This past weekend, one of the most iconic and classic albums in Hip-Hop history, Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, turned 20 years old. The album can still be heard blaring through speakers across the West Coast as it still makes an impact today, influencing plenty of young up and comers in music. It’s truly one album that never gets old.
“Dre Day” was a single from the album that was a verbal assault on Eazy-E, Tim Dog and Luke Campbell. The video sees “Sleazy-E” acting a fool throughout (in various situations), as Dre and Snoop hold it down for L.A. and gain a huge following. It spawned the classic response from Eazy on “Real MuthaPhuckkin G’s” as one of Hip-Hop’s most notable beefs, and it continued up until shortly before Eazy died in March of 1995.
If you get a chance to ride out to some gangsta shit this week, pay homage and blast that classic West Coast funk. At least until DETOX drops (if ever).
