Buy a Dre album, and check out the names in the credits.

Full Review: The Chronic

Saying The Chronic is an influential album is an understatment. G-Funk still is used by many producers today. This also introduced Death Row (Snoop Doggy Dogg, Nate Dogg, Dogg Pound, RBX, Lady of Rage) and put them on the map.

The Chronic comes hard with "F*ck Wit Dre Day." This song is the memorable and vicious diss song aimed at Eazy-E, Luther Campbell, and Tim-Mut. Snoop and Dre come with cold lyrics. This also includes Snoop's famous lyrics, "Bow wow wow, Yippe Yo Yippe Yay" (Lil' Bow Wow tried to copy this, but sucked). Behind the boards, Dre brings blowing-speakers G-Funk. This is how a diss song should be done (Not used repetitively like 50 and Ja).

Dre is solo on "Let Me Ride" (besides Snoop at the ends of the verse). Dre uses synthesizers which are a bit slower than "Dre Day." He uses a sample from Parlament's "Mothership Connection" for the chorus. Dre's ghostwriters are above average on this song. Mainly, the beat shines here.

"The Day the N*ggaz Took Over" is focused on the LA Riots occuring at the time. Snoop's hook on this song is catchy. This is not the best songs on the album, but is still worthy to listen too.

I am sure you've heard of "Nuthin' But A "G" Thang." Once Snoop's speaks his first rhymes, you are hooked. The beat is a haunting G-Funk beat. Dre's ghostwriters do great here. A Classic.

"Deeez Nuuuts" is a significant song because this is Nate Dogg's earliest appearance I can find. The hook that he delivers is amazing. That hook makes him the MVP on this track (although Snoop does a great job here as well).

The D.O.C. does an amazing job on Dre's verse in "Lil' Ghetto Boy." He and Snoop's storytelling skills are above amazing. As for the beat, it gives you a jazzy feeling. Pure Classic.

From the first sounds of "Rat-Tat-Tat-Tat" makes you feel like a BDP "Stop The Violence." But if you have been listing to the album or know that it is a Death Row album, you know that Dre will come hard (as he does). Snoop's chorus is one of the catchiest in rap history. A great song.

Although "$20 Sack Pyramid" is a skit, listen to it. It is one of the few skits on a rap album that will make you laugh.

Dre decides to stay behind the boards on "Lyrical G*ngbang." He showcases the talents of Kurupt, Lady of Rage, and RBX. Each one of them does a excellent job. No chorus, but still a classic.

Skipping ahead to my favorite track on the album, "Stranded On Death Row" is a classic. Dre stays behind the boards again with the same format of "Lyrical G*ngbang." Each rapper is on "death row" on this track. Snoop delivers his best verse of his entire career. Pure Classic!

If you were expecting an album with a variety of subject matter, you will be dissiponted. This is a party album with some great lyrics but get repetitive. However, this is one of the best albums of all-time because of the beats, so get it.

For those that don't know, here's a definition of a ghostwriter -- 'One who writes for and gives credit of authorship to another'. The practice of ghostwriting in hip-hop has always carried a certain stigma. That is to say that no self-respecting MC would be caught dead reciting rhymes written by someone else. Yet we know the practice takes place. Jay-Z once told Vibe magazine that "I get paid a lot of money to not tell you who I write for." It's widely known that Dr. Dre's lyrics have been written by The D.O.C., Ice Cube, Snoop, Jay-Z, Eminem, etc.

10-14-2004, 10:45 PM
And Ice Cube wrote the verse for California Love. The song was supposed to be Cube and Dre, but Suge said to give it to Pac. Or pac asked, one or the other. Anyway, Dre has had alot of people write for him. D.O.C, Snoop, Hittman, Stat Quo for Detox, and many more. The only difference between most rappers who have their lyrics wrote for them and Dre is that Dre plays a bigger role in the content and how it should sound.

Royce da 5'9 also wrote for Dre:

- The Way I Be Pimpin'

- The Throne is Mine

even though dre is ghostwritten, it doesnt really affect how i rate him, he is NOT by any means a rapper/ lyricist, hes a producer, but manages to rhyme aswell. the way he puts across these verses does work and i do regard him as one of the greats.

When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isnít lifting himself up, heís pushing the Earth down.

Dre has a nice west coast voice, which is really easy to listen to, thats the only reason why I'm listening to him at the moment. And judging by all the proof up there I'd say Dre does use ghost writers and alot of them..........

Pharoahe Monch ghostwriting 2 of Diddy's songs is the only thing that has ever made that dude sound dope. Pharoahe is one of the greatest

I find it hilarious when people name Eazy-E as one of the greatest of all time. Dude couldn't even say lyrics written for him in under like 20 takes
