“Fans and collectors alike are invited to join us on this journey as we revisit one of the most influential hip-hop albums of all time. Stay tuned for all the latest updates and don’t miss your chance to own a piece of music history,” the company wrote in part.
From his days in NWA to today, Dr. Dre has been one of the most influential Hip Hop stars of the modern era.
That’s why it was unsurprising when the “Fuck Wit’Dre Day” rapper received the distinction of having the “greatest Hip Hop beat of all time” by Spotify’s RapCaviar.
The streaming platform’s dedicated rap channel ranked the top 50 Hip Hop beats ever made in celebration of the genre’s 50th birthday on May 11 and gave the esteemed title to Dre’s 2001 hit “Still D.R.E.” featuring Snoop Dogg.
Produced by Dre, Scott Storch and Mel-Man and anchored by an iconic piano melody, “Still D.R.E.” held the top spot over other classic tracks like Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones Pt. 2,” Clipse’s “Grindin,’” Biggie’s “Who Shot Ya?” and Lil Wayne’s “A Milli.”
