Suge Knight’s legendary hip-hop label, Death Row Records, was auctioned and sold on Wednesday for $24 million.
Global Music Group’s president Susan Berg paid for the label, putting her in control of all the recordings by Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, and Dr. Dre during their time with the label. Her purchase also includes an additional 20 unreleased Tupac tracks.
Considered one of the most infamous labels from the mid-90’s, former owner Suge Knight was forced by a bankruptcy court judge to auction all assets to the highest bidder.
The troubles began in 2005 when Knight was ordered to pay $107 million to former partner Lydia Harris who accused him of owing her profits after she was forced out of the label. This caused Suge to file for bankruptcy in April 2006 when he filed for federal bankruptcy.
