Talk about a dope album…
OK, sorry for that horrible pun. When Dre’s debut solo record came out in 1992, it was an instant classic. This album brought all of the best parts of everything he had ever done together in one complete work. Track for track, I don’t think it was possible for him to make a better record. Even the skits are classic (“The $20 Sack Pyramid,” anyone?).
But more importantly, people will remember this one for the not-so-clean break from Eazy and Jerry, the formation of Death Row, the introduction of Nate Dogg, the breakout of Snoop Doggy Dogg, and 3 huge hit songs: “Fuck Wit Dre Day, Let Me Ride, and Nothin’ But A ‘G’ Thang.” Monster.
