Streaming HUBFebruary 1, 2023

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Dr. Dre will celebrate the 30th anniversary of “The Chronic” with a re-release of his acclaimed debut studio album.

The multi-Grammy winner’s iconic debut solo album will return to streaming services on Wednesday. Their 1992 release became a classic with hits including “Nothin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” and “Let Me Ride”. The latter track – with rappers Snoop Dogg featuring Reuben and Jewel on vocals – won Dr. Dre his first Grammy in 1994.

Last year, “The Chronic” was removed from all major streaming services after Snoop Dogg bought the Death Row Records brand and pulled the label’s music from those platforms. Doug stated during a podcast that the music would be “live in the metaverse.”

Now, Dre’s debut album will be re-released through its original distributor, Interscope Records. The rapper-producer said he is thrilled to be working with Interscope and have his album available to fans around the world which is “a full circle moment for me”. The album was released on December 15, 1992.

“Dre’s solo career began with ‘The Chronic,’ one of the most celebrated recordings of all time,” said Steve Berman, vice chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M. He described Dre as one of the most powerful artists of the modern era.

John Janick, a president of Interscope Geffen A&M, said he was honored to work with Dre on the re-release.

Janick said, “The importance of Dr. Dre as a founding artist on the label was incredibly important to me from my first day at Interscope.” “We take our responsibility to Dre and his amazing body of work very seriously and we are honored to collaborate with him on this re-release of one of the most important albums of all time.”

Seven-time Grammy winner Dre has penned major hits for Jay-Z, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Kendrick Lamar, Nas and 50 Cent. He has worked with Eminem, Mary J. Blige, along with Snoop Dogg, Lamar and 50 Cent, won her first Emmy for last year’s Super Bowl halftime performance.
