Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue speaks about Apple Music during Apple WWDC on June 8, 2015 in San Francisco, California.

Apple Music was released today, but the streaming service has one things going for it that others don't... "The Chronic" by Dr. Dre.

Apple's new music streaming service, Apple Music, went global Tuesday nearly a month after the company announced that it was going to be released.

They're charging about $10 a month for users to stream all of the music they want from the company's catalog. That price point puts it in the same category as competitors like Spotify and Rhapsody. But it's not just the new program that's creating buzz, it's also which artists and albums they're going to be streaming exclusively on the platform.

One of those albums is an L.A. classic: "The Chronic" by Dr. Dre. It's also the first time that the iconic album has gone digital. 

Take Two contributor Oliver Wang joined host A Martinez to talk about why this is such a big deal.
