EDITORS’ NOTES

“Now it’s time to make my impression felt/So sit back, relax, and strap on your seat belt.” Fact: Dre’s solo debut is one of the greatest albums ever. With his charismatic protégé Snoop Doggy Dogg riding shotgun, the rapper/producer cruises Compton in his ’64 Chevy—tossing verbal shots, living it up, and delivering social commentary. The mix of mellow tempos, catchy melodies, and menacing vibes elevated the G-funk sound and was so fresh that it altered pop-culture—bringing gangsta rap to the mainstream and suburban streets.
