The Chronic Vs. Enter The 36 Chambers


Both landmark albums of the second golden era completely different in sound. Game changers, true classics that you can hear the influence on numerous albums for years to come. Lyrics, style, production, album format, topics had to compete with the standards set by these two records and I think they contributed to the large amount of dope material released in that era.

West coast dominance.......Death Row.....the slick G Funk of The Chronic......the anticipation of a Snoop doggy dogg solo.....the diss records.......Nuthin but a G Thang & Fuck Wit Dre Day.....you had to smoke weed....gangsta rap was the mainstream

Vs.

Popularity swinging back to the east.....the raw basement sound of 36 chambers.....every group with more than a few members still gets compared to.....Ol' dirty bastard and M-E-T-H-O-D Maaan........Protect Ya Neck and C.R.E.A.M.......the classic RZA produced solo records that followed......wu-wear....grimey was the mainstream....bring the muthafuckin ruckus!


Which in your opinion had the bigger impact on the hip hop nation?

The Chronic had the bigger impact but its very debatable by how much. After The Chronic dropped every region period seemed to try their hand at the g-funk /slow bass sound or make their music more hardcore.

I didn't see Wu Tang have that impact on all regions as far as rappers changing their styles to a Wu sound. Wu influence on the underground sound is big and it did help give the east coast its identity back.

Alot of people copied The Chronic's style. From Dre's production to having a load of cameos on your shit. To not just introducing a rapper on one song, but a couple of songs, having said rapper on a majority of songs. This creates a great buzz for that rapper. If Snoop was just on 1 song his buzz wouldn't as strong. Later we seen E.Sermon use this exact technique on his No Pressure album. Id say Chronic by a hair.

Yeah so much stuff in the following years you can tell they had been listening to The Chronic when they made there shit. Not just on the west but the south and Midwest. Even the east you can hear the influence on Def Squad production '93 - '94 and if you listen to Buckshot on Enta Da Stage then listen to his flow on I Got Cha Opin (Remix) and Buck Em Down (remix) you can tell he was influenced by Snoop.

I don't think 36 Chambers had the same reach but it's a slow burner. I think you can still hear the Wu influence in underground hip hop. I don't hear much shit trying to sound like The Chronic now. Not even Dre & Snoop. Sercond string wu-tang is still trying to create that 36 chambers sound

Also the Chronic made gangstar rap mainstream. Before G-rap was underground, not underground by today's standard, but it didn't get much radio play. Rapper's like Heavy D, Kid N Play, Will Smith and other squeaky clean rappers were at the forefront of rap pop- culture . When Dre dropped G-Thang, the pop-radio culture couldn't ignore it. Also notice how many rappers shit had the PA sticker on it after the Chronic. Das Efx first album had no cuss words, the second album did.

The Chronic changed almost everything. 36 Chambers had a profound effect on the East Coast that resulted in more albums i enjoy listening to, but i truly believe that The Chronic changed the entire industry. It was an influence on other mc's and producers, but it changed the way music executives looked at hip hop. It changed radio too because this was not only gangsta rap, but it was also commercially viable. There is a clear difference in top 40 stations pre-Chronic and post-Chronic.

Gotta go with The Chronic here.....it changed everything when it dropped....it's influence was felt heavily on these 3 standout albums that followed, as well as a bunch of others (these were the first 3 that came to mind for me though)..

1.Snoop Dogg-Doggystyle
2.Da Brat-Funkdafied
3.Biggie Smalls-Ready To Die

even the skits on The Chronic were influential......that was Dr.Dre in his prime man!

I think 36 Chamber takes it for longevity purposes. People are still influenced by the WU, especially business structure wise and beats. Dre seems to be mostly known for his headphones, and not producing Detox. I've noticed that Hip hop in general doesn't have distinctive sounds for that region anymore. It's hard to accurately tell if somebody is from the East, West, South, or in between.
