Default The Chronic or Chronic 2001

Which album is better?

I'm going with Chronic 2001. There is no doubt its lyrically better, but I prefer the beats on Chronic 2001 as well. Some people might argue the whole pioneering aspect of The Chronic, but as an overall album, 2001 is superior. Forgot About Dre is the sickest shit ever.

NOTE: If you're gonna come in here with Dre hate, or some dumb shit about Dre doesn't produce or write his own shit, you can fuck off.

Em influenced Dre's flow for 2001. Xzibit was also on 2001. The track bitch niggaz was however remarkable.

I voted The Chronic. I had that album from day one. 2001 was released a bit too late for me but I still appriciate it. Yes , the production was a million times better on 2001. 2001 wasnt a straight P-funk rip either.


Tuff choice.

He was hungry for it. Dre was hungry for it. Snoop ended up getting fucked and in return stopped giving a fuck. Oh but Master P cared enough.

Tuff, but 2001. I think I did it because on Chronic is one good MC (Snoop) and on 2001 there is two (Eminem was there in his best phase, don't forget).

A very hard choice for sure, I do think that 2001 is lyricly superior but Chronic had the G funk sound at it's freshest plus they were more in touch with what they rhymed about rather than the follow up, also since the early ninties was my introduction to hip hop this being one of the factors towards my love of the culture im going to have to vote for the original.

2001 is one of my favorite hip hop albums, as far as production goes. wack MCs but the 2001 Instrumental LP is one of my top 5 rap lps.

The Chronic, EASILY.

Personally I can't see how people can like 2001 more. It has lost it's playbackability to me, whereas the original Chronic will forever be fresh as it was from day 1.
Also I think The Chronic has better guest appearances. Snoop was incredible on it, and ALL of the other guests layed it down so well, Stranded on death row is one of my favourites there, along with Lil' Ghetto Boy and too many to list to be honest.
It also kinda makes me mad when people say Nuthin' But A G Thang is one of the best hip-hop songs ever, I know it was influential and stuff, but theres songs that are so much better on the Chronic.


Anyway thats just my two cents.

I don't even see the two on the same level at all. The original is Dre's classic. period.

Come on now, what about them flutes on the day tha niggaz took over? They both classics in they own rite. Two totally different periods of time. They were both a breath of fresh air at their own times. Well...idk about 2001. We were already hearing some of that due to Dre's Em work. Before Chronic we hadnt really heard the full potential of G-funk yet. idk.....


Its still a tie so that speaks for itself. Most polls are lanslides.
