(HipHopDX) – Snoop Dogg appeared on a recent episode of Drink Champs where he discussed a myriad of topics with co-hosts DJ EFN and N.O.R.E. Among them, the new owner of the Death Row Records brand explained why he decided to remove several Death Row releases from digital streaming platforms, a move that upset fans of the iconic West Coast rap label.
“First thing I did was snatch all the music off those platforms traditionally known to people, because those platforms don’t pay,” he said around the 1:51:00 mark. “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.”
