I may have some of those tracks in better quality than the release.

You think this will be CDQ?

lol, it's pathethic even asking such a question on an official release... Until they retore confidence and don't get people asking those questions, they shouldn't be realising new material because no one's going to buy it

They should've left the logo alone... the man throwing up the W looks silly.

I guess I'll pick this up.  But while I understand they likely called it 20 to Life since it's been around that many years since Death Row first started dropping albums, it just sounds dumb (since it's usually 25 to Life being that prison term that they were likely referring to). But whatever, cool to see them releasing stuff by other Death Row artists not uber popular.

If they're gonna re-release tracks they've already dropped, they could at least grab some of those dope songs from Snoop's Lost Sessions and master them properly. This is another one of those releases were everything just seems so goddamn random. With all the space on a CD, they are only giving us 12 tracks and 5 of them are new? It would be one thing if they took some of the better songs from Lost Sessions, LBC Crew, and Ultimate Death Row Box Set properly mastered them and mixed them in with some unreleased goodies but this? It's like that Against The Grain re-release with a new title and a weird track order. What is the point?

Some of you guys always find something to bitch about. The great thing about WA was that they'd release unheard songs. Now that they are releasing some of it, you still complain.

I look forward to the new tracks and hopefully that CPO track is CDQ, but if it ain't, it ain't. If I see the cd in a store somewhere (or online), I might even pick it up as this will become a rarity. :)

While this is true, they still make bizarre decisions that make you question what theyre doing.

Whats the point of songs like 6 shooter and this type of flow being on this? They already released them.

no prob if they put 1 or 2 already released songs on this, maybe alternate versions or better quality. But more than half of the album is well know and the majority was released through them (aint got no time, 6 shooter, type of flow, sticky situations...) and not on bootlegs! I think 12 songs on a cd is not enough at all, the run time will be around 50 minutes minus the double and triple released tracks we`ll get 20 minutes of new music

That CPO track had been out on cd - Uninvited Guest OST for 10 years in CQD.

In all fairness, while wideawake has made a few dumb moves, I'm sure that there's a lot going on behind the scenes. Obviously Dre isn't on board yet, Amaru Records is likely not 100% behind a Pac release (which should've come out already), and maybe the other better known former Death Row artists want too much money to sign off on those releases.

There's a simple solution to that, put all the good shit out and give all of the scraps to tha original artists and producers (and writers).  Fuck it, cash out with a bang.  If an artists or producer has a shitty/filler song then they're entitled to keep that song.  I betchu that they'll end up handing over alot of songs and beats too.    



Keep all of the good shit and hand over the other shit.  Everybody gets broke off a piece of their own and Everybody's conscience.  Kurupt and OFTB and all of them other guys shouldn't be so focused on tha past anyway.  It's good to reminise but get over it.  Nobody is really making any money here, it's all pipe dreams.  The music is far from worthless or deniable [*no ass kissin*] but economically nobody is going to win.  WideAwake isn't hardly going to get all that they said accomplished, they don't have any real investors (i believe), becuz if they did then most of the projects that have already been released wouldn't have come out the way they have and we woulda atleast have had a trailer to a movie right now or a release!


What they should've did was reach out to people like Slim and Birdman or Master P and people with pull in tha community and make some solid connections and broke people off and got put on with other moves to make money.  Everybody loves Death Row that makes 10 figures or better like Kanye West and The Neptunes and Timbaland.  They shouldn't have had a problem finding people to invest/creditor and provide proper creative input (if wanted) for the projects.  


