Just a few short days ago it was announced that Dr. Dre‘s debut solo album, The Chronic, will be added to and archived in the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry. Now, eOne (or, Hasbro, as they purchased eOne in August 2019) announced that the album will finally make its way to all digital streaming platforms.
Naturally, on April 20th.
“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,” said Chris Taylor, eOne’s Global President, Music & Live, in a statement. “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.”
That’s dope and all, but it’d be nice if they added some of the extras too like the Extended Club Mix of “Let Me Ride” and “Puffin’ on Blunts and Drankin’ Tanqueray.”
