Snoop Dogg acquired Death Row Records in February but select 90’s albums from Dr. Dre and The Dogg Pound are no longer on streaming services.

With Snoop Dogg showing interest in turning Death Row Records into an “NFT label”, it appears that select albums from the legendary gangster rap label are no longer on streaming platforms. Snoop’s 1993 debut Doggystyle has gone amiss, along with The Chronic from Dr. Dre and Tha Dogg Pound debut Dogg Food. 2Pac‘s All Eyez on Me and posthumous album The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory are still available to stream, as the label no longer owns the rights to his master recordings.

In a recent interview with TIDAL, Snoop shared details about the label’s catalog.

“As far as 2Pac’s masters, 2Pac’s masters came back to him last year. But I got a great relationship with his estate, and I’m pretty sure we’re going to be able to work something out … to continue some Death Row 2Pac business now that Snoop Dogg is in control of Death Row,” he said. “Same with Dr. Dre and The Chronic. I got The Chronic album. I got Doggystyle, Tha Doggfather, Murder Was the Case, Dogg Food, Above the Rim. I got all those records.”

While Billboard reported that 2Pac’s albums are are technically “no longer on the label”, The Chronic might not return to Death Row Records until 2023. Snoop hasn’t confirmed if he ordered removal of the albums, but earlier this month, Dr. Dre’s attorney Howard King countered Snoop’s revelation, sharing with Complex that Dr. Dre owns “100% of The Chronic.”

Days before headlining the Super Bowl LVI halftime show in February, Snoop announced that he’d officially acquired Death Row Records.
