Death Row Records creates virtual museum for 30th anniversary

Legendary label Death Row Records has launched a virtual museum to celebrate its 30th anniversary, called ‘The Death Row Experience’.

The label was founded by Dr. Dre, Suge Knight, The D.O.C. and Dick Griffey in 1992, with the virtual museum offering up a unique way for fans to remember what Death Row have done in hip-hop. It remained active until 2006, when they filed for bankruptcy and eventually dissolved two years later.

Death Row played a vital part in the golden era of hip-hop. Some of its most revered releases include the debut solo studio albums for Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg. Those two records were released within a year of each other and became huge international selling records that brought the genre to new ears worldwide.

The museum allows fans to explore an array of historical photos, stories of the label and the artists who made Death Row infamous. Visitors can also discover links to NFTs created by designer TillaVision. It also features a playlist comprised of some of the label’s most known tracks.

Fans will also be able to send in their submissions to the museum from June 30th. They are asking for concert footage, ticket stubs and original photos involving Death Row artists.
