Dr. Dre’s attorney denies that Snoop Dogg owns Dre’s “The Chronic” album, after acquiring Death Row Records

Dr. Dre’s lawyer denies that Snoop Dogg owns “The Chronic” album

Last month, it was announced that Snoop Dogg had officially become the new owner of Death Row Records. That came after the legendary hip-hop record label had been going through bankruptcy, since 2006. Snoop also went on to release his new album “Bacc On Death Row.” That release happened several days before Snoop’s Super Bowl LVI halftime show, in Inglewood, CA.

Snoop also claimed that he owns Dr. Dre’s 1992 debut studio album, “The Chronic.” This project was released under Death Row, and regarded as one of the biggest hip-hop albums of all-time. This claim was made during an interview with TIDAL’s Elliot Wilson, a few days ago.

“As far as 2Pac’s masters, 2Pac’s masters came back to him last year. But I got a great relationship with his estate, and I’m pretty sure we’re going to be able to work something out … to continue some Death Row 2Pac business now that Snoop Dogg is in control of Death Row. Same with Dr. Dre and The Chronic. I got The Chronic album. I got Doggystyle, Tha Doggfather, Murder Was the Case, Dogg Food, Above the Rim. I got all those records.”

Now, Dre’s lawyer is denying that Snoop has ownership of this album. This all comes after Dre also performed at the Super Bowl, with Snoop.

“There are false reports out regarding ownership by Death Row of Dr. Dre’s The Chronic,” said Howard King, to Complex in a statement. “Dr. Dre owns 100 percent of The Chronic.”

The Chronic originally debuted at number three, on the Billboard 200 chart. It was led by singles such as “Nuthin But A G Thang,” ft. Snoop Dogg and “Dre Day,” ft. Snoop. The album is also 3x platinum in the US. Dre reached a divorce settlement with his estranged wife, Nicole Young, over a month ago, as Dre had to pay $100 million. A few years ago, Nicole even claimed that she owns the trademark to “The Chronic” title.
