    It introduced g-funk and opened the doors for a lot of L.A. rappers. The industry was checking heavy for the westcoast trying to find another snoop and dre.

    Go to YouTube and you can find hours worth of videos of unknown rappers that didn't make it from 92-96 that sound like snoop and dre

    - It was the launch of snoop and his signature sound
    - Introduced melody in hip hop on a wide scale
    - Showed an alternate look at black culture in Cal
    - Elevated disses
    - Spawned Death Row Era
    - It was the best selling album at that point
    - G Funk sound was all over the culture
    - Took Hip Hop to suburban radio
    - Elevated skits
    - Began the west coat rapper takeover

    Just to name a few

    I'll agree to some of the points you made, but Niggaz4life was released about 18 months earlier and had the same sound. The main difference is he replaced Ren with Snoop. Also, from what I've deduced, white people claim The Chronic because they don't feel comfortable saying "Niggaz4life".



    In fact, every point you made could be applied to No One Can Do It Better and Niggaz4life.



    On a side note, I remember that era clearly. I agree that Dre had a different sound from what was going on in the East but they weren't the first rap group to usher in a new sound.

    Run DMC had a new sound on their first album
    Whodini had a new sound on their first album
    Boogie Down Productions had a new sound on their first album
    Public Enemy had a new sound on their first and especially their second album
    De La Soul had a new sound on their first album
    Beastie Boys Paul Boutique had a new sound
    A Tribe Called Quest ushered in a new sound with Low End Theory


    So saying that Dre had a new sound (Nuthin But A G Thing and Let Me Ride) is true, but that's not the first time somebody came from a different angle.

    Lastly, The Chronic wasn't the first posse album. Marley Marl released In Control Volume 1 in the summer of 1988.

    I'm not saying that I didn't like it, but people are acting like The Chronic was the second coming of Jesus. I'm saying I remember when it came out and it was hyped up but really besides Nuthin But A G Thing and Let Me Ride, it was just another album.

    A Tribe Called Quest's Low End Theory came out about a year before The Chronic and I always thought Tribe's album was far superior, lyrically and production.

    If you cannot tell the vibe difference between the Chronic and those albums than I am not sure what to say as you can not train an ear with written words and yours has no obvious ability to palette the flavor distinctions in the music...
