About this deal

Dre celebrates the 30th anniversary of his magnum opus, The Chronic by announcing the album will be re-released by its original distributor, Interscope Records which worked The Chronic in 1992 via its relationship with Death Row Records. The album was certified triple platinum within a year of its release with support from the singles “Nuthin' But a ‘G’ Thang,” “Fuck Wit' Dre Day (And Everybody’s Celebratin'),” and “Let Me Ride,” which won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance in 1994. The Chronic is an undisputed landmark recording that built upon the groundbreaking aesthetics of his legendary Compton group, N. It's Funny That Even Though It Is A 1LP Pressing It Sounds A Million Times More Natural And More Balanced Than The 2LP Remaster Which Sounds Unbearably Goosed In The Bass And Compressed To Shit By Comparison.

Also, weirdly, my second disc is noticeably thinner/lighter than the first disc, though it plays fine. Has the runouts 100% matching this and the cover on the back does not have 2021 year like the Target one, and matches this cover. Pitchfork also holds the seminal album in high standing, saying The Chronic lives on as a “timeless show of strength” and “gave shape to L. Not as bad as Doggystyle's digital remaster, but come on… when comparing it with an original CD, or even with the Spotify version, it sounds clear to me that the sound on this one is way too dull.They should've pressed it as a clear disc with the potleaf design they used on the backcover embedded in the vinyl, that would've been sick. The album also spawned three top 40 hits on the Hot 100, including top ten records with "Nuthin' But a “G” Thang" (No. This reissue can be identified by the different catalog number, the arrangement of the logos printed on the labels and by the UPC barcode number printed on the back cover of the jacket. The album’s cover was created in the style of the artwork for Zig-Zag rolling papers and the term “chronic” is used for high-grade marijuana. It now turns a hard-to-believe 30 years old so gets this special anniversary reissue on Interscope across four sides of vinyl.

Dre samples a Parliament song released in 1975: "Mothership Connection (Star Child)" from the album "Mothership Connection" on Casablanca Records.Again I have many other cassettes to confirm it's not my player (twin decks, both sound the same) but the high end on this sounds like white noise almost. That particular record, man, that’s like, I would say the toughest record that I’ve recorded in my career because, you know, it was right after my separation with Ruthless, and I was in survival mode. Tough and uncompromising, a sophisticated album with a game changing concept, The Chronic took the West Coast sound from a regional phenomena and made it global, selling more than six million copies.
