Dr. Dre is a multi-talented rapper, record producer, and an incredible entrepreneur. However, fans will have another chance to witness Dr. Dre with another smash hit. Now, Dr. Dre’s The Chronic album is back to a streaming service.
The Chronic, Dr. Dre’s debut album, is now available again on streaming sites. Interscope Records has re-released the legendary album on DSPs to mark the 30th anniversary of its release on December 15, 1992. Even, the Chronic reached its highest point on the Billboard 200 chart at No. 3.
“I am thrilled to bring The Chronic home to its original distribution partner, Interscope Records. Working alongside my longtime colleagues, Steve Berman and John Janick, to re-release the album and make it available to fans all over the world is a full circle moment for me.”
Since then, the first LP has spent 97 weeks on the list and produced two top ten singles on the Billboard Hot 100, ‘Nuthin But a ‘G’ Thang’ (No. 2) featuring Snoop Dogg and ‘F*ck Wit Dre Day’ (No. 8), catapulting the famous producer to the heights of rap success.
“Dr. Dre is without a doubt one of the most iconic and groundbreaking artists in the modern era. He has also used his platform to fuel some very impactful philanthropic efforts that will ensure his legacy is felt for generations to come. Dre’s solo career all started with the The Chronic, one of the most celebrated recordings of all time. To have this album at Interscope once again where we work with Dre and his amazing team at Aftermath day in and day out is incredibly gratifying for me personally and all of us at Interscope.”
Dr. Dre and the album were even complimented by Steve Berman, vice chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M. However, what are your thoughts on the album? Let us know in the comments. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
