Make mine The Chronic
Next on the Good Advice list of suggested listening is Dr. Dre's 1992 gansta-funk opus The Chronic. A venerable hip hop classic among gangster rap aficionados, this album introduced me Snoop Doggy Dogg, and Dat Nigga Daz, two of my favorite rappers to this day. I had this album on tape, cd, and now mp3. The fact that I've been listening to it for twenty years should say enough. For some reason I still have to argue this albums "gangsterness" with my homie Mr. Foulstyles. With songs like "A Nigga Witta Gun", "Rat-Tat-Tat-Tat", and "Stranded on Death Row" it's gangster is not to be questioned. I don't know about Foulstyles sometimes... but I'm sure I don't have to remind you of this albums place in rap history. With that said, if you've never listened to The Chronic (and I don't know why you had not), do it today. That's some Good Advice.
