With 2001, Dr. Dre has managed to do the seemingly impossible: resurface yet again after a five-year disappearance from the rap game, and shatter all expectations. The first two tracks lull the listener into thinking this is going to be a mellow, G-funk outing, but when the piano loop and beat commence in "Still D.R.E.," it's obvious Dre is still light years ahead of the rest. The seemingly disparate styles of guest artists MC Ren, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem are all unified by Dre's singular musical vision.
What makes this record stand out from any other gangsta rap recording before it, however, are the flashes of brutal honesty that pepper the lyrics ("What's the Difference"). Something about Dre's persona and delivery softens his often misogynistic, violent lyrical content. It's as if the audience understands he's only posturing and knows that, deep down, he is a dedicated family man (something he proudly admits). Other standouts on this highly impressive return to the spotlight include "F*** You," "Big Ego's," and the self-explanatory "Still D.R.E."
Artist Overview
More than any other rap figure, Dr. Dre was responsible for moving away from the avant noise and political stance of Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions as well as the party vibes of old-school rap. Instead, Dre pioneered gangsta rap and his own variation of the sound, G-funk. With N.W.A he melded the noise collages of the Bomb Squad with funky rhythms. On his own, he reworked George Clinton's elastic funk into the self-styled G-funk, a slow-rolling variation that relied more on sound than content. When he left N.W.A in 1992, he quickly became the dominant force in rap thanks to his solo debut, The Chronic. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Spin (1/00, pp.119-20) - 7 out of 10 - "...If you like your G-funk ludicrous and lubricious, 2001 should rank high on your list of pleasures in the zero-zero....his ongoing commitment to formal excellence and sonic innovation in this art form may one day earn him a place next to George Clinton..."
Entertainment Weekly (11/19/99, pp.141-2) - "...The gangsta style that Dre pioneered is still going great guns....Dre's patented G-funk is as addictive as it was back when over 3 million record buyers got hooked on THE CHRONIC....reestablishes his mastery of the form..." - Rating: A-
Q (1/01, p.90) - Included in Q's "50 Best Albums of 2000".
Q (1/00, p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...the master of high-concept hip hop....The catchy, dramatic production and guest spots from Eminem and Mary J Blige are a joy..."
Muzik (1/00, p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...another highlight to his career....the Doc slides into low-slung grooves and pungent atmospheres born of someone who's been around long enough to view streetlife from a shrewd, singular perspective..."
CMJ (12/13/99, p.26) - "...harvests another potent bushel of sonic chronic....perfects beats through the use of session musicians and programmed samples....It's Dre Day now more than ever."
Vibe (1/01, p.101) - Voted as "Album of the Year" in The 2000 Vibe Of The Year Awards - "...Proved that [he] hadn't lost his Midas touch..."
The Source (1/00, pp.185-6) - 4.5 mics out of 5 - "...a sumptuous millenial appetizer....the bar is raised 10 times higher than for any rap artist/producer....no fast forward factor....makes gangsta sound so crystal clear and futuristic....[He] is still the king of this s*** here."
