Dr. Dre's 1992 debut solo album The Chronic has finally been released on streaming services in time for 4/20.

The legendary LP features Dr. Dre's iconic Snoop Dogg collaboration "Nuthin' But A "G" Thang" and "Stranded On Death Row", and marked Dr. Dre's first solo album since leaving N.W.A. the year before.

It also marked the beginning of Dre's producing career. In 1993, he took the reins on Snoop Dogg's debut album Doggystyle.

Chris Taylor, eOne's Global President, Music & Live, says, "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. 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."

Last month, Dr. Dre's The Chronic was among 25 additions to the Library of Congress. This year's applications were narrowed down from over 800.