*I kinda think WideAwake's moves look a little suspect.  A few of their actions have been funny

Dr. Dre and Amaru are not keeping them from putting out polished albums with decent tracklists. They are charging anywhere from $12-$18 for these releases and they are not even putting the right mindstate into organizing them. If they're gonna dip into songs they already put out, they should think about the best material from a selling point. Maybe a properly-mixed "Doggystyle" or the "Natural Born Killaz" Sam Sneed mix at the right play speed. Hell, you could probably grab any of those MP3 bonus tracks off the Chronic Re-Lit, something off Lost Sessions, the new Kurupt tracks from Down N Dirty, or choice cuts from Crooked I, Danny Boy, Sam Sneed, and OFTB's albums if they just want to recycle. LBC Crew "Six Shooter" is a good song but if it's just the same version we got already, I don't see the point, especially when it's not something that is going to sell to a wider audience. Wideawake is in the music-selling business and it's just odd that with that deep a catalog, they would put out a project like this. Hell, if you look back at those two "15 Years" Death Row project compilations that came out, those were actually well-organized. Nothing unreleased that I recall but a lot of rare B-sides and stuff of the sort.

Re-release the entire back catalouge with a release each month with 1/2 previously unreleased bonus songs from that time period/recording sessions:

May 2012 - Doggystyle (with 1 bonus song)
June 2012 - Above The Rim (with 2 Bonus songs)
July 2012 - Murder was the case (with 2 bonus songs)
August 2012 - Dogg Food (with 1 bonus song)

so on, and so on, until they got up to Chronic 2000.. Take some of the money from these bankable, and proftiable albums that still sell today, and use it to 1) pay back investors, and 2) invest in the future, and put money into making any "New" future releases sound nice, and have better promotion and artist backing

This shitting out bootleg-quality material while the heads are turned away does nothing for the label

Even more reason for Wideawake to limit the flow of 'unheard' tracks being released, like they are.

For those who don't live out their lives online, this cd will be in stores promoting the brand...and moving units. And collectors and die hard fans worldwide will still get it from eShops etc. And Wideawake still got tracks for days sat in the vault.

im actually surprised with this release, with john pain running things we should be thankful we even get this. if john pain chose the songs above it was pure luck or a fuck up, cause that seems to be the only way we get anything good...example natural born killas w/ sam sneed.

i disagree,
people dont buy cd's anymore, therefore limiting the diversity of new & exclusive music, will only slow down possible sales for new product

a conventional music-customer wold buy this project if it was all new tracks or somethin more fancier, but since the release is an obvious rip-off, only nostaglic cd-purists like urself would buy it (the people who spend money on a release  if there is only one *new* song on it)

it might postpone the catalogue, n give WideAwake somethin more to relaese routinely,, but i dont think its a succesful move thru a revenue-perspective

People not buying CDs is false. I bought over 200 CDs last year alone. My collection is over 4,000 albums.

Artists across a variety of genres are going platinum. And the majority of those sales are physical, not digital.

Well your argument fails first and foremost because people do buy CDs. Especially as Wideawake is a company that specialises in CDs , special/limited editions, DVDs etc etc as their primary product.

no, they dont
collectors buy "cds and vinyl" not "people"
digital outlets and streaming sites (like Spotify) and illegal mp3's are the public domain sources for new
music today, not compact discs (its different depending on which country tho)

WideAwake aims at collectors wit their product, n since the overall content n quality
of the product isnt up to par wit the networth, i dont see any revenue from
a business-standpoint wit their releases. thats how i look at it

2 or 3 new tracks in a lousy compact disc format wit a cheap paper-inlay isn't worth 20$,
not even for a collector, thats why it wont sell n become a huge success IMO

Your argument is a nonsense.

Cd sales aren't made up of 'collectors' only. Cd sales are still a major part of the industry.

Just because u don't buy CDs doesn't mean people aren't out buying CDs 24/7 or off Amazon etc. :D

the revenue isnt in cd-sales, so  cd-sales are not a huge factor in the industry from a business standpoint, no

collectors and general fanbases buy cd's, not the conventional music-listener.
the compact disc isnt a source for new music today,, the internet is

ive been thru that argument before..
comparing statistics of CD-sales and digital sales doesnt work at all

of course, Cd sales more in comparison wit digital sales, still doesnt prove anythin.. cuz most of teh music listeners download everythin for free
the percentage shows the small number of actual digital sales, and doesnt say antyhin about teh illegal downloads

those numbers make it look like cd-sales are a dominant force, when its not at all in reality

how can compact discs sell (& remain as an important factor as a source for music in the industry, like u said) when downloads are eatin off the profits?

