The label are also re-releasing several classic hip hop albums...
TUPAC SHAKUR, SNOOP DOGG, DR DRE and ICE CUBE are among the artists to feature on a DEATH ROW RECORDS ‘GREATEST HITS’ collection set for release in early April.
The album, tracing the label’s growth and development since it was established in 1992, will now be released on April 2, not on March 26 as previously announced.
Included on the compilation are tracks such as ‘Nuthin’ But A G Thang’ (Dr Dre), ‘Gin & Juice’ and ‘Murder Was The Case’ (Snoop Dogg), ‘Natural Born Killaz’ (Dre and Ice Cube) and ‘Keep Ya Head Up’ (Tupac).
The entire Death Row back catalogue is also set for re-release. Hip hop classics such as Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ and Snoop Dogg’s ‘ Murder Was The Case’ will follow on April 16.
The activity is set to coincide with the expected release from prison of Death Row boss Suge Knight. Knight has been inside since 1997, when he was jailed for a parole violation, following a 1992 assault case.
