Product Description

Amazon.com

Despite the number of guests on hand, Dr. Dre's decade-/century-/millennium-ending sequel to The Chronic is, like its predecessor, less a stack of posse cuts and more an elegantly seamless work from West Coast hip-hop's premier auteur. Deliberately cinematic in everything from its mix of moods to dramatic musical surges, 2001 is Dre's assessment of the gangsta life in medium shots. No longer fully immersed in violence and random sex, yet aware of their attraction, he often lets his guests blow steam about whatever's on their minds. When he takes stock of gangbanging circa late '99, though, he drops his neutral tone; he even provides another half-joking but stern warning to protégé Eminem on "What's the Difference." Between his discovery of Slim Shady, visits from old pal Snoop Dogg, and, most of all, the masterful sound and flow of this CD, Dre should shut down all talk of his supposed irrelevance. --Rickey Wright

Pretty good lyrics on the song, and a nice beat.

Dr. Dre is back and proves in this album that he still has what it takes to make one of the best rap cds I've ever heard.

1. The Watcher (4/5)- It does have some interesting lyrics, and sets up for what will be the mood of the album, however the beat is rather sparse (although it does sound better the more I listen to it), especially coming from Dre.
2. F___ You (4/5)- The production is more vintage Dre, with the slinky synthesizer effect and heavy bassline. While it's a nice track (southern rapper Devin, comes off the best, providing a sloppy, yet tight hook), I can't give it a 5, since by 1999 I've heard one too many generic "I'm a pimp" songs.
3. Still D.R.E. (5/5) This is the best mesh of Dre's old style (apparent in the layered bassline) and his newer style (the pianos and violins instead of the synthesizers). Dre and Snoop both come in full force lyrically, aptly displaying that they never really fell off.
4. Big Ego's (5/5) Another great track, showcasing Dre's great use of piano keys, over a great bassline. Entertaining lyrics from Dre, while Hittman comes of especially nice on this track, overshadowing Dre lyrically (even though he probably wrote Dre's verse too).
5. XXplosive (5/5)- A laid back, acoutstic guitar laced, big pimpin' track, with an extremely tight beat. Dre comes along with Kurupt and Nate Dogg (who's singing goes perfect with the beat), which more than makes up for the tired subject matter. Reminds me of classic Death Row material.
6. What's The Difference (5/5)- An interesting horn laced beat. Dre speaks about his feelings towards MC Ren, DOC, and Eazy-E. Xzibit comes nice with some battle rhymes, but Eminem completely rips the track to shreds. The only problem with this track is that it lacks conception since everyone comes on a different subject, but it's too hot not to get a 5.
7. Light Speed (3.

Before Chronic 2001 came out I was still listening to the orignal "Chronic" and Snoop's "Doggystyle". I think fans were just growing impatient with the release of "The Chronic Pt.2". After listening to this CD you will see that it was worth the wait. Most of the original Death Row Inmates are absent, with the exception of Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg and Kurupt. Dre, through his music, still finds a way to provide a constant flow throughout the CD. This time around there is Hittman, Eminem, Xzibit, Ms. Roq and 6-2. Although the artists don't pack the punch of the original artists from "The Chronic", Dre's music makes you forget that. The gems are "What's The Difference" w/Eminem and Xzibit, "L.A. Niggaz", "The Next Episode" w/ Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, and Kurupt,"Forgot About Dre" w/Eminem and "Light Speed" w/Hittman. Overall Dr. Dre has conducted open heart surgery on the rap game. With upcoming releases from Xzibit, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and an N.W.A. Reuninon album in the works (With Snoop Dogg taking Eazy E's place), the doctor will be on call often in the year 2G.

This CD was my most anticipated of all time, and it DELIVERS! I have always loved Dre's production style, both on the Chronic album and on all the tracks he's produced between then and now. I've waited years, through rumors and delays, for this album to come out and now that I have it in my possession I can say that Dr. Dre is back in prime form! It's been 7 years since the Chronic, and it was worth the wait for this sequel, 2001. On first listen, every track instantly appealed to me. It has Dr. Dre written all over it. The beats were bangin' and the lyrics were tight. Dre has great chemistry with all the guests on the album, especially Snoop and Eminem.
There are certain clues as to judge whether an album has potential "classic" status: 1) Every time you listen to it, you appreciate the tracks more. 2) You get cravings to hear it often, and 3) You can't get the songs out of your head. Well, this album is all those things and I can see it becoming a definite hip hop classic! It's definitely the best rap album of '99. I would highly recommend it to any hip hop fan, especially if you like Dre's style.

First off, I love the fact that there's 22 tracks. They might not all be good, but in a world of 11 track pop "albums", this one stands out like Eminem's Slim Shady LP before it. I bet most of you guys are gonna buy this for Forgot About DRE, the catchiest piece of Rap since Naughty by Nature's JAMboree and 2PAC's Changes. It's a great song, and if you buy it based on that, you'll be satisfied with the rest. Before I go any further, I have to say that you must enjoy DRE's smooth delivery that accents Eminem's non-stop kiddie voice style to fully enjoy the album. Now, the best songs on this CD, besides FAD, are Still D.R.E., The Watcher, which is dedicated to DRE's baby bro who was killed by gunshot,The Message, and my absolute fav and the likely 3rd single, What's the Difference? Xzibit is somewhat of a find for DRE, because of his rough-voiced yet fluid delivery. There's alotta guestes on the CD, but you always know that DRE's presence is there. One of the best rap releases of 99, still one of the best in 2000.
