Although Dr. Dre had already helped put L.A. gangsta rap on the map as a member of N.W.A, it was his solo debut, released in December 1992, that made the good doctor a household name and turned Death Row Records into a hit factory. The Chronic introduced the world to stars like Snoop Doggy Dogg, Nate Dogg and Lady of Rage, sold millions, and settled scores with foes like Eazy-E and Luther Campbell. But it was Dre's groundbreaking production and string of hit singles that made The Chronic one of rap's most revered LPs, ranking at number 138 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
