Dr. Dre will reissue his debut studio album ‘The Chronic’ to commemorate his 30th birthday.

Dr. Dre will re-release his critically acclaimed debut studio album “The Chronic” to commemorate its 30th anniversary.

On Wednesday, the multi-Grammy winner’s iconic first solo album will be re-released on streaming services. His 1992 debut album became a classic, spawning several hits such as “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” and “Let Me Ride.” The latter song, which featured rapper Snoop Dogg as well as Ruben and Jewell on vocals, earned Dr. Dre his first Grammy in 1994.

After Snoop Dogg purchased the Death Row Records brand and removed the label’s music from those platforms last year, “The Chronic” was removed from all major streaming services. During a podcast, Dogg stated that the music would “live in the metaverse.”

Dre’s debut album will now be reissued by its original distributor, Interscope Records. The rapper-producer called working with Interscope and having his album available to fans all over the world a “full circle moment for me.” On December 15, 1992, the album was released.

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

Interscope Geffen A&M chairman John Janick said he’s honoured to work with Dre on the re-release.

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

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