Snoop Dogg officially became the new owner of the iconic label Death Row Records. That is the very same label that young Snoop joined in 1993 after Dr. Dre discovered him in the early 1990s. The label put out many iconic albums, but some of the biggest items in the catalog are not included in the new sale.

Snoop Dogg’s recently made remarks that he owns Dre’s debut album. Dr. Dre’s attorney, Howard King, has now issued a statement saying that his client still owns The Chronic. Snoop had announced earlier this week that his acquisition of Death Row Records earned him The Chronic.

There are false reports out regarding ownership by Death Row of Dr. Dre’s The Chronic. Dr. Dre owns 100 percent of The Chronic.

Snoop stated in February that he had reached an agreement to take over Death Row only days before his appearance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Snoop stated he now owns The Chronic, Murder Was The Case, and several other records in an interview with Tidal’s Elliott Wilson on Friday.

In February, Snoop released his new album B.O.D.R. via Death Row Records, his first release from the iconic label under his ownership. Snoop Dogg has a clear vision for Death Row Records and he is pretty confident he’ll be able to work something out with 2Pac’s estate. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more.
