Various ‎– Suge Knight Represents: Chronic 2000 (2001) (2CD) (FLAC + 320 kbps)

The marketing event of the millennium (according to jail-bound executive producer Suge Knight), Chronic 2000: Still Smokin’ is as much an album of its time as the original, Dr. Dre’s 1993 masterpiece The Chronic. While the original introduced a new era of commercial gangsta crossover hip-hop, the follow-up signals everything that’s wrong with the state of hip-hop circa the end of the millennium. It’s not that the production is sub-standard; tracks like “Top Dogg Cindafella” (by Top Dogg) and the title track (by VK Featuring Treach) are solid productions that hold their own with many of their contemporaries in the world of chartbound hip-hop. The problem is, this is the same type of music that even Dr. Dre moved past several years ago, and the range of participants is an amalgam of post-gangsta crossover, veteran (Kurupt, Treach, DJ Quik, Daz Dillinger, even the long-gone 2 P a c) and rookie (Top Dogg, Doobie, Capricorne, Mac-Shawn). It doesn’t just smack of a marketing scam — it’s bad music-making and should be avoided at any cost.
