Records from Death Row
Death Row Records is an American record label created in 1991 by The D.O.C., Dr. Dre, Suge Knight, and Dick Griffey. During the 1990s, the label rose to prominence with the release of multi-platinum hip-hop albums by West Coast-based musicians such as Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, and others. At its height, the label earned about $100 million each year. However, it saw a slump with Tupac’s murder, Suge Knight’s incarceration, and the departures of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
Death Row was financially successful, but it was marred by scandals like litigation and violence by musicians and collaborators.The label declared bankruptcy in 2006 and was auctioned off to WIDEawake Entertainment for $18 million in January 2009. WIDEawake’s owner, on the other hand, went bankrupt in 2012, and the label was sold to Entertainment One.
