Wow. It's been a while since I actually listened to this. I'm glad I did, I forgot how awesome this was. Dr. Dre really struck gold with the production. The Chronic was a certified car banger, and 2001 is no different. What's even more impressive is his movement away from G-Funk with no problems at all. This seriously hits so hard. So hard... Lyrically, what do you expect? The lyrics fit perfectly, and the features for the most part are awesome. Listening to Eminem in his features compared to the legendary Recovery (sarcasm) released yesterday really annoys me. I know the Stans are drooling all over the new release, but his 2001 features blow any of Recovery out of the water. Enough of my mini rant, I forgot to mention how amazing a few of the hooks are. Devin the Dude and Nate Dogg are seriously two of the best at it. This is definitely a banger; I'm actually glad I hadn't listened to this in a few years. Back around 2000, this was in everybody's heavy rotation, and it needed the break. It made it that much more of a better experience listening again.
