    2001 has some corny sounding shit to me on it.

    CHRONIC says it all in the name!!!
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.

    I give it 4/5, because as a whole it sounds to me so monotone, that's why i prefer 2001

    exactly how I feel

    The Chronic is classic, but 2001 is on some other level type shit

    ^^ truth right there^^

    Dre's direction in 2001 was to appeal to a younger, more mainstream audience and it came off a little cheesy IMO.

    I was in highschool when The Chronic came out...Straight FIRE...It was effortlessly some of the best of West Coast Hop in the early 90's.

    Anybody got Deathrow Greatest Hits or Concrete Roots?

    haha, bought Concrete Roots from a Strawberries back when it dropped and brought it back an hour later asking for my money back. They asked why and I said "cause it fucking sucks".....i think i bought Vitalogy with that loot....still better than concrete roots

    that Death Row Greatest Hits 2CD comp was bomb though, the second disc was mostly remixes but a few good ones, first disc had some gems that really didn't get shine...like maybe my favorite track on Chronic.....Stranded on Death Row

    Chronic 2001 was boring as fuck. Cold 187um made better beats on above the law's legends album. The chronic is a classic to me. Dre was in his prime with the beats, snoop sounded so tight when he first came out and you could tell that the whole death row camp was hungry as fuck. The chronic and uncle sam's curse are two of my favorite hip hop albums ever. Chronic 2001 had some decent beats but the mc's came off wack as fuck to me.

    Thank You

    I feel the same way about the 2001 album, although I really thought the beats were incredible, but the half assed rapping on the album kills the replay value on it

    Eminem & Xzibit were the Only MC's who showed up to work on the album, other then that what did you have???

    Hittman??.........Ms. Roq???.............Six-2??............Time Bomb???

    Who the fuck are they??.........I dont think its a coincidence that were never heard of them before this record, and we never heard from them again after this record

    Not to Mention Kurupt phoned in the absolute worst performance of his career on "Xxxplosive"...........

    "Bitch Nigga, Your more of a Bitch then a bitch"

    Always thought that album was grossly overrated
