The new store, which you can visit on this link, houses items such as vinyls, CDs & cassettes of iconic albums like Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, Tupac’s All Eyez On Me, Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle and more. It also has plenty of merch like hoodies, T shirts, hats, tote bags, beanies and bandanas.
Death Row was founded by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight in 1991, pushing gangsta rap into mainstream and changing the course of the music industry. Following the release of historic albums like Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, Tupac’s All Eyez On Me and Snoop’s Doggystyle among others, it was embroiled in controversies involving violence and lawsuits.
Death Row Records filed for bankruptcy in 2006 and was auctioned to WIDEawake Entertainment for $18 million in 2009. The owner of WIDEawake then bankrupted in 2012 and the label was sold to Entertainment One. In 2019, toy company Hasbro acquired eOne for $4 billion and now manages the Death Row catalog.
