Guess what’s turning 20 in a few weeks, Dec. 15th to be exact? With its stylish, sonically detailed production, Dr. Dre’s 1992 solo debut, The Chronic, transformed the entire sound of West Coast rap. Dre established his patented G-funk sound: fat, blunted Parliament-Funkadelic beats, soulful backing vocals, and live instruments in the rolling basslines and whiny synths. Dre crafted his sounds better than his inspiration, P-Funk allstar George Clinton. Ben Westoff of LA Weekly does an excellent piece on it with all the original players, find it here.  How are you going to celebrate?!
