Yes. In most cases, dre doesnt necessarily play the instruments, he is more of a musical director. He leads the musicians to create a sound he wants.
Well, that's generally the role of the producer. The problem with rap is people fixate on who made the beat when it ain't really that important or at least, it's not the whole aspect of what being a producer is. For me, a greater discussion that kind of came and went without a whole lot of attention was that Crooked I freestyle track on that Death Row boxset that was credited as "produced by Dr. Dre". There to me was borderline false advertising. I can accept Dre as a credited producer on a track if he takes someone beat and adds his own layers to it, constructs the chorus, has a hand in either coaching the rapper or twisting the acapella, and puts his creative stamp of approval on the finished product. I don't think if a rapper takes a Dre instrumental and rhymes over it, that it's produced by Dre.

I'd venture to argue Dre had little to do with "Dogg Food". He obviously influenced it but by 1995, the basic concensious was Dre was not as heavily involved with Death Row as he once was. Outside of the well-documented issues from that time of Dre mostly working at his own in-house studio, there was a very visible creative shift around 1994 or so were the projects were moving in a much different direction. D.O.C. and RBX were gone. The projects that were coming out at that time were good but "Murder Was The Case" and "Above The Rim" were clearly not entirely overseen by Dre. I'm sure Dre was coaching Daz quite a bit at this point but "Dogg Food" is not a Dr. Dre-helmed project anymore than "All Eyez On Me" is.

As for the topic itself, there was a nearly-identical thread like two months ago. The West really needs more going on. We're still talking about albums from 1992-97 and the discussion is just redudant.



That last part is so true

Yeah yeah, it WAS Dre. Anyway, when the hell is Dre gonna produce his own damn record?! I swear, Dre's gonna die before he finishes Detox. And his will is going to read that he never wants it released. Talk about "forgot about Dre"..... that shit is literal now.

To answer your question. Yep, in my humble opinion this album is pure dr. dre all the way.
I think the sound of this album is the transition between the chronic/doggystyle era to the 2001 sound.

It's not discussing the albums that's the problem. It's the redudant conversations going on. Nothing new is being said in terms of threads. "Is Snoop overrated?". "Is Tupac REALLY underrated?". "Was Tupac a gang member?". "Was Tupac better than Snoop?". "Was Dre even that good of a producer?". "Is Dogg Food the best album of all-time?". "Do you think if Tupac was still alive, he would like cupcakes?".  Mix those up a bit and throw in some threads about how Detox is never coming out, Crooked I's never dropping an album, how much people hate Spider Loc and he's never coming out, how much people hate Game, how much people love Game, why Aftermath is overrated, and how much they hate this rapper who signed to whatever major label because he's never gonna drop a retail album for them to illegally download off the Internet and bitch about.

Why would we talk about any of those artists in "West Coast Connection Forum" anyway? It doesn't wash with me! While we're on the topic of played out, can we please retire the method of defending something by pointing to something that you know is pretty much universally-hated as a comparison? "Sure, this album wasn't classic but it's better than 99% of the stuff on the radio." I sure never get tired of reading that one! In other words, "Yes, this album sucks but it doesn't suck as much as these other albums that suck more".

Quoted 4 truth. Seriously, these forums are starting to just repeat harder then a diamond. G-Spot is getting redundant, Outbounds is crap, West Is just a Regurgitated piece of shit now. Seriously, people keep bitching about the same old shit, and no one is talking about all the new west coast shit. Hell this is just bullshit now. Fuck it.

hell yeah ..this album is NOT DR DRE sound ..yall may be young n's but this shit here was DAZ ...DAZ is the only fool who would make a beat like "i dont like to dream about getting paid" OR "cyco lic no"...dont even know why this thread was started..it clear yall dont know Dr Dre's sound and DAZ sound ..the sound is unique...Soopafly did keys .Daz produced the album and DJ Pooh did "smooth" and "ny ny" ..how come no one has posted that one MTV Raps clip where they were in the studio and Daz was producing this song ..



the song was still raw and uncut without all the instrumentals...oh yeah Dr Dre production ..he go harder with the kicks and snares(his shit is more head bobbing..sorta like East Coast and the shit is consistent not too complicated old skool). Daz is in the middle with more rythmn and his kicks and snares dont go as hard as the good doctors, he dont lean too much on the East coast...

Now chuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch 8)

You release a track, anyone can pick it apart and duplicate its sound (Chronic/Doggystyle is clearly a testament to this). Honestly all I know is he mixed the entire thing, but it was Daz but like usual it wasn't just Dre it was a combination of people. Like him in N.W.A. he had Eazy on Drums, Yella helping in the studio, but the overall production and sound was his.

Yeah, he didn't have anythin' to do with the production. In the NWA days Dr. Dre MADE the beats, even Yella said that.
