Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ Returns To Streaming In Honor Of 30th Anniversary

The classic album will be re-released through Interscope Records, its original distributor.

Dr. Dre is continuing to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his solo debut album The Chronic with a re-release of the work.

On Wednesday (February 1), the classic LP hit streaming services after it was removed from all major platforms following Snoop Dogg’s purchase of the Death Row Records brand and subsequent pulling of the label’s music from all others.

Now, Dre’s debut LP will be re-released through its original distributor, Interscope Records. The hip-hop legend said he’s excited to work with the label and that his album is available for fans world wide.

John Janick, a chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M, noted he’s honored to work with Dr. Dre on the re-release.

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