Game Remembers Dr. Dre’s “2001”

dre_game_575

Today marks 10 years since Dr. Dre released his last album, 2001. To commemorate the date, XXL spoke to Game on Dre’s classic disc. Wait, wasn’t Jayceon in a coma?

When Dre put out 2001, man, every single car that drove past the hood was bumpin’ that album and different tracks. Everybody always had they favorite and wanted to argue over what was better or who rocked better but that combination of Mel Man, Dre and Hittman was crazy, man… I ain’t got no favorite [song] but if you wanna know who killed it, Eminem killed it [on “What’s the Difference” and] Devin the Dude killed it [on “Fuck You,”]. Those was like monumental features. Eminem and Devin was crazy.

    Damn, its been 10 years already. I was just listening to it last week. Album was tough.
    Em’s verse on “What’s the Difference” was crazy, BUT Xzibit might have had the best verse on that track. I know yall gonna laugh, but listen to it again.

    I realized a while back that on Game’s song “Dreams” he says “I woke up from that coma 2001/round the same time Dre dropped 2001.”

    Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but you did just post that Dr. Dre’s Chronic 2001 is 10 years old. That would mark it’s release in 1999 correct?

    Rap liars. Get em’ everytime.
