Snoop Dogg Reveals Why Death Row Catalog and Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic,’ Was Removed From DSPs
Snoop Dogg joined DJ EFN and N.O.R.E. on a recent edition of Drink Champs to talk about a variety of issues. Among them, the new owner of Death Row Records explained why he removed certain Death Row titles from digital streaming services. A decision that angered fans of the legendary West Coast rap company.
“First thing I did was snatch all the music off those platforms traditionally known to people, because those platforms don’t pay,” he stated. “And those platforms get millions of millions of streams, and nobody gets paid other than the record labels. So what I wanted to do is snatch my music off, create a platform similar to Amazon, Netflix, Hulu. It’ll be a Death Row app, and the music, in the meantime, will live in the metaverse.”
Snoop Dogg on His Mother’s Death
The rapper also mentioned his mother Beverly Tate, who died in October 2021. Snoop went on stage at Big Night Live in Boston only hours after revealing the news.
Instead of canceling the show, he addressed the audience. He said, “I wasn’t even gonna come out here and perform tonight ’cause my mother passed away earlier tonight, but in the spirit of the people of Boston, I wanted to come out here and represent for y’all because this is what my mama would have wanted me to do.”
