The solo debut album from legendary producer Dr. Dre, The Chronic returns to every streaming services after nearly a year away from its original distributor Interscope Records.
“I am thrilled to bring The Chronic home to its original distribution partner, Interscope Records,” Dr. Dre noted in a press release.
“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.” – said Steve Berman, vice chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M.
The Chronic was released back in December 15, 1992, under Death Row Records/Interscope and it peaked at No. 3 on The US Billboard 200 and has spent 97 weeks on the chart since its release. The album also spawned three top 40 hits on the Hot 100, including top 10 records with “Nuthin’ But a “G” Thang” (No. 2) featuring Snoop Dogg. Rolling Stone placed The Chronic on its 500 Greatest Albums of All-Time List, noting the album “redefined the West Coast Hip Hop sound.”