Not interested. I hope people from WideAwake are readin' DubCC and they understand that they're fuckin up.
I think that the album sales of their Death Row releases tell them that.

It's funny because we used to clown on Death Row before with how bad their album sales were, though they eclipse the WIDEawake releases by a good margin... and those releases at least had some new stuff (i.e. Dead Man Walkin, Too Gangsta for Radio, Snoop Doggy Dogg Greatest Hits) or a decent mix of released songs and unreleased songs.

Someone else said Doggystyle with G'z Up Hoez Down would be nice, but it's going to take more than one extra song to get sales, especially when the fanbase that actually knows that song probably already has it in some form and likely won't drop another $12 just to have it.  They'd need to put more bonuses on that... the original Next Episode would definitely get my $12, I'd be at Best Buy at 10am right when they open to buy that.

or even if they cant re-release the Dre vocals they can easily use those other 2 songs and maybe Smoke On or something

Re-release the entire back catalouge with a release each month with 1/2 previously unreleased bonus songs from that time period/recording sessions:

May 2012 - Doggystyle (with 1 bonus song)
June 2012 - Above The Rim (with 2 Bonus songs)
July 2012 - Murder was the case (with 2 bonus songs)
August 2012 - Dogg Food (with 1 bonus song)

so on, and so on, until they got up to Chronic 2000.. Take some of the money from these bankable, and proftiable albums that still sell today, and use it to 1) pay back investors, and 2) invest in the future, and put money into making any "New" future releases sound nice, and have better promotion and artist backing

This shitting out bootleg-quality material while the heads are turned away does nothing for the label


I always thought that this would be a logical strategy for them that would keep average hip-hop fans and death row die-hards interested in their products while maximizing profits by milking their back catalog. But I guess that would make too much sense so WA choose to go a different route ::)

Not really. It's a catalog title. Putting out a remastered version of Doggystyle with the original tracklist would work in terms of making it the DEFINITIVE version to buy. You're now competing with the older titles and make them irrelevant in the sense that instead of buying a used copy with one less track or a brand new copy of an older re-issue, anyone looking to get the album for the first time or buy a replacement will go there. I mean, you could also put together a "Deluxe" edition with a bonus CD of remixes, instrumentals, and so forth but they don't need a shit load of unreleased tracks on Doggystyle. It's a classic how it is. There's a reason labels do these re-issues all the time.

last release they didnt fuck up was the ultimate death row collection...which was in 2009!  jesus they suck
Maybe from your perspective, they didn't "fuck up" on that one but to me, all they did was mix in a disc of greatest hits with two CD's worth of poorly-mixed unreleased stuff and even then, they had like one or two random old sons in there for no reason. The problem I had with releases like this, the Snoop one, and the LBC Crew was that even though, they had some amazing songs, the sound quality was lousy on so many of them. They included this rare mix of "Natural Born Killaz" with Sneed and they didn't even put it out with the correct playing speed.

Uhhhh no. Dre is a perfectionist concerned with his legacy. He doesn't need the money. If dre was all about the money he'd release all the music he has in the vault which would bank him a ton of money. You couldn't be more off base if you tried.

Yeah until about the time of the second OFTB release. After that it was you could throw money into a black hole and stood a better chance of getting anything than giving money to them.

That's the last thing I give a fuck about. The thing that never made me buy an FTP release is that the people behind it were 2Pac-psychos. I would never give my address to those people.

This cd is probably going to sell 10 copies so it's not like the royalties from this cd are gonna be lining their pockets. I wasn't too thrilled with FTP putting movie clips into the songs.

