Death Row Assets Go For Pennies

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

On Thursday, the assets of Death Row records sold for a not-so-impressive $18 million.

The assets apparently included masters of recordings by Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg and other rap pioneers.

In a way, former Death Row big-wig Suge Knight must love this bargain basement sale.

He lost the rights to all of Death Row's stuff to bankruptcy back in 2006 after one of his former partners, a lady named Lydia Harris, successfully sued and won a $107 million case against him.

Once all the lawyers, the IRS and other bankruptcy administrators are paid, the money left over won’t be enough to divide among any of Death Row’s unsecured creditors.

Harris told Blender magazine, "I'm extremely frustrated with the judicial system that has allowed all of the lawyers to be paid and none of the people who were instrumental in creating Death Row Records to receive a dime."

The $18 million dollar auction winner is a Canadian-based company called Wide Awake Holdings.

Is Suge in with the 'winners'?

    Re: ObamaistheMessiah – a distinguished black man? are you half retarded…this man is dispicable, you respect a man who is linked t o the death of Tupac? AHAHAHAAH clearly you don't kno anything buddy.



  9. 9

    Distinguished?? You have to be joking. Are you talking about the same Suge that has done time for assault convictions. Don't forget the drugs, gangs, attempted murder charges, and worst of all — the involvement in Tupac and Big's deaths. He deserves to lose everything.

    this is very sad esp 4 Tupacs masters to be sold like that when his mom practically begged Sug 2 give her his sh^t! if he were alive, he would die fighting for what belonged him.



  14. 14

    Karma is doing her best work on this man.



  15. 15

    Whoa. That pretty much sucks.
    You know Tupac is rolling in his grave right now…..from laughing so hard.

    Re: ObamaistheMessiah – Distinguished black man? There are many Many Distinguished Black men out there, this POS is NOT one of them. One look at his rap sheet can say that for him. Hes a f'ing loser, and I for one am glad he's not going to be making any more money from Tupac or even Snoop.

    Re: ObamaistheMessiah – Distinguish my azzz. There are a ton of black people out there that has a better resumé than that idiot.

    Re: harrybalsac – You are a fucking racist, you fucking White Interloper! January 20th is a Holy Day for the Black Man, as it represents the beginning of the revolution against the White Race and the Jews. For us, January 20th spells the death of the White Race and the ultimate end to racism. Be afraid you White Devils! Destruction is coming to you!!

    DEATH TO THE WHITE RACE! DEATH TO THE JEWS! END RACISM!

    Re: madipset – Suge Knight is indeed a Distinguished Black Man. He has done so much good to liberate our freedoms of expression. You simply hate him because he is Black. The only reason he has a so-called "rap sheet" is because the White Establishment has persecuted him. And he did not murder Tupac. It is a known fact that Tupac was murdered by a White Conspiracy created by President George W. Bush!

    Re: ObamaistheMessiah – "Tupac was murdered by a White Conspiracy created by President George W. Bush!"

    Clinton was President when Tupac was executed, and the East coast rappers were more likely to have had a role in it.

    "January 20th is a Holy Day for the Black Man, as it represents the beginning of the revolution against the White Race and the Jews. For us, January 20th spells the death of the White Race and the ultimate end to racism."

    Until blacks figure out how run a country, let alone a city that isn't a 3rd world violent hellhole, maybe I'd be worried about this happening for a millisecond. Blacks kill more blacks in a single day than the KKK did in a 100 years.

    Re: thomasstatgurl – You fucking racist ass fuck! This is a prime example of how the White Race is wicked. Racism and will not be ended in this country until the Whites and Jews are exterminated.
