First off. Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic 2001” was released on November 19th, 1999 so it does not make the cut for the decade of the 2000’s. 50 Cent’s debut Album “Get Rich or Die Tryin” was voted hottest album of the decade by the members of hottestinthehood.com. Jay-Z’s original Blueprint came in second. Personally, that seems to be a pretty accurate vote. Others albums should have gotten more attention and some got more than deserved.
