Dr. Dre "The Chronic" Turns 30, and Here is Drop 2 of “The Chronic Masters” Collection
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dr. Dre's legendary album The Chronic, Interscope Records has collaborated with Trophy to reveal the second drop of “The Chronic Masters” collection, a series of unique and collectible merchandise. While the first drop, released in June, highlights replicas of three stand out session tapes, this next drop dives deeper into Dr. Dre’s legendary album with a new limited run of unique prints and memorabilia.
The highlight of this new collection, which drops today, includes “The Masters” Print, an archival pigment print featuring imagery of the official The Chronic master tapes side A and B, photographed by Jeremy Deputat. Additional prints include, "The Session Stacks" - imagery of the complete The Chronic session tapes as well as “The Session Grid” print - showcasing the original session tapes from each single that made it onto the project. The most limited collectible of the drop, “The Session Tapes Stacks Replica”, is available for a lucky 30 fans which features a lifesize replica of the master tapes when they were re-discovered 30 years later. Additionally, five limited edition skateboard decks, and four limited edition tees are also available—all available for sale via microsite interscope.com/TheChronicMasters.
Interscope Records conceptualized "The Chronic Masters"with Trophy, the creative agency that transcends music & culture through tailor-made content & collectibles. Jason Sangerman, Interscope Senior Vice President, worked hand in hand with Trophy co-founders Jeremy Deputat, James Larese, and Jesse Cory and Dan Armand of the Detroit-based 1XRUN, who have been producing collectibles for UMG since 2014. Together, they've peeled back layers of hip-hop history to provide fans with this exclusive collection of memorabilia.
