Dr. Dre – The Chronic

#Flashback Officially now a classic as it’s 25 years old

Why this album dropped in the midst of winter is a bit baffling, it’s pure summer time vibes. The sound and voice of the US west coast 25 years ago, Dr. Dre’s debut solo album ‘The Chronic’ also introduced us to the laid back lilt of Snoop Dogg.

We’d have to wait another seven years before he surfaced again with more solo work, but this was enough to be going with for sure.

Kendrick Lamar – Swimming Pools (Drank)

#Flashback Five years have passed and the slow rumble that kicks it off still gets us every time

The second single to drop from Kendrick Lamar’s second studio album; ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City’ and it was a belter.

Five years have passed since ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’ dropped and the slow rumble that kicks it off still gets us every time.
