Title: Sam Sneed Debut LP From Dr. Dre Protege STREET SCHOLARS (Album Cover)
Post by: EnzoUK on November 29, 2010, 08:04:55 AM

One of the more anticipated albums of the 1990s was Street Scholars by Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania producer/emcee Sam Sneed. As a Death Row Records artist, Sneed released 1994 hit single "U Betta Recognize" featuring Dr. Dre from the Murder Was The Case soundtrack. However, after co-production and writing credits on label hits between 1994 and 1996, Sneed's album has remained shelved.

Death Row Records, now owned by Toronto, Canada's WIDE Awake Entertainment, announced that is going to change. In the last two years, the new regime at the label founded by Dr. Dre, Marion "Suge" Knight and attorney David Kenner in 1991 has released shelved material from Snoop Dogg, Danny Boy and Kurupt. Sneed's Street Scholars, according to E1 Enterainment, Death Row's present distributor, will be released on January 25, 2011.

Prior to working with Dr. Dre in 1994, Sneed was known as a member of PMD's Hit Squad, producing for Long Island, New York emcee K-Solo (who would also later sign with Death Row). In addition to "U Better Recognize," Sneed worked alongside Dr. Dre on hits such as "Natural Born Killaz" and "California Love." After Dr. Dre left the label he co-founded in 1996, Sneed soon followed after a fight with Suge Knight and Tupac Shakur that has been profiled in several books, most notably Ronin Ro's Have Gun Will Travel.

In the years since Death Row, after surviving a reported brain tumor, Sam Sneed has produced for Busta Rhymes, Capone-N-Noreaga, Beanie Sigel and former Posion Clan emcee JT Money.

Street Scholars is believed to feature Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Dayton, Ohio emcee J-Flexx. (November 20)

After nearly 14 years, the long-awaited Death Row Records album by one-time Dr. Dre protégé Sam Sneed is finally being released. WIDEawake Entertainment Group Inc., the company who purchased the Death Row Records catalog, is releasing Sneed’s Street Schoalrs project on January 25th, 2011 through E1 Entertainment.

Dubcnn was just given the album artowrk, created by Urbanista Graphix, as well as a few additional bits of info about the upcoming release.

Sam Sneed became well-known for his catchphrase “My name is Sam Sneed, you better recognize!", which originally appeared in the song “Pump, Pump” off the Snoop Doggy Dogg debut album, Doggystyle. He also appeared in the Death Row movie, Murder Was the Case, which also spawned Sam Sneed’s “U Better Recognize” single, featuring Dr. Dre, included in the movie’s soundtrack. The soundtrack single peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart, #18 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart and #48 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.

Sam Sneed also co-produced “Keep Their Heads Ringin'” and “Natural Born Killaz” with Dr. Dre. The original, alternate version "Natural Born Killaz" with Sam Sneed rapping a verse was released on the Ultimate Death Row Collection on November 24, 2009.

Following his time on Death Row, after surviving a reported brain tumor, Sam Sneed has produced for Jay-Z (“Anything”), G-Unit (“I Smell Pussy”), Scarface (”Fuck’n With Face”), and others like Capne-N-Noreaga, Beanie Sigel and former Posion Clan emcee JT Money.

Street Scholars will feature "U Better Recognize", "Lady Heroine", "Goin’ Hollywood", "Drug Related", as well as 10 brand-new tracks that Sam Sneed has recorded for the project. The project is set to feature Dr. Dre, Nu Starz Entertainment (Sneed's new group of talent), J. Flexx and others.

Yeah, but I think everybody saw that coming. What I don't understand is why they are going with the "Street Scholars" title if this ain't the real "Street Scholars" album, lol. The cover is really weak and it looks like done in 5 minutes by an amateur using photoshop. Waiting for tracklist to drop cause I wonder how many tracks are gonna be on it if there's already 10 new cuts but I smell another FAIL from Wideasleep..

Of all (possible) WA releases I was most excited about the Sam Sneed album, but this is going to have 14 tracks I'm not particularly interested in. ::)

Even if this would be available for purchase outside of the US I wouldn't buy this.

They know that everybody who's slightly interested in paying money for their releases only care about the DR music and they still say this kind of stuff in a press release. Retards.

i wonder if a composite cover for the Original 'Street Scholars' release was ever devised, presenting that would stay true to the OG if that's really what the NEW Death-Row is trying to stick too.
I've been waiting for this since WideAwake bought the catalog, dogg!  can't wait! 8)

10 NEW track from Sneed isn't all that bad, but we still want that OG D-R shit!!

 Man, my anticipation for this album has now severely dropped.  Not so much because they're including new tracks, but because they're not including many old ones.  Those were the tracks that everyone has been waiting for years to hear.  Honestly, I don't know why they keep putting out these tepid releases.  The same thing that happened with the Danny Boy and Crooked I cds will inevitably happen here too. It will sell  a few hundred copies, at the very best.  It's a shame.  They need to find someone at that company that knows what they're doing.

Only 4 old DR tracks (which are likely to be in the same quality as they are floating on the web) :P, those 10 new songs better all be on some "I Smell Pussy" or "Anything" type shit.

exactly...they are only hurting themselves releasing weak half assed albums when they can EASILY release the original album format and sell way more than they would with all this fuckin mix and mash cds.....sigh...i always gave them the benefit of the doubt, but i finally realized its just fuckin hopeless....

can someone from wideawake come in here and explain the logic behind this decision?

Could of been something nice, if it contained 90's Deathrow polished G-Funk songs in the mould of 'Natural Born Killers', 'Better Recognize' etc...

Him and Dre had a cool chemistry in the lab, before Suge fucked it all up.

