Snoop Dogg recently dropped a new album titled B.O.D.R. (Bacc on Death Row). The rapper partnered with blockchain gaming platform Gala Games, which released the NFT LP version via Gala Music on Feb. 9, 2022, of course, at 4:20 p.m. PST, reports Rolling Stone. Unlike traditional album sales, Snoop’s B.O.D.R. album is being sold as a Snoop Stash Box, and quantities are limited.
There are only 25,000 Snoop Stash Boxes available for purchase, each with a price tag of $5,000. Inside the Stash Box you’ll find one of the 17 tracks featured on the B.O.D.R. album, but in the form of an NFT. There will only be “1,470 NFTs of each song,” so if you want to be the proud owner of one of Snoop’s newest songs, you’ll need to act quickly.
Snoop Dogg’s digital album (the Snoop Stash Box) will be on sale through Feb. 13. If you miss out on the opportunity or don’t want to spend the $5,000, you’ll have the option to purchase a non-NFT version of Snoop's new album B.O.D.R. on Feb. 11.
As if this news wasn’t exciting enough, especially for all you Snoop fans out there, it has also been announced that Snoop Dogg recently acquired Death Row Records. Yes, the same label he debuted on as an artist.
How much did Snoop Dogg pay for Death Row Records?
Snoop Dogg’s portfolio has received quite an upgrade over the last few months. Not only did the hip hop legend become the owner of Snoopverse, which requires a specific pass for entry, but he recently added Death Row Records to his list of assets. On Feb. 9, Snoop took to Twitter where he shared details of the sale.
So, how much did Snoop pay for his acquisition of Death Row, the label founded back in 1992? Unfortunately, that figure hasn't been released yet. We do know that after the label ran into financial troubles in 2006, it landed in bankruptcy proceedings, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The label was then sold at auction for $18 million with WIDEawake Entertainment becoming its lucky owner.
Over the next few years, Death Row Records was shuffled from one company to the next, eventually landing in the hands of Blackstone and MNRK.
