Dr. Dre, Dr. Dre 2001 (1999)

Seven years before releasing this disc, Dre changed the face and sound of hip hop music (and Black urban culture) with 1992's triple platinum The Chronic. While the music on Dr. Dre 2001 wasn't as earth shattering, anticipation for the album helped push sales toward 6 million, showing, for Dre, it was still a G thang.
