    I remember a Source article where they said when they played "Deez Nutz" during the Naughty By Nature "Hip Hop Hooray" video shoot that people were mesmerized especially to Nate Dogg's part cause it was like nothing they ever heard before.

    In 1992 I was 13. Living in Pennsylvania. The anticipation for both albums was unreal. This was pre internet so the only way you heard any songs before the albums dropped was on radio or MTV. I remember when I finally got the Chronic album, "Dre Day" was uncensored with different lyrics. Had to learn the curse words :russ:

    My grandma got me Doggystyle for Christmas of 1993. It was all anyone listened to. Good times.

    I have to assume that the fastest selling album of all times in any genre at the time generated the same reaction across the board. Like how 50 cent and Eminem weren’t bound to regions

    shyt took over. It was the first time hardcore west coast rap was played on the radio over here. Up until then we heard all the west coast shyt by watching music videos. Of course there was MC Hammer and Digital Underground but that’s about it. Everything changed over night. All of a sudden Just Like Compton and Indo Smoke was on the radio

    nikkas like Domino :russ:

    I was in the 6th grade. We instantly went from asking our parents for Cross Colors to asking for flannel

    I would say this is true of Doggystyle but not really The Chronic. We got on it but we're a bit late to the party in NYC. I remember hearing the Chronic album around Christmas from a friend who just loved gansta shyt no matter where it was from but no one else was really into it. What sold it was BET and MTV and by the following summer everyone was feeling it and anticipating Doggystyle like the rest of the nation.

    I had seen the album at the Wiz lol when it came out in December of ‘92 but didn’t get it until springtime ‘93 when the singles really took off on Hot 97...Doggystyle was an instant cop when it came out in November...I would say the West Coast took over the airwaves here but by ‘95 the East Coast and NYC rap had come back
