2001 is the second studio album by  Dr. Dre. It was released on November 16, 1999, by Interscope Records as the follow-up to his 1992 debut album The Chronic. This is an instrumental version of that album

Dr. Dre has never been a great rapper. I don't care for his voice and his lines were/are ghost written by someone else anyway. That said, he has always been a standout producer and beatmaker, even going back to albums like No One Can Do It Better.

Without the vocals, which are really just a distraction at best anyway, you can hear how well produced this album actually was. The beats are very carefully crafted, with little slivers of melody here and there. They are almost minimalistic in approach, but I don't get bored listening to them. This album, in its instrumental form, manages to be very engaging yet relaxing at the same time. I like the fact that these are true instrumentals - they didn't leave the hook/chorus parts in at all.

My copy is on vinyl and comes with no info beyond what's on the record labels. The jacket is just a plain black DJ sleeve with a sticker on it. The pressing quality is pretty good, not the best I've ever seen but nowhere near the worst - probably about average for a contemporary vinyl release.
