Dr. Dre Tribute Album Mixes Old School Legends with Hip Hop’s Next Wave of Superstars on the Rise- January 10th, 2012
For Immediate Release-
Dr. Dre is as famous to rap as Michael Jordan is to hoops in this day and age. Whether your 15 or 45, you have grown up in an era of Dr. Dre’s productions, be it via NWA’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’ or D.O.C.’s ‘No One Can Do it Better’ in the 80s, or Snoop Dogg’s ‘Doggy Style’ or the classic ‘Chronic’ LP circa Dre’s Death Row era that ran the radio in the 1990s. Or Eminem or 50 Cent in the Aftermath era of dominance over the course of the Millennium’s first Decade.
Now Re-Invention/Versailles Records brings fans the first definitive, multi-generational Dre retrospective with ‘The Chronic 2011: A Millennium Tribute to the Songs of Dr. Dre’ , a collection of hits featuring every era of Dre’s 25+ multi-platinum career shaping hip-hop into the mainstream music style it is today. Featuring performances by an eclectic collection of hip hop legends and some of the industry’s hottest newcomers, including Bay Area legend Spice 1 (‘Its Funky Enough’), Big Syke of 2Pac’s THUG LIFE/Outlawz crews (‘F###You’), Domino (‘Nuthin’ But a G Thang’), Bronx Style Bob (‘Let Me Ride’), Felicia ‘Snoop’ Pearson from HBO’s The Wire and The Third Family (‘Gin N Juice’), and Bone Thugs N Harmony’s Layzie Bone (‘187 Deep Cover’) among others. Among the next wave of upcoming hip hop stars, including Tyrannosaurus Records artist NOTAR (‘Its Funky Enough’), Nate Sylak (‘Its Funky Enough,’ ‘Dope Man,’ and ‘F### Tha Police’), Leaving Eden (‘I Need a Doctor’), Adonis Butler (‘California Love’), Rose Reiter (‘No More Drama’), Chancellor Warhol & Drupy (‘Natural Born Killers’), Tha Groundhoggz & Sixx (‘Kush’), Vito (‘I Need a Doctor’), DJ F.L.O.Y.D.
