    Yesterday morning I heard this classical rap album using Apple Music download on my iPod touch.



    I really appreciate the legacy of N.W.A. but Dr. Dre's first solo outing was ruined by poor guest appearances and somewhat inconsistent production values. Hearing this again, this album sounds rather dated now. On the other hand, the standout track is Lil Ghetto Boy which is very profound. That track is one of the best songs about experiencing the jail life as a gangster.



    Too bad the album is marred by too many blunt references, sexist jokes, and tiresome phallic references. Honestly, Dr. Dre had a chance to revive his N.W.A. mantra but missed it. His next album would be exceptionally better.
