Lost Snoop Dogg Songs Dug Up
"We are seeing historic enthusiasm for the Death Row catalogue across all types of our sales accounts and media outlets in North America," commented WIDEawake / Death Row CEO Lara Lavi. "We are grateful to fans and retailers everywhere for the incredible launch of WIDEawake and look forward to working with them in our upcoming release schedule."
Iconic in stature and in essence, Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr. (or Snoop Dogg) has carved out a permanent place in musical history. Undeniably, the rapper, producer, actor, entrepreneur, coach, husband and father, has performed the most unique balancing act that hip hop has ever witnessed. Never short on vision, drive or ambition, the sharp talking wordsworth has managed to redefine and reinvent himself over the course of his fifteen year career, each time revealing a distinctive cache from the depths within. His rhythmic cadences are classic in nature and his demeanor is as laid back and effortless as the brand extensions he has created for himself. Signing with Death Row in 1992 Snoop's "Doggystyle" and The Doggfather" has sold over 7 million copies around the world, and still places on the American and Canadian Hip Hop Album Chart to this day.
Lavi is equally enthusiastic over the new business model for the label, which includes a stronger tie-in with fans and artists. "There is a lot to celebrate. As we kick-off this release, we are also determined to raise the bar for royalty statements and being honest in this industry with all artists -- past and future. Snoop has done so much for both Death Row Records and the West Coast by spawning such artists as Tha Dogg Pound, Nate Dogg, and The LBC Crew. We hope this serves him the justice he rightfully deserves."
