Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg’s Death Row Releases Pulled From Streaming Platforms
‘The Chronic’ and ‘Doggystyle’ are among the label’s landmark albums that have gone missing since Snoop Dogg bought the label.
Is Snoop Dogg gearing up for Death Row Records’ new era by pulling all its music from streaming services?
After buying the iconic brand and catalog last month and promising to transform it into “an NFT label” operating in the metaverse, fans were perplexed this weekend to find several key albums missing from all streaming services. Snoop appears to have removed albums including Dr. Dre‘s 1992 debut The Chronic, his own seven-times platinum 1993 debut Doggystyle and Kurupt and Daz Dillinger‘s Tha Dogg Pound project’s 1995 Dogg Food from streaming services.
2pac‘s two 1996 Death Row albums, All Eyez On Me and The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, remain on streaming, since they are no longer a part of Death Row catalog that Snoop acquired from the Blackstone-controlled MNRK Music Group (formerly eOne Music).
Reps for Snoop, Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music did not respond to requests for comment at time of publishing.
