Freeway: ”Everybody loved The Chronic. That was a well orchestrated album from beginning to end. I just loved it, the way it was put together, Snoop Dogg. It was just a breath of fresh air at the time. It was another thing that made me want to be a rapper.

“I remember I had two radios, and I had one radio with the tape deck right here. I would play that tape and record with this radio me rapping over that, acting like I was down with them. I remember those days clearly.”
