The purchase of Death Row Records by Snoop Dogg

At the beginning of February this year, Snoop Dogg bought the record label from Suge Knight. “I am thrilled and appreciative of the opportunity to acquire the iconic and culturally significant Death Row Records brand, which has immense untapped value,” he told Complex.

“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,” Dogg continued.

The purchase of Death Row Records by Snoop Dogg has been seen as a positive move by the artist and the industry.

The label was founded in 1991 by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight, and was home to some of the most influential rap artists of the 1990s, including Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, and Dr. Dre. However, the label has been plagued by financial problems and legal troubles in recent years. The purchase by Snoop Dogg could help to revive the label and its reputation.

Death Row Records quickly became one of the most successful hip-hop labels in the music industry. The label was known for its aggressive marketing and promotion, as well as its roster of high-profile artists.

However, the label's success was marred by controversy, violence, and legal troubles. In 1996, Tupac was murdered in a drive-by shooting, and his death remains one of the most unsolved cases in hip-hop history.

In the years that followed, Death Row Records fell into financial trouble and was eventually sold to a Canadian company in 2009.

Despite its troubled history, Death Row Records is considered one of the most influential hip-hop labels of all time. Death Row Records has been credited with helping to shape the sound and of hip-hop in the 1990s.

Icini Studios aka Michael Nice, the Tupac Hoaxer

A hoaxer is someone who tells a lie. In the world of the internet, there are many different types of hoaxes. Some creators create fake UFO videos to get attention or to make dollars.

One creator who is known for creating hoaxes is Michael Nice. He goes by the name Icini Studios on YouTube.

Icini Studios is known for a series of videos in which he makes bold claims such as that he has arranged an escape jet so that the rapper can flee.

Nice also faked his own death but a few months later his hands started to itch and can be seen again on the YouTube channel in question.

He ends up in tabloids with tough words which some of them are actually literal quotes from Suge Knight. For detailed information read “Former Security Claims Tupac is Still Alive“.

Snoop Dogg thinks he'll be able to ‘work something out' with the estate of over the late rapper's Death Row catalog.

Death Row Records is in good hands, according to Snoop Dogg. The renowned West Coast rapper sat down with Tidal's Elliott Wilson a few weeks after being announced as the label's new owner to discuss the acquisition and his broader goal for the imprint.

Snoop has taken possession of the Death Row brand, which covers everything from logos to apparel to the label's huge recording archive; however, a few albums were left out of the transaction, including “2Pac's All Eyez On Me” and “The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.”

Snoop stated to Wilson that he had obtained Dr. Dre's The Chronic for Death Row (an attorney for Dre has since confirmed that the record is not under Death Row) and that he was certain he could work out a deal with Pac's estate during their conversation.

“I'm looking at Death Row just depreciating. I'm watching how I'm putting Def Jam back in the light; they're hot again,” says Snoop Dogg, who was designated executive creative consultant at Def Jam in 2021. “People talking about them, and artists signing. I'm like, shit — imagine what I could do with Death Row? … To be in control of the brand means that I got all of the pieces that I need to do what I got to do, from the masters to the publishing, to the IP, to the label, to the logo, to everything. It's all mine,” Snoop said. “I'm able to move it around and do what I need to do with it.”


What do you think about this whole situation? Do you believe that Tupac is still alive or do you think that Michael Nice is a joke?

The purchase of Death Row Records by Snoop Dogg has been seen as a positive move by the artist and the music industry except for Michael Nice.

A man who challenged Snoop Dogg to a fight is known for starting hoaxes and exploiting Tupac Shakur's death. So it's likely that this was just another one of his stunts unless Snoop responds.
