Sleazy eroticism includes oral sex, lesbianism, masturbation and friends taking turns with a willing female. The f-word shows up throughout this disc, even in the title of a cut about the rapper propositioning a married woman. Women are called "b--ches" and "hos." Dre glamorizes drugs and alcohol in the form of Hennessy, leaves, Cali weed, hash, cognac, chronic, blunts, hydro and Ecstasy. On "What's the Difference," vile rapper Eminem boasts to Dre and fellow guest artist Snoop Dogg about his desire to kill a former girlfriend. Elsewhere, the disc glamorizes homicidal gunplay ("B--ch A-- N-ggas," "Light Speed," "Murder Ink," "Big Egos"), arson ("Forgot About Dre") and "stranglin' hos" ("Light Speed"). Hateful, hedonistic stuff.

Summary Advisory

Born Andre Young, this gangsta pioneer first hit the charts as part of N.W.A. in 1988. Since going solo in '93, he has racked up a number of hits; he hit a police officer, a record producer and a woman in a nightclub. Then he violated probation by driving 90 m.p.h. while intoxicated. Such behavior gives Dre credibility within a twisted subculture that enjoys CDs like 2001--a celebration of illicit sex, brutal violence, drugs and misogyny. The doctor is out.
