Snoop Dogg has been busy working on revitalizing Death Row Records, which includes making sure it's classic catalog stays intact. After some fans wondered about the future of Dr. Dre's The Chronic album on Death Row, the founding member of the iconic label has provided an update.
On Wednesday night, March 30, Snoop uploaded a photo of him and Dre rocking out in the studio. In his caption, the BODR rapper bluntly said that Aftermath founder's debut solo album was "bac home."
"The chronic is bac home," Snoop wrote with a gang of emojis starting from the house to the lock.
When Snoop acquired Death Row in February, there were a few albums that weren't automatically included in the deal like Dr. Dre's first album as well as projects from 2Pac. However, at the top of March, Snoop revealed in a recent interview that he was able to grab The Chronic, Doggystyle, the Above The Rim soundtrack, which was also released via Death Row, and more.
“It’s all mine," Snoop said. "I’m able to move it around and do what I need to do with it. As far as 2Pac’s masters, 2Pac’s masters came back to him last year. But I got a great relationship with his estate, and I’m pretty sure we’re going to be able to work something out … to continue some Death Row 2Pac business now that Snoop Dogg is in control of Death Row. Same with Dr. Dre and The Chronic. I got The Chronic album. I got Doggystyle, Tha Doggfather, Murder Was the Case, Dogg Food, Above the Rim. I got all those records.”
At the moment, The Chronic isn't back on every streaming service just yet, but Snoop's Doggystyle is making its way back so clearly there's progress being made.