 It seems like a lot of people don't like the cover.  Personally, the cover doesn't bother me.  It's not great, but it's adequate. And judging by this pic you posted of the old single, I can at least see why they went with that cover.  It's the lack of old tracks that's really disappointing.

Don't really have a problem with the cover, and I don't have a problem with Sneed putting out new tracks (which has been extremely overdue BTW). But I do have a problem with WideAwake not putting out a full album of the unreleased stuff. It's in the vaults, why not just do a double disc, one with 10 old DR tracks and one with the 10 new tracks?

WideAwake is a fraudulent company, they don't really exist outside of the realm of Death Row (they're virtually nobodies).  I think that they have this philosophy that if they listen to tha fans too too much it'll fuck shit up, and if they don't listen to tha fans at all then everything will be fine.  I mean I know running a business isn't as easy as it looks but really tho how hard is it to fuck up Death Row Records music?  I mean, just give the people whut thay want (by listening to tha forums and by just using plain old fuckin common sense).  It's not really a difficult task lol.  They shouldn't even have brought tha company if all we're going to be getting is half baked shit like we've been gettin (it's not even half baked in most cases so far).  With tha Danny Boy (and RnB) albums I could see why they released whut thay did but with everything else it's like "why" uknow. 



They should've just let Suge keep it or give all of the artist a chance to buy back their old material (i'm sure Dr. Dre would've been their biggest customer).  You've would've made ur money back (and probably a little more) and everybody could've gotten whut they wanted and been happy.  Tha way they've handled this whole operation has been sloppy at best and they really need 2 go back 2 tha drawing board if they slackin' like this.

It boggles my mind how WideAwake can continually insult the few fans they have left with their consistent fuck ups. Mixing and mastering has remained garbage despite the majority of us voicing our displeasure with it. They've released multiple albums with stuff that's already leaked. With the Sneed album they had the chance to make us supporters again and it appears that they are once again blowing it. I guess I shouldn't be surprised at this point. Sucks that Lara got ousted, she seemed to genuinely care, unlike whoever is running this circus now.

I once was optimistic and excited about WideAwake, and now I'm utterly pissed. I'm not gonna lose sleep over it, but I don't get how they can be so ignorant.

  Agreed.  Although the poor mixing I could almost chalk up to sheer incompetence.  Not saying there's an excuse for it.  But at least with that, it seems unintentional.  The track selection for these projects has to be intentional though.  And why they would continue to put together these projects with tracks that everyone already has, is beyond me.  I agree with your point about Lara Lavi too.  Of course we'll never know how things might have turned out if she were still there.  But at least with her, it seemed like she had some strategy in place for trying to make the company a success.  The people currently in charge seem to be just churning out project after project with very little thought behind any of it.

At least we`ll get BRAND NEW Sam Sneed material 4 tha `11, so its not like its a horrible/useless or undeserving release.  Im actually kinda happy about it, but it shouldnt be affiliated with tha whole DR/WA thing.  Its not like Sam fell off so Im sure it mite rock, we`ll have 2 see.  But as far as it being a ``death row`` release, they shouldnt even have done it like that.  Sam Sneed with Wiz Khalifa 4 tha warm up then Sam Sneed with tha whole Fly Society on tha beat and then this album about 2 comeout.

I know how the actual ARTIST feels means nothing to you guys, but don't you think, that as long as Sam is putting out what he wants, then that is fine? It is HIS project, and HE is in control of it, so let him release the album that HE wants. Seriously, this isn't like the Crooked I or Snoop releases, where the artist wasn't in control. The man has waited a long while to release and album, and I for one am happy for him. If you wanna fault him after the album comes out for wack tracks, go ahead. But first lets see what he puts out.

I'm posting this in 2 Sneed threads, just cuz I feel the attitude coming from some of yall is kinda wack.

1. CD with brand new sam sneed music
2. Data disc with videoclips, pictures, sneed interview and 7+ old tracks from the glory days.

pack it like the re-lit and i would buy that.

People really shouldn't complain when WideAwake are releasing songs that the vast majority of us have heard/have in our collections.  Don't forget that this is illegal (not trying to sound like a nerd or anything, but I doubt any of us have paid for these songs).

I for one would be happy to get a CD with tracks that I've already got in mp3 form (the 2Pac album, for example), because I like to have a physical copy of something that I can blast in my stereo.  Why should the company insist on releasing ONLY unheard songs, just because a grip of people have illegally downloaded them over the years? 

I can understand people's gripe with the new material though, since pretty much all of the people who will be buying this record want the OG songs and nothing else.  And any criticism towards mixing and mastering is justified in my opinion (judging by previous releases).

They wouldn't even have bought the DR catalog if there were no people who had illegally downloaded music.

i was saying the same thing when people were complaining about the crooked i cd having all leaked songs.  all of that material was unreleased.  its not their fault you're disappointed because you downloaded the bootleg.  i downloaded it too, but i didn't complain about Hood Star. I actually bought it.

back to the sam sneed project.  i was hoping Blueberries would make the cut.  even though its been available for years, it would've been nice to have a properly mixed and mastered copy. i know they've dropped the ball in the past when it comes to mixing in mastering, but people claim the Sam Sneed material was finished up and set to go in 95/96.

 I agree with what you're saying here, and I've supported most of Wideawake's releases (everything but their Kurupt album), but I would think from a business perspective, it would make more sense to release stuff that there's a demand for. And I just don't see them selling many albums that are mostly songs that were either previously available on other albums or have leaked onto the internet over the years.

we don't complain about unheard or unleaked songs, its about putting new songs on a cd that will have the name death row written on it. i brought crooked i even dough i had almost every track before - no problemo
