Dr. Dre's opus The Chronic turned 30 years old in December of last year. The groundbreaking compilation album introduced the world to Snoop Dogg, RBX, Tha Dogg Pound and The Lady of Rage as well as Death Row Records.
For the first time, Dr. Dre is making some rare collectibles from The Chronic available to the public. The first drop consists of session tape prints, the session boxes with the master tapes and four exclusive skate decks.
