NYMag.com put together a compelling story about the former Bad Boy artist G. Dep, who turned himself in in 2010 and confessed to a murder he committed in 1993.

We start in 2002 at El-P’s apartment where he proceeds to warn us that WW3 is here, and we’re all “going to die!” DJ Abilities makes a brief cameo (playing video games). Vast Aire explains the relativity of time through the eyes of poor folk (“The day is long when you’re poor. When you’re a poor person 24 hours is like 10 years.”), speaking with more flow than some rappers have in their veins.
MTV gets bashed by Vast Aire and Jestone Art. On the topic of science fiction, El-P drops some mad knowledge on the state of the U.S. post-9/11. Mr. Lif and El-P interrupt Aesop Rock as he pours out his heart.
Vast Aire professes his love for poetry, opens up his notebook for a brief recitation. Fittingly, El-P calls rappers “the writers of our generation… these are the new authors.” The doc ends as it began: with an apartment full of genre-disruptors kickin’ it in the midst of their own genius.

Dr. Dre’s seminal 1992 album, The Chronic, turns 20 next month. Though a sensation upon its release, the raw-but-melodic work’s legend has only grown in the ensuing decades, and today seemingly every MC-producer duo fancies itself the next Dre and Snoop Dogg. It has become the most influential rap work ever made, and perhaps even the greatest.
But it almost never happened. Despite the success Dre had experienced with N.W.A, he was entangled in contractual problems with his former crewmate Eazy-E’s label. For that reason, as well as Death Row’s dodgy reputation, The Chronic had a hard time finding release. It took the shepherding of renegade upstart Interscope Records, the financing of convicted drug kingpin Michael Harris and the steady hand of Suge Knight, an intimidating former defensive end, to give it life.
Our story begins with the 1991 inception of Death Row Records. Dre was then working closely with veteran record producer Dick Griffey, the founder of Solar Records, a successful R&B and soul imprint. (Griffey died in 2010.) Alonzo Williams, who kicks things off below, helmed electro-rap group World Class Wreckin’ Cru, which gave Dr. Dre his start.
