vs.




A co-worker asked me this question and asked me to get y'all opinion. Which was bigger? As far as its effect on the mainstream, rap music, style or whatever.

I'm going with The Chronic also.

The Chronic set a tone in hip hop in motion. And it forever changed the status of the west coast and gangster rap. I do feel though that Doggystyle was waaay more anticipated and had more steam out the gate than Chronic. But thats only because The Chronic set it up for success.

The Chronic, it set the template and was the album that put the West on top of the hip-hop scene back in 1992. Doggystyle was huge as well, but the Chronic was the album that made Dr Dre AND Snoop Dogg household names.

Without The Chronic there is no Doggystyle.

So, yeah...

The Chronic has to win this. The Chronic IS the west coast. That being said, I wouldn't blame anyone for picking Doggystyle. Snoop's smooth flow over Dre's beats were an unbeatable combo on either album.

On a side note...I have both these albums ranked higher than 2001 but I spin and enjoy that one the most. Does anyone else feel that way?

Nope. But 2001 is a classic in it's own right also. Its up there with those two just like number 3 or something.

Yeah I agree. 2001 is classic and the production is just as good as the aforementioned albums, but Chronic and Doggystyle have more classic songs so for that reason I enjoy those two more.

I listen to Doggy more so Snoop.

However I see folks saying Chronic since it did introduce many to a slew of artists including Snoop.

Chronic said it and Doggystyle confirmed it.

No brainer. The Chronic had the biggest impact. But personally, I prefer Doggystyle but a fair margin.

Both of these albums are in my top 10, but I gotta go with The Chronic on this one as the bigger album and making more of an impact.
