Snoop Dogg: On Acquiring Death Row Records

Entertainment mogul and rap legend, Snoop Dogg, recently acquired the iconic label Death Row Records from MNRK Music Group, formerly known as Koch Records and eOne Music.

“I am thrilled and appreciative of the opportunity to acquire the iconic and culturally significant Death Row Records brand, which has immense untapped future value. It feels good to have ownership of the label I was part of at the beginning of my career and as one of the founding members,” Snoop Dogg says.

“This is an extremely meaningful moment for me. I would like to personally thank the teams at Blackstone, MNRK, and especially David Kestnbaum, who worked collaboratively with me over several months to make this exciting homecoming a reality. I’m looking forward to building the next chapter of Death Row Records,” Snoop says.

Death Row Records is the brainchild of Dr. Dre, Suge Knight, the D.O.C., and Dick Griffey. Since its inception the label has released sensational albums like Dre’s The Chronic; Snoop’s Doggystyle; Above the Rim; Murder Was the Case; 2Pac’s All Eyez On Me, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory; Snoop’s The Doggfather; Kurupt’s Against The Grain; Dysfunktional Family, etc.

David Kestnbaum, a Senior Managing Director at Blackstone, said: “We at Blackstone are strong supporters of the artist and creator community in our entertainment investments. We are excited to put the Death Row Records brand back in the hands of a legend like Snoop Dogg. We wish him success in the years ahead as the brand moves forward under his leadership and vision.”

Snoop Dogg: Sexual Assault Allegations

Snoop Dogg and a former employee, have been implicated in a sexual assault lawsuit filed on Wednesday.

The lady whose identity was not disclosed alleged that the incident happened after attending Snoop’s concert in 2003, according to a filing in the U.S District Court, California.

After the concert, the woman and her friend went back to Snoop Dogg’s studio in the company of the rapper and his friend Donald Campbell.

The statement alleges that Jane Doe, the victim, was taken to Campbell’s home after she fell asleep in his car. He woke her up by 4 AM and forced her to perform oral sex on him, the lawsuit says.

“Due to his dominance, and his position of power over her, including his ability to hire and fire her and ensure that she would never be hired in his industry again,” the victim says she gave in to Snoop’s demands for her to perform oral sex on him at his “Snoop Dogg Double G News Network.”

She alleges that Campbell forced her to accompany him to the taping, after harassing her the night before.

This event is being brought to light after the woman unsuccessfully attempted to resolve the issue privately on Tuesday. 

Snoop Dogg and his team have not officially commented on the sexual assault allegations. However, the rapper made a post two days ago with the words: Gold Digger Season is here, be careful Nefews. Keep ya guards up. And. Keep ya circle small.
