Snoop Dogg says he removed Death Row albums from streaming platforms, after becoming the label’s owner, due to those platforms not paying [VIDEO]

Snoop Dogg explains removing Death Row albums from streaming

A few months ago, Snoop Dogg officially became the new owner of the legendary Death Row Records. Snoop blew up as a star back in the early 1990s, as a signee of this record label. His 1992 “Doggstyle” album became his breakthrough project, after signing with Death Row.

Snoop was able to buy Death Row from Blackstone investment firm and MNRK Music Group. During that same time, he put otu his new “Bacc On Death Row” album, before his Super Bowl LVI performance, in Inglewood, CA.

Over the last several months, many fans have also noticed that many classic albums released under Death Row, have been removed from streaming platforms. These include Dr. Dre’s 1992 debut album, “The Chronic,” and even Snoop’s Doggystyle album.

Now, Snoop is addressing this situation, in his new “Drink Champs” podcast interview. Snoop claims that these platforms simply don’t pay artists enough, in this era. He also added that the record labels are the only ones benefitting from the streaming platforms.

“First thing I did was snatch all the music off those platforms traditionally known to people, because those platforms don’t pay,” Snoop explained. “And those platforms get millions and millions of streams, and nobody gets paid other than the record labels.”
