Dr Dre The Chronic G-funk rap legend & and one of the most respected hip hop producers off all time, Dr Dre, re-releases his solo debut album 'The Chronic' on wax. This has to be one of the most classic hip hop records of all time! Death Row LP
Dr Dre / The Lady Of Rage Nuthin' But A G Thing For those whose Californian hip-hop collection is missing a few gems, the West Coast Classics series should be a must-check. The latest edition in the series of the light-touch "45 Edits" by Ronnie Frazzle serves up two more essential cuts from the peerless Dr Dre and lesser-celebrated Death Row Records signee The Lady of Rage. Side A boasts the superb "Nuthin' But A G Thing" from Dre's iconic 1992 album "The Chronic", in which the main man and Snoop Dogg trade verses over a typically on-point G-funk style beat. The Lady of Rage's 1994 jam "Afro Puffs" is a darker, sleazier and tougher affair, with the Virginia-raised rapper's distinctive flow rising above punchy beats, creepy chords and a filthy analogue bassline.

Dr Dre In Effect A deluxe vinyl edition of this super early rap mix that goes as far back as 1985 from the legendary Dr Dre. Layers upon layers of tracks that at the time was technically advanced and the passion he put into them is what made them classic. The Dr. Dre mixtapes were ostensibly 4-track ‘mash-ups’ of all the newest and dopest records of the time. They had simple photocopied covers but they were raw... and they were incredible. Dre’s tapes were sold at swap meets, which were just organized yard sales held in giant parking lots, like The Roadium. However, it was at these swap meets that Dr. Dre first made a name for himself by simply adding another dimension to the new west coast style of hip hop. Parachute LP
Dr Dre / Too Short Deep Cover The "West Coast Classics" series has a simple premise. It offers up light-touch re-edits of essential West Coast hip-hop hits from the style's glory years in the 1990s. The latest salvo boasts two must-have cuts. On the A-side you'll find Dr Dre's "Deep Cover", the cut that introduced the world to future star (and now iconic artist) Snoop Dogg. His flows work perfectly over Dre's low-slung beat, which makes great use of smoky instrumental samples from what sounds like the soundtrack of a 1970s spy thriller. Over on the flip you'll find Too Short's lesser-celebrated "Bad Ways", which first surfaced on the long-serving Los Angeles mic man's 1996 album "Gettin' It (Album Number Ten)" and makes use of elements from Parliament/Funkadelic classic "Flashlight".

Dr Dre 2001 (Explicit) The explicit and instrumental versions of the second full length album from the hip-hop legend Dr Dre. Originally released in 1999.

The album debuted at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling 550,000 copies in its first week. It produced 3 singles that attained chart success and has been certified 6× Platinum by the RIAA; as of August 2015 the album has sold 7,800,000 copies in the United States. Urban Legends/UMe will release the vinyl of 2001 in 2LP 180 gram black vinyl for both the Explicit and Instrumental versions. UMC / Polydor LP
Dr Dre 2001 (Censored Version) Remastered double LP of Dr Dre's iconic 2001, but this version doesn't have the swears! LP
Dr Dre Compton First Dr Dre album in 16 years and features guest spots from Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Xzibit and more! Musically, the album is a reminder that Dre's palette and appetite for sound has always been eclectic, and rather than retread, we hear him pushing into new territory. At one moment, he's sampling an obscure modern funk band from Italy (for "One Shot One Kill") and the next, lifting a guitar riff from a random Turkish psychedelic burner. Throughout, session musicians polish out the edges, and Dre continues to lean on live keys and bass to fill out chunky bottom ends Interscope CD | LP
