Interscope Records, well-known for its musical innovation and cultural impact, is once again pushing the boundaries of music appreciation. With the launch of the Interscope Vinyl Collective, they are celebrating their illustrious legacy by giving a new life to classic albums.

This subscription series offers music enthusiasts a unique opportunity to own limited-edition vinyl LPs, with a special focus on albums that are making their vinyl debut. The first offering of the Vinyl Collective is none other than a special edition of Dr. Dre’s debut album, “The Chronic.”

“The Chronic” needs no introduction in the world of hip-hop. Dr. Dre’s self-produced debut album not only secured him a legendary status but also played a major role in shaping the West Coast rap scene. Released on December 15, 1992, under the Death Row Records and Interscope, “The Chronic” quickly ascended the Billboard 200, peaking at No.3 and spending an impressive 97 weeks on the chart.

This album was a game-changer for the genre, introducing the world to the talents of Snoop Dogg, and featuring a star-studded lineup of West Coast rappers, including the D.O.C., Warren G, Nate Dogg, Daz, and Kurupt. The record spawned three top 40 hits on the Hot 100, including the iconic “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” featuring Snoop Dogg and “F__k Wit Dre Day”.

On the R&B/Hip-Hop charts, “The Chronic” reigned supreme for eight weeks, while “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” seized the No.1 spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for two weeks. The album’s impact is so enduring that it earned a spot on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” list, with the magazine crediting it for redefining the West Coast hip-hop sound.

Now, thanks to the Interscope Vinyl Collective, “The Chronic” is getting a fresh lease of life. This debut release in the series offers a two-LP set, complete with a limited-edition black jacket and pressed on vibrant chronic-green vinyl. This edition promises to be a must-have for collectors and audiophiles alike. With only 2,500 copies available, each one individually numbered, this is a chance to own a piece of music history.

The excitement doesn’t stop with “The Chronic.” Interscope Records has lined up a series of vinyl releases that promise to excite music lovers. In November, fans can look forward to Obie Trice’s “Cheers,” followed by Juice WRLD’s “Goodbye & Good Riddance” in December. The Interscope Vinyl Collective will be available on the label’s official website
