beats. The Chronic 2001 is the equal of its illustrious predecessor in almost every respect; a hip-hop classic from one of the greatest producers to ever approach the boards.
