At one time, Dr. Dre needed no introduction. When it came time to drop his second album, he definitely did. Sure, Eminem's sudden success was what ultimately guaranteed Dre's return to the pantheon, but it was "Still D.R.E." that established the link between Dre's past and future. Snoop was back in the 'lac, the low-riders were still on Crenshaw. Only now, Hype WIlliams, rather than Dre himself, was behind the lens. The West Coast swagger remained.
