Snoop Dogg is the new owner of Death Row Records. He plans to release his album “B.O.D.R.” on Death Row this Friday. A report from Business Wire reveals that Snoop acquired the label from the Blackstone-controlled MNRK Music Group. Snoop first joined Death Row in 1993, where he shared his debut record, “Doggystyle.” The album includes hits like “Gin & Juice,” “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?,” and “Murder Was The Case,” featuring Dat N*gga Daz.
“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,” Snoop said in a press release shared by Blackstone, adding that 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.”
