The former home of Dr Dre, 2Pac and Snoop Dogg is auctioned
Death Row Records has been sold off at auction for 12 Million. In its hey day the label had artists including Dr Dre, 2Pac and Snoop Dogg signed with them. It was founded by Suge Knight and eventually went bankrupt in 2005 after financial problems and alleged illegal activities. A company called Global Music Group has now bought the firm- giving it rights to classic hip hop albums like Doggystyle and The Chronic. They now also own unreleased recordings from dead rapper Tupac Shakur.
