Dr. Dre‘s debut studio album, The Chronic, is finally heading to all streaming services. The legendary album will fittingly make its digital debut on April 20 – or the unofficial marijuana holiday 4/20.
Until now the rapper/producer’s 1992 landmark G-funk LP had only been available on Apple Music. Otherwise The Chronic has been famously unavailable digitally. However, Entertainment One (eOne), which now holds the Death Row Records catalog, announced Thursday that streaming services like Spotify and Tidal will now share The Chronic beginning April 20.
“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,” eOne’s Global President Chris Taylor said in a statement. “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.”
The Chronic was recently archived in the Library of Congress to honor its cultural importance. Come back here on 4/20 to finally stream the historical album.
