Snoop Dogg Claims He Owns The Masters To 'The Chronic'

Snoop Dogg says that since he acquired Death Row Records, he now owns the masters to Dr. Dre's The Chronic.

"To be in control of the brand means that I got all of the pieces that I need to do what I got to do, from the masters to the publishing, to the IP, to the label, to the logo, to everything," he told TIDAL. "It's all mine. I'm able to move it around and do what I need to do with it. As far as 2Pac's masters, 2Pac's masters came back to him last year."

He also said: "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. 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."
