The Chronic is the debut studio album by American hip hop recording artist Dr. Dre. It was released on December 15, 1992, by his own record label Death Row Records and distributed by Interscope Records and Priority Records. Recording sessions for the album took place in June 1992 at Death Row Studios in Los Angeles and at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood. The album is named after a slang term for high-grade cannabis, and its cover is an homage to Zig-Zag rolling papers.

Dr. Released December 15, 1992. The Chronic Tracklist. 1. The Chronic (Intro) (Ft. Snoop Dogg) Lyrics. The Chronic was created in the aftermath of the . riots in April 1992, and several vocal samples from people on the streets were used on songs such as The Day the Niggaz Took Over and "Lil Ghetto Boy. Dre also fired some shots at his former . A group mate Eazy-E on the tracks Fuck Wit' Dre Day (And Everybody’s Celebratin') and Bitches Ain’t Shit. Many of the songs were demoed and created at Dr. Dre’s house in Calabasas and recorded at the SOLAR Records studio Dre & .

Here Dre established his patented G-funk sound: fat, blunted c beats, soulful backing vocals, and live instruments in the rolling basslines and whiny synths. What's impressive is that Dre crafts tighter singles than his inspiration, George Clinton - he's just as effortlessly funky, and he has a better feel for a hook, a knack that improbably landed gangsta rap on the pop charts. But none of The Chronic's legions of imitators were as rich in personality, and that's due in large part to Dre's monumental discovery, Snoop Doggy Dogg

This debut solo album from D. re titled The Chronic was released on December 15, 1992 by Death Row Records. Produced by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight.

Listen free to Dr. Dre – The Chronic (The Chronic (Intro), Fuck Wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin') and more). The Chronic is the solo debut album of American hip hop artist Dr. Dre, released December 15, 1992, on his own record label Death Row Records, and distributed by Priority Records. The album is named after a slang term for high-grade marijuana, and its cover is an homage to Zig-Zag rolling papers.

Many have tried, and all have failed to make an impact like The Chronic, including Dr. Dre himself with his follow-up album 2001, which had great songs and great beats, (who could forget the classic line, "Smoke weed everyday!" from "The Next Episode"?) but never reached the level that his debut ever did.

Album · 1992 · 15 Songs. Fact: Dre’s solo debut is one of the greatest albums ever. The mix of mellow tempos, catchy melodies, and menacing vibes elevated the G-funk sound and was so fresh that it altered gangsta rap to the mainstream and suburban streets.

The Chronic' is Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg's celebration of the hedonism of the ghetto gangster lifestyle- Weed, money, women, and killing. Dr. Dre creates catchy rhymes and raps with authority. His portrayal is hard and confrontational and the magical G-Funk beats and sounds he produces are rarely anything less than fantastic. You can tell that Dre did a lot of experimenting in the studio to develop his sound. The guest appearances are from RBX, Daz, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Lady of Rage and Snoop Doggy Dogg. The Chronic (Intro) - The album begins with a brief intro that features Dre talking in a semi-coherent stream of consciousness style. He uses this time to declare that the era of NWA is over and the era of Death Row Records has begun. This is where you see the first swipe at Eazy, the first of many throughout the album.
