How Dre Forgot About Dre: The Story of ‘2001’
By 1VIBE • Issue #16 • View online
If you ask any hip-hop fan (young or old) to name a few of their favorite classic albums, Dr. Dre’s 2001 will most likely make the list.

It’s fascinating to take a trip down memory lane and dive deep into the story of how an album that took 7 years to make would solidify Dr. Dre’s reputation as a hip-hop legend.
In other news, another hip-hop legend formerly known as Mos Def has returned with the launch of his new album, Negus. But this is no ordinary album release; it’s eight tracks are not available to buy, stream, or download.
