Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic,” Snoop Doggy Dogg’s “Doggystyle,” Tupac’s “All Eyez On Me” (2x tape set) and “The Don Killuminati (7 Day Theory)” – all those 4 classic hip-hop albums will be reissued on cassette on April 20 to celebrate Death Row Record’s 30th year anniversary.
“Death Row Records beams in hip-hop history as much more than music label. Death Row was a movement, hip-hop revolution, factory for greatness, and one of the first exemplifications of black power within the business of rap.”
“During a time when hip-hop’s market share of multi-platinum plaques was a small minority, Death Row liberated and empowered some of our greatest creatives, leveling another lopsided American playing field. Without Death Row, we would never hear the aqua-flow of Snoop Dogg or the genius of Eminem. We would be deprived of Cali’s finest production – from Dr. Dre to DJ Pooh – and our music palettes would be lesser for having never heard The Don Killuminati: 7 Day Theory or either of the Chronic albums.”
“If Death Row had never been, hip-hop would have never experienced the unforgettable era of West Coast dominance.” – reads the statement issued by the record label.
