CAS Washington Dr. Dre ‘The Chronic’

Our final album of the year features Dr. Dre’s controversial ‘The Chronic’. Often regarded as one of the most influential albums of the Nineties, it established the modern sound of West Coast rap. A raw sound, heavily influenced by the Parliament-Funkadelic G-funk style, was married to slick pop hooks, resulting in a crossover smash and an important moment before rap became stratospherically popular later in the decade.

Importantly ‘The Chronic’ showed Dre’s ability as a manager as well as a performer-producer, following his breakout years in N.W.A.. With an cast of future stars including Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Nate Dogg, Lady of Rage, Suge Knight and Kurupt he created an album that became the slick, defining sound of a movement, and spotlighted a new generation of talent from California.
