We gave it an A+

More than a collection of destined-to-be-hit singles, this soundtrack is a musical event: the coming of the G-Funk era. In the course of 20 tracks, Dr. Dre unites the hottest acts in black music, including SWV, 2Pac, and H-Town. With its celebrations of street life and bouncy, lush charm, Above the Rim proves that Dre’s artistic vision is even broader than his groundbreaking work with N.W.A and Snoop Doggy Dogg or his own solo efforts have suggested.
