Death Row Records Comes to Bandcamp with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg Classics
Albums from 2Pac, Daz Dillinger, Tha Doggpound and Kurupt are also included
Published Jun 04, 2020While Dr. Dre's The Chronic finally came to streaming services in April, his seminal 1992 debut is now heading up a new Bandcamp profile for Death Row Records.
The label's profile on the site slots The Chronic in alongside Death Row catalogue staples including Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle, 2Pac's All Eyes on Me and Tha Doggpound's Dogg Food. You can revisit these four acclaimed releases in the players below.
Death Row's profile also currently features Daz Dillinger's Retaliation, Revenge & Get Back, Kurupt's Against the Grain and the soundtrack to 2003's Dysfunktional Family with Eddie Griffin.
In recent months, artists including Porcupine Tree, Cadence Weapon, Sonic Youth and Emeralds have launched Bandcamp profiles to share catalogue rarities and efforts not currently available through larger streaming services.
Tomorrow (June 5), Bandcamp will once again waive its revenue share to assist artists and labels affected by coronavirus lockdowns, with many creatives already announcing plans give earnings to support racial and social justice initiatives.
The Death Row Records catalogue is currently owned by Entertainment One (eOne), which was acquired by American toymaker Hasbro last August.
