Dr. Dre’s classic HIp-Hop solo debut album The Chronic will now be inducted into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress. The album will head into the registry along with the Mister Rogers Neighborhood album, Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You,” and Tina Turner’s “Private Dancer.”
Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden states The National Recording Registry is “the evolving playlist of the American soundscape,” Entertainment Weekly reports. The new inductions into the registry are highlighted for their “cultural, historical and aesthetic importance to the nation’s recorded sound heritage.”
The Chronic was released 27 years ago and led by the singles “Nuthin’ but a “G” Thang”, “Fuck wit Dre Day” and “Let Me Ride.”
Congrats to Dr. Dre!
