Dr. Dre hasn't even licensed The Chronic to his own streaming site

Dr. Dre hasn’t licensed his best and most famous record to the streaming site he owns. As Digital Music News pointed out earlier today, Dre’s The Chronic is unavailable on Beats Music. Other Dre records—2001, the instrumental version of 2001—are available, but not Dre’s biggest release.

The rapper has famously kept his work off streaming services like Spotify and Rdio. It’s a move that ultimately contributed to the successful launch of Beats Music, a site that famously bills itself as “artist-friendly.” Beats currently hosts more than 20 million licensed tracks—though again, none of them are “Let Me Ride” or “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang.”
