Dr. Dre's seminal 1992 debut The Chronic is finally on streaming services. The album hit Tidal on Sunday and debuted on Apple Music and Spotify on Monday morning. Happy 4/20.
Last month, The Chronic was selected by the Library of Congress for inclusion in the National Recording Registry as a "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" work.
"Fans now have another reason to celebrate on what has become a national holiday, celebrating all things cannabis-related — where legally allowed and in moderation of course," Entertainment One Global President Chris Taylor said in a statement announcing the album's move to streaming last month. "Working with the Death Row catalogue is like working with the legendary recordings of Elvis, Chuck Berry and the Beatles. These historic artifacts should be heard by all music lovers and we are so happy Dr. Dre has opened this door so everyone can experience the brilliance of this seminal work.”
