302 Whatever Happened? - Karson
303 No One Can Do It Better - The D.O.C.

Dope ass lyrics by D.O.C, dope beats by Dre.

304 Trees and Truths - Mick Jenkins
305 In Gottes Namen - Alligatoah
306 Compton - Dr. Dre

A lot of Dre fans felt torn when this album came out. They don't approve of Compton because it's not like what Dre used to make. Let me get this out: I do not give a single damn how much Dre's music has changed. Compton is THE sickest album of 2015. This is coming from a fan of music, not a fan of Dre. We have legendary artists on board, all who took incredible advantage of their verses.

Kendrick Lamar just gave me chills every time he took the mic, and he's at his absolute greatest in Deep Water. Jon Connor undoubtedly tears the hell out of his verse in For the Love of Money. Ice Cube kill it in Issues. Eminem just lets everything out and destroys everything in Medicine Man. Then we got Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, The Game (who pretty much had his own song on the album but it bangs hard), Justus, BJ the Chicago Kid, Anderson.Paak, Candace Pillay, King Mez... man it's all-star cast on this SINGLE album!

What about Dre's music production? You can't deny it: the rhythms to this ...more - Mcgillacuddy

I don't know if it had the potential to be high up since it just came out, but come on when's the next time you're gonna have Dre, Em, Kendrick, Snoop, ice cube, the game and xzibit all on one album?.. Legendary.

The amount of great rappers on this album is incredible. Top to bottom one of the best albums in the last 10 years. Classic

I want to die

308 Return of the Boom Bap - KRS-One

311 Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space) - Digable Planets

It isn't western music, don't worry. More modern, leaning even to G-funk but still keeping Cube's aggressive style
