As a matter of fact, I was listening to 2001 a couple days ago. Fresh sounding West Coast beats at the time with some G-funk influence on some songs (with that signature synthesizer) like on "Light Speed", "What's the Difference", "Some L.A. Niggaz", and "Housewife".

Some of the skits weren't necessary in my opinion, and like I've said before:
Quote
Hittman doesn't stand-out. He sounds as if Dre was walking through the streets one day and said, "Hey, you wanna rap?"
He's plain as fuck.

Amazing, classic album.  Like many have said here: It was way ahead of its time, and still sounds totally fresh today...and that is after listening to it hundreds of times...some songs probably 1000+ times.  Definitely no album has topped it since its release, and I personally don't think Dre can top it w/ Detox.

maybe my favorite album ever... I bought it back in 2001 and it was one of my first CD's I ever copped when I first started getting into rap  8)

Beats - impeccable. Dre was unfuckittable at the time (and imo still is)

As far as the raps... ehh.... if you replaced Hittman and Ms Roq with more Snoop/Xzibit/Dogg Pound/Ren/Cube/Knoc/DOC/Warren G/Six-Two it'd be a much better listen for me.

Still classic either way.

I used to hate on Hittman but he had soo many dope lines when you listen I don't mind him being on there. Only downer was that Ice Cube didn't feature on a track!

Classic album! Can't believe its 10 years old. I remember when I got it, Me and my cousins bumped this hard on CONSTANT repeat playing goldeneye on Nintendo 64, (those were the days lol).

Even some of the skits don't grow old, I'd pay for an album full of Snoop Dre, d.o.c and co clowin in the studio.

Fuck You= the funkiest beat ever, PURE porno shit.  8)

Only tracks I don't really listen to these days is Murder Ink and Whats the Difference.

It was the 2nd album I ever downloaded in mp3 from mirc using xdcc. on 56k took me over 4 hrs (the album was only imported 3 weeks later down under). I remember it took a lil while to get used to at first as it was not the typical west coast dre sound he had been using, but after a few listens i really got into it and soon after many others did down here too

Fuck You- The 1st song I had seen with Snoop on it. That was after the split from Death Row for both Snoop and Dre and for me the 1st time hearing them back together other than Still D.R.E. When Devin finished his verse and Snoop came right in after that= classic.

Was the original version of "Zoom" recorded while they was still both on Death Row?

Probably was but back then you would not hear a song until the album dropped. The 1st time I heard Zoom was the version with LL Cool J on it. Unless a DJ leaked a track on the radio or something or you bought a bootleg from somewhere. So back when this dropped, that was the 1st official song I seen with Dre and Snoop other than Still D.R.E.

Heres the story as I read many years ago from an interview. Snoop was still on Death Row and really didnt have no beef with Dre once Pac died and Suge was in jail. I think theres even a pic of Daz, Snoop, B-Real and Dre hanging out at Dres playing Playstation or something.

Snoop and Dre thought it would be cool to do a reunion track and possibly an album called "Break Up to Make up" (thus why on Snoops verse of zoom original he says that in the first line). Death Row put a stop to it and wouldnt allow Dre to release the song with there artist on it, which was the last straw for Snoop, who immediately tried to escape death row, eventually finding a bidder to buy him from Death Row.

Since Dre couldnt use Snoop, he got LL on it and they released it on the Bulworth soundtrack

Was that before Daz Dillinger started dissin Dr. Dre?

This was certainly one of the albums - if not the album - that solidified my love for Hip-Hop. My big brother bought this, but it only took about a month before I hogged it for myself entirely.

The record still sounds as fresh today as it did when it came out. Even though I got a couple hundred records by now, there's only a handful that are like that. Still bumping this shit, not looking like I'm gonna get tired of it anytime soon either.

Cant be certain to be honest but definately post death row coz Dre started messing with B-Real and Muggs round 96-98 for a bit plus playstation wasnt out until like 96 was it?

Never got the hype about Six-Two. He barely dropped any bars on that album and they weren't any better than Hittman's rhymes.

it's his rapping style, but i agree with you that he was barely featured

Hitt might be be better lyrically but he just sounds boring. Doesn't have the X-factor in his voice/performance.
