Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic” cassette reissue coming for Death Row Records 30th anniversary

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.
