About this item
'One, two, three and to the fo', Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr Dre is at the Do' - AH 'The Chronic' was the cornerstone of Death Row's initial success when it was released in 1992. The impact of major hits such as 'Nuthin But A G Thang' was astounding. Suddenly hip-hop was on US national radio gaining wide spread acceptance in the smoother life style of the suburbs world wide for its very special message, style and rhythm generated in the tough surroundings of the LA ghettos.
It was Dr. Dre's first solo album after he had departed from NWA and its label Ruthless Records over a financial dispute. On 'The Chronic', he included both subtle and direct insults at Ruthless and its owner, former NWA member Eazy-E. Although a solo album, it features many appearances by Snoop Dogg, who used the album as a launch pad for his own solo career.
