Next Friday (12/15) will mark the 25th Anniversary of the release of Dr. Dre's The Chronic. You can argue about the "greatest album of all-time;" but you can't argue that this is MY FAVORITE album of all-time.
Deconstructed, reconstructed, and broken-down like only the man who unofficially holds the title for most Chronic listens can. A couple of interesting side notes about the album and me. My first residency was located directly across the street from the studio where Chronic was recorded (I had no idea until years later). There is a Popeye's Chicken located on the corner of Hollywood and Cahuenga where I would go to use the bathroom before my gigs, and where I would go to sober up before going home (personal highlight was seeing my childhood crush, Idalis eating there). I would come to find out later via docs and interviews that Snoop, Daz, Kurupt and the gang would regularly eat at this very same Popeye's during the making of The Chronic. Enough geeking out, enjoy the mix.
