The Death Row Catalog has returned to streaming services across the board tonight.
Last month, Snoop and Death Row exclusively partnered with TikTok to bring the music to its independent distribution platform, SoundOn. It was then announced that it will also be coming to other platforms soon.
In a statement issued on February 14, Snoop Dogg said: “Since I took Death Row off streaming almost a year ago, not a day goes by without people asking me to put it back up. As the Super Bowl rolled around, I knew fans would be looking for the music from our iconic performance in 2022, so I wanted to reintroduce the most historic catalog to the people. I reached out to the folks at TikTok to make more history…enjoy ya’ll.”
