Hip Hop Legend and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg has acquired the Death Row Records brand from MNRK Music Group.
The deal comes on the heels of Snoop Dogg’s latest album, B.O.D.R being released on February 11, 2022.
Death Row Records has been home to a number of the most historic names in Hip Hop and was Snoop Dogg’s debut label.
Snoop originally joined Death Row in 1993 where he dropped his critically acclaimed debut album, Doggystyle.
Snoop Dogg, now Owner of Death Row Records, said: “I am thrilled and appreciative of the opportunity to acquire the iconic and culturally significant Death Row Records brand, which has immense untapped future value. It feels good to have ownership of the label I was part of at the beginning of my career and as one of the founding members. This is an extremely meaningful moment for me. I would like to personally thank the teams at Blackstone, MNRK and especially David Kestnbaum, who worked collaboratively with me over several months to make this exciting homecoming a reality. I’m looking forward to building the next chapter of Death Row Records.”
