Long Beach legend and Doggystyle creator Snoop Dogg has revealed that he wants to re-sign the former Death Row singer Danny Boy after videos of him have resurfaced online.
The ‘Gin And Juice’ rapper took to Instagram on September 19th to repost one of the many clips Danny Boy has uploaded to social media and was evidently impressed that the 45-year-old vocalist can still hit notes flawlessly.
Under Snoop’s post, the emcee wrote, “Your seat on Death Row awaits you [Earth emoji, microphone emoji, music-note emoji, microphone emoji, Earth emoji] @dannyboysteward.”
Few know about Danny Boy as he was a figure behind the scenes. However, he was an integral part of the Death Row roster and helped some of the legends produce their best music.
The Chicago vocalist (real name Danny Stewart) sang choruses for multiple tracks on All Eyez on Me and The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory. Furthermore, he sang backing vocals on the Murder Was the Case soundtrack in 1994, which became one of the label’s defining records.
Stewart was supposed to release an album on the label in the 1990s. However, the album was shelved and wasn’t released until years later, in 2010, when Death Row was irrelevant under new management. Following the collapse of Death Row in 1998, the singer moved back to Chicago, where he is still based.
Stewart still makes music. However, it is now his secondary priority as he owns a renowned restaurant on Chicago’s West Side. However, since Snoop Dogg acquired Death Row from MNRK Music Group (formerly eOne Music) last year, the singer has been a figure he is eager to get back in the studio with.
