Ep 13 - Dr. Dre - The Chronic (30 Year Anniversary)

Season 2  /  Episode 13  /  12.13.2022  /  59 min

Episode Details

Torae & Bonsu are closing out the year strong, much like Dre & Snoop did in '92 with The Chronic. After NWA disbanded many were left wondering what would come next. Ice Cube was enjoying a successful solo career and the tension between Eazy-E and Dre was pretty high. On the Deep Cover soundtrack we got a glimpse of what was to come when a tall slim rapper from Long Beach stepped on the scene. Dre & Snoop (along with the rest of the Death Row family) created an album that would forever change hip-hop and at the same time set the launching pad for one of the most iconic careers in music history. Tap in to our last episode of 2022 as the guys hit The Chronic and once again prove Hard2Earn ain't Nuthin' But a G Thang.
