i was never a fan of gangster rap. it destroyed the golden era of hiphop. i pretty much gave up on hiphop when all that shit got big. so i never really listened to the chronic till recently. almost everyone says its a classic.
i am not one of these people. the lyrics dont speak to me. i always found the gangster shit pretty lame. the beats are too squeeky clean. the high pitch melodies, which are dre's trademark, drive me nuts. they make my ears bleed. there are too many skits.
dont get me wrong, there are some good singles on there and dre is an amazing producer, but its just not my flavor of hiphop.
