As the globe gets ready to celebrate a strange 4/20, there’s one album sure to be soundtracking everybody’s party, Dr Dre’s The Chronic is now available on streaming platforms.
4/20, the celebration of all things marijuana is now a worldwide event, as smokers spark one up at 4:20 pm on April 20th every year. This year was set to be one of the biggest events considering the triple date alignment but has since been swept under the carpet amid lockdown. At least now we have some good news.
Now, Dr Dre’s iconic album The Chronic will be available on streaming sites Spotify and Tidal, as Entertainment One, who now owns the Death Ro Record back catalogue, has pushed them on to other sites. The record was previously only available to stream on Apple Music.
“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 president Chris Taylor said 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 artefacts 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 album is considered one of the finest hip-hop albums of all time and ranks among one of Dre’s best work. It’s strong affiliation with weed smoking has always made this a stoner’s choice and now 4/20 has come with the perfect gift.
