    9 Classic Death Row Records Albums That Should Be in Your Collection

    Death Row Records is one of the most iconic records labels of all-time of any genre. The label had acts like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Dogg Pound, 2Pac and many others. Death Row Records have released some of the greatest hip hop albums ever. Death Row Records became a household name back in 1992 when Dr. Dre dropped the Chronic. The following year, Snoop Dogg released his classic debut, Doggystyle. In late-1995, 2Pac dropped his megahit, All Eyez on Me after getting out of prison. The record-breaking label hasn’t been highlighted many times over the years for the right and wrong reasons. In a span of five years, the company…

    Friday Soundtrack Released 25 Years Ago Today

    Today marks the 25th anniversary of the release of the Friday soundtrack. Friday is one of my all-time favorite movies. The movie is viewed by many as a classic and definite hood classic. With such an amazing movie, you know that the soundtrack had to be nice. With Ice Cube, one of the greatest rappers overseeing it you know it would be good. The Friday Soundtrack would debut as the top album and remained there for two weeks. Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Cypress Hill, Isley Brothers, Mack 10, Roger Troutman and many more appeared on the project. Ice Cube put out a video for the title track. The lone single…

    Dr. Dre Let Me Ride for Throwback Thursday

    Once again, we’ve arrived at Thursday which makes it closer to the weekend. My music selections for the week include a couple of personal compilations, Yukmouth and a Street Wars mixtape. Beanie Sigel’s The Truth were among the albums to go along with DJ 1Mic’s Death Row compilation. My featured Throwback Thursday joint is courtesy of Death Row Records. Death Row is by far my favorite rap label ever as they put out plenty of hits. Recently, Dr. Dre had the honor of having his Chronic album placed into the Library of Congress.  The honor is long deserved as it’s one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. When the…

The production on the album was top-notched and made Death Row Records. The album ushered in a great of young stars like Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound and many others. 7 years later, Dr. Dre released the follow-up, Chronic 2001 and through his label this time. Did Chronic 2001 eclipse the original Chronic album? In my opinion, it’ll be really hard to duplicate that album. The original Chronic is mentioned as the greatest rap album ever and on…
