Diggin’ in the Crates: A Dr. Dre Production

I’ve been sitting on this radio.blog for a while now because I’ve had radio.blogger’s block. It’s not that I couldn’t think of anything to post, it’s that I had too many ideas floating around in my head. At least now I have some good ideas for next year.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite Dr. Dre produced tracks. This was very difficult for me to pare down from the initial 35 tracks I ripped. But I think it’s a good representation of the man’s skills. It’s got everything from a track from his “lipstick & lace” days to some D.O.C. (damn he was nice) to NWA, Snoop and of course tracks from the Chronic. That ‘album’ is my all-time favorite hip-hop album. It stayed in my car’s CD player for over a year straight. It happened to come out right around the time when I moved from Los Angeles to Atlanta. I used to play it to remind me of home. I especially loved the tracks that talked about the L.A. uprising. Ahhh. L.A…

BTW, I came across this list of the top hip-hop producers/M.C.s the other day. Dre comes in at a respectable #6, which isn’t bad considering all the hating that goes on about his rapping skills.

Honey’s doing her thing again. This time with her Top 25 Songs of 2004 Radio.Blog. The woman’s got great taste in music.


  1. Wow, this took me back to the days of L.A. and Oakland.

    Some of my favories: Phone Tap (Nas & AZ.. what can I say) The Formula the DOC – CLASSIC, and It Ain’t no fun

    Nice return of the radio.blog

    Happy New Year!!

  2. Ohhhhhhh nicccccce. You doing your thing as usual on this one. I’d forgot how much Dre had his hand in things on the left coast in the early days. The Nwa, DOC, The Firm, and my homeboy Devin are my favs so far. And what ya mean “The Chronic” used to stay in your car…I’m still bumpin it, LOL. Thanks for the compliment and have a Happy New Year 🙂

  3. I’m just trying to hang with you Honey. After doing this radio blog I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to burn a few Dre collection CDs. Yeah, no MP3 players & playlists for me, I’m keeping it gangsta! 😉
