Contender for GOAT album. This album sounds so crisp. Dre’s mastering had reached its peak. Sonically I don’t think this album can be touched. Plus Dre brought that whole futuristic g funk sound that took over the early 2000s. So glad I own this on vinyl. I can write a book about this album but I’ll just leave it at that.
I remember my time getting high listening to this, while listening to “Light Speed” i heard a instrumental In the background that i never heard In the song after 10+ yrs of listening to it
Love this album especially Hittman stole the show
The D.O.C. was totally right in the interview, I think it was in 2008 or 2009 he said he don't see Dre gonna drop his album Detox cause the hell Dre gonna rap about in this hip-hop where the hip-hop pretty much changed.
IMO, I think The Game vs 50 Cent beef pretty much ruined the chance of Detox dropping.
Me too, I have a bunch of XXL,The Source, Vibe, Word Up! in my shoe boxes that I saved it for years then later on when I went to College and I threw them out
I was "interning" at a college radio station when my mentor got the F*ck You / Xxxplosive 12". I remember hearing it and was LEGIT blown away. Like someone said earlier, few times I knew the sh*t was certifiable classic from first listen.
Yeah I bought and read the Source religiously for YEARS when I was in junior high and high school (mid-late 90's). There was a time it was raw as fukk Star and Bucwild and articles about all kinds of crazy shyt.
Man I stay mad at myself for letting my collection of all them old magazines get thrown out when I moved like 15 years ago I started reading The Source in 8th grade, 1994, and it was required reading monthly for me until probably mid-2000 or so. That "Bible of Hip-Hop" shyt was the truth for a long time. I can't believe there aren't more scans of them out there or an online archive or something
I stopped reading the Source when they started editing the curse words out of it.
Explosive, west coast shyt was in 11 or 12th grade at the time
I remember hearing this shyt all over hot 97. Flex would play still dre like 100 times during his time slot. That and fukk you. I think I have a tape that I dubbed from 99 somewhere containing that shyt. Around the same time, flex was also about to drop the tunnel album with big kap. He was playing the eminem and dre "if I get locked up tonight" record. The fall and winter of 99 before y2k hit. Lol. Being hyped up playing rush 2 on n64.
Hittman was on fire on that album. Ackrite never gets the praise it deserves. One of my fav songs of all time.
This was my shyt right here Devin and Snoop destroyed this
I was at that show. They filmed the DVD in my city. shyt was absolutely bananas
