Today's Song - Let Me Ride - Dr. Dre

Comments - Great sample of Parliment.  This and a few other songs that had P-Funk samples really brought George Clinton back into the public eye and rightfully so because he made a lot of great music.  The Chronic album is one nof those that sort of defines an era.  I think that Snoop and 2Pac both later ended up outselling the record but The Chronic was the really the face of the genre since it was first (I know that there were NWA albums and some other "Gangsta Rap" things but none that were near as big as Dre).  It sort of did for rap what Nevermind did for Grunge.
