Best Dr. Dre Songs


The Top Ten

1 Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang

I need a doctor isn't even rap its pop definitely not his best

this song is so cool. it makes me nod my head always. and it is in gtasa soundtrack! dr dre is really cool.

You know enano!

2 Still D.R.E.

All time great... The instrumental is great, the lyrics go with the beat.

Should be number one. I think if people listened to this instead of what the number one is they would see that this song should be number one instead

when it first dropped it became an instant classic

West coast vibes

3 Forgot About Dre

How the hell is I Need a Doctor on top? The beats are nothing compared to this song and the songs his album "2001" were what made him well known beside "The Chronic. "

Dr. Dre and Emin3m together are unbeatable I thinck this song should be #1

The lyricism of this song, is great, original storyline of the rap, love it. - roblist

I Loved it both Em and Dre are great

4 The Next Episode

this song is the best song of 2001 and 2002 should be no. 1 by far

2001 came out in 1999 not 2001 or 2002. And the best song on it is forgot about dre and what's the difference - Thicc_Neeson

Its just too good to be 5th, each verse got an awesome introduction with is of course followed by classic rap at its best. Dre hands down shines here.

This is #1 no two ways about it... the sample he took is on point, nate dogg kills it and the whole thing just works, this is the best song dr dre has ever produced, not by a mile, but its still at the top...

Look guys, I get this an mlg song, but this honestly isn't as good as the og nuthin but a g thang. People who say snoop murdered this can search deep cover by dr dre and listen to snoops part then say what they think. But honestly, I don't get how people think this is as good as still dre or forgot about dre. Best song of 2001 and 2002 bud? You realize this song was released in 1999 right? It wouldn't be the number one song of 2002. Some kid thought this album was released in 2001. Lmao

5 California Love

Dre and Tupac, awesome song, I'm shocked that its not in the top ten. I mean, when the best producer and the best rapper make a song, its got to be awesome... This song is also considered one of Tupac's best songs, listen to this song and you'll love it

This song is one of the best songs by 2PAc. Not to mention Dre doing his thing. Both 2pac and Dre did their part better than most people could, both in his day, and in our day

Tupac and dre the world's best rappers, west coast forever, eazy e, snoop, ice cube are west coast nigaz

The best! The bass in this song shows the reason there is Beats by Dre!

6 F*** Wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin')

Dr. Dre even took on eazy e in his day, truly a living LEGEND

This is Dre's best song. Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are truly a lethal combo together!

I can't describe what this song makes me feel every single time I listen to. Incredible!

Put dre on the suburban map

8 What's the Difference

This is an amazing song. It should be number 2 behind still dre. What's with I need a doctor? That song is probably dre's worst song.

This song has such a sick beat its ridiculous. It also has so many legendary rappers in it. This should be at least top 5

A touching intro with Dre paying tribute to the D.O. C and eazy-e and then Xzibit rips up the track with his straight up west coast verse, and then Eminem comes in and blows up the song with funny and perfect flowing rhymes.

9 Let Me Ride

This is totally underrated. Should be at least in the top 5 tracks

Easily a top 5 Dre song to listen to in your car. The smooth bass guitar line combined with a steady drum beat and heavy synthesizer for the chorus alone make it an instant classic.

Definitely one of his most underrated after Lil Ghetto Boy.

Annoyed that only three songs from the chronic are in the top 10. If I could I would remove I need a doctor and replace it with lyrical gangbang. There are a lot of great songs on the chronic, but then again all his albums are good.

10 Deep Cover

The Contenders

11 Keep Their Heads Ringing

I think that it should've been in the top 10

I think this should've been 1st

Best dre tune by a mile

The pure definition of gangsta rap, there has never been a beat nor a flow as smooth as it is on this joint, 20 years later, it still sounds as good as the first time I heard it, Dre at his finest, a close second to "nothing but a G thang"

Such a good, chill, almost psychedelic track. - MaxAttack333

13 The Watcher

Sick beat, spot on lyrics. Fresh songs from the 2001 album that prolonged the gangsta rap scene which almost died with the deaths of Tupac and Biggie.

Best dre song, definitely should be higher on the list

The lyrics are simply great and the rhymes are flowing with the beat.

Great lyricism.

14 Guilty Conscience

I agree with most of the top 10, but this song has to be up there too. Eminem and Dre are both great and it's just a great song overall.

One of Dre's best songs. Tells an interesting story.

Eminem's funniest song

15 Lil' Ghetto Boy

You know dr. Dre is a good producer and such a good rapper with good connection when he can use a sample of donny haddaway in a song and make it so master!

It's his most meaningful song and the flute sample is amazing!

This song hit the nail on the head

Eminems song = His album...

17 F*** the Police

Original song that's lit

Is it a pretty popo

The greatest n.w.a song easily.

18 Bitch Please II

Not just best by dre but with Eminem nate dogg 50 and xzibit its just kick ass

Beats so dope, and em's verse paying homage to snooop from the original is hilarious.

19 Natural Born Killaz

Ice Cube + Dr Dre for the first time since NWA disbanded= A GOOD IF NOT GREAT SONG

A very intense, scary song. Not for the faint of heart, but brilliant through shock.

20 Express Yourself

Awesome song with a beat sampled from charles wright who originally wrote this dope beat. This song has a funky free flowing beat that I can't get enough of. Should be higher on the list.

"This one should at least be in the top 10. It was the song that put Dre on the map"

Best NWA song for dre!

Love the rawness of his voice! instant classic! should be higher on the list

21 Kush

Love the beat, amazing song, just like Dr. Dre! You can't find any better of a songs it is just so great it's insane!

Great Beats. Akon and Snoop Dogg did great along with the best of the rappers: Dr. Dre.

I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E. beat I love this song so much. "I Need a Doctor" sucks. Dre rules!

Should be in top ten, so catchy
