Death Row

Back to the early 90s. It’s the year 1991. Suge Night and Dr. Dre launch established their own Hip-Hop label: Death Row Records. The beginning of a successful story with a significant influence on rap culture.

The label released many great artists: Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg or Dr. Dre himself, just to mention probably the most famous sons of Death Row. First product was The Chronic by Dr. Dre. The most successful one was Snoop’s album Doggystyle. Followed by Tupac’s debut album All Eyez On me, Tupac’s most favorable.

1996: Tupac died. Dr. Dre left Death Row Records to found his own label. Snoop devoted his new album Tha Doggfather to his friend Tupac and quit his cooperation with Death Row too. The label got a new name in 2001 and years later Death Row was bankrupt. But let’s share some good memories with my following selection:
