Death Row Records officially presented their new online shop deathrowofficial.com, putting out various clothing items as well as types of vinyl and cassettes of some of the company’s greatest ever projects.
The company burst onto the scene in the early ’90s and produced some of rap’s greatest ever albums. The breakthrough came in 1992 when one of the founders and owners of the company – Dr. Dre himself, released his most iconic album to this day – “The Chronic”. Many people in the industry from that period argued that the stylistics of the album had forever changed the entire complexion of gangster rap in general. Gangster rap had all of a sudden become more smooth than aggressive.
The commercial success of “The Chronic” was unprecedented and in less than a year 3 million copies were sold. Later on, the album would pack a place in the Rolling Stones’ 500 Greatest Albums of all Time list, whilst also earning a spot in Time Magazine’s list of 100 Greatest albums of all time.
The success story of Death Row Records doesn’t end there, however, as the company managed to record and release another 2 of rap’s greatest ever albums – Snoop Dogg’s “Doggystyle” and Tupac’s “All Eyez on Me”, along with the all-time classic single “California Love”. It’s fair to say we’re talking about a real juggernaut in rap music recording.
Now, in 2021, Death Row is giving all rap fans a special treat. The company’s officially opened its new shop and you can take a look at all the merchandise in the link below. Part of the offers include different types of t-shirts, hoodies, and hats, but the bigger threat lies in the following musical items.
Death row has released 2XL vinyl of all of the upper-mentioned legendary albums, produced in the label’s studios. This includes vinyl of “The Chronic”, “Doggystyle”, “Tha Doggfather” and “All Eyez on Me”. For some of you who love to have a cassette of your favorite tunes, Death Row is also selling cassettes of the legendary albums, including a double cassette of “All Eyez On Me” and “The 7 Day Theory”, one of Tupac’s posthuman albums.
The cassettes can be pre-ordered, whilst the delivery of the vinyl will take up to 3-4 days only. We’re sure that quite a few of you rap-lovers will take an interest in some of the upper-mentioned items.
