Dr. Dre The Chronic 25th Anniversary Mixtape

    To celebrate the 25th anniversary of West Coast classic The Chronic, Dr. Dre’s debut solo LP, our buddy DJ Matman has crafted a dope mix of album tracks such as “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” and “Let Me Ride,” alternative versions, remixes, and original sample material from the likes of Parliament, Donny Hathaway, Clarence Reid, Whodini, and Leon Haywood, amongst others.

    Roll down those windows, light up a blunt, and enjoy!
