(1996)

The Chronic is the debut solo album from American gangsta rapper Dr. Dre. Having split from Ice Cube and Eazy-E, Dre's first solo album established him as the biggest hip hop artist in the US, and one of the biggest stars of his era. The Chronic established a sound known as G-funk, slow George Clinton-influenced bass beats, that quickly moved into the mainstream. This album also jumpstarted the career of Snoop Doggy Dogg, who appears on several tracks.

On the Billboard Music Charts (North America) album lists, The Chronic hit #1 R&B/Hip hop and #3 Pop.
