Dr. Dre, The Chronic (1992)

Label: Death Row/Interscope/Priority

Game: “You know how I want my list to look? The Chronic got to be by itself with no number, and then the list starts. The Chronic was just an incredible fucking album, man. It was so well put together. It was actually more of a fucking Snoop album. Snoop was on every song on The Chronic and shit. It was like Snoop’s introduction to the world.

“You think, ‘Damn, if I’m going to meet Dre, or I’m about to be signed to Dre, I’m going to ask him so many questions about the album.’ But I never had that conversation with him. Neither one of them, and I see them and talk to them all the time.”
