I think tha Thizz Dre was way more lyrical than tha old Dre. Poppin them pills kinda opens up your mind, from a lyrical standpoint. But fuck all that though, I bump alla Dre's shit. And He was in 2 different eras, tha gangsta rap era, and tha millenium era, which is pretty much all about partying and makin money. so he just evolved with tha times, yadida?