  In the case of Tha Realest, J-Flexx, and O.F.T.B., the artists were supposed to be getting money from those sales.  I have no idea how that worked out, in reality.  It was definitely a bootleg operation, so it wouldn't surprise me if FTP wasn't as much on the up and up with the artists who were involved, as they led people to believe.  But just in terms of the quality of the projects released, I have to give the advantage to FTP over WideAwake, and really, I wouldn't be surprised if most of FTPs projects have outsold WideAwake's.  And for that to be true of a bootleg company, it just shows how ridiculously bad WideAwake has been at putting these projects together.  I've supported most of them, but it's clear at this point that not only is the sound quality lacking, but they're no longer even taking the time to keep track of who's songs were who's.

they're still bullshittin tho.  i should know Lara has left (even tho u reminded me).  they're making Death Row Records completely irrelevant and obsolete.  i get wanting to move on but atleast do it in grace, this shit is just disrespectful.  The only two releases that haven't been bullshit is Jewell's album and Danny Boy's album and that's becuz it was mostly all original unheard material.  That 3 disk boxset shoulda just been a 1 disk unreleased compilation, why they think people wanna keep buying the same songs over and over again literally is something new to me lol.  I wanna say that "Damn Near Dead" was tite but alot of that was already released smh.


i also see they took the "keep it all original and untouched" request too literal.  clearly the general consensus was keep all of the original instrumentals and unheard verses and album work, not keep literally EVERYTHING the same like the un-mixed tracks and USED vocals.  Again, this is what happens when u take the Niggaz outta tha Nigga Shit.  John Payne should be ashamed, Suge should be ashamed.... i betchu that's the REAL reason why Dre, Pac's estate, Snoop, and Tha Dogg Pound haven't really given the "ok" to release what clearly (and blatantly) everybody wants.  this whole move was just a waste of time.  Yeah we got some cool shit here n there but what else?  


at the end of the day if I was Dre and all of them I wouldn't be so quick to give the "ok" to releasing my OLD shit either, they literally have no idea what they're doing.  Even tho the nostalgia of Death Row Records has died down slightly since before it still doesn't mean they should be doing what they're doing.  The only people who would be complaining on blogs/forums would most likely be the usual suspects on here.  I'm pretty sure if everything was in order then we woulda been had the "OG To BG (Original Version)" released and maybe another song or two from "The Chronic II..." sessions as well, as well as other demos from "Doggystyle" and "Dogg Food" etc etc [money isn't everything and i'm pretty sure these niggaz fully understand that, especially on material that's heading towards a quarter century old in a few years.  Them niggaz can't be that petty, somebody was fucking up at WideAwake.  Just looked at the deal they worked out.


i'm very surprised that they haven't kept up with the times in terms of selling single tracks (i.e. I-Tunes).  i buy shit i can't find for free all of the time on i-Tunes, i just brought that "I Robbed My Homeboy" track by Jo Boy Fresh becuz that nigga's album is impossible to find for free.  And it was more than worth it too.  I'm about to go over the samples again and probably buy that Lil' Bow Wow track and maybe another 1 but that's it, there's literally no reason to buy the full set.  that's just not smart money

Agree with that.

The best initial start was the way the Chronic was released. They should have then done a Doggystyle re-release with additional songs too, and so on, and so on until they reached Too Gangsta 4 radio or an equivalent.. Generated income they needed to put out this new material of a high standard and full artist/producer backing on a mainstream level should have been a priority, and that usually happens with a catalog reissue WITH decent advertising. Respect artists wishes, and allow time to renegotiate and work out deals. So what if an artist says they don't want material released today. Tomorrow may be different.

Offering artists to buy, or to put on ITunes, all the lesser known material from unknown artists, or to put one of those unknowns on their website every few weeks to help keep people coming back to visit.. Better merchandise, and possibly even sell a specific number of deluxe Death Row pendants so Mufukka can finally get one to stop him going on about mine.

There was plenty that they could have done, but instead they chose to release tracks fans already have, and to release albums with missing information, and sloppy credits, botched titles, and all sorts of errors... It's nothing more than a professional bootleg company to me... Much like those Trapp 2Pac releases back in the day, or the "1 in 21" albums. They may be professionally pressed, but they are not official, legit, and of a high quality, something you'd expect from The Death Row brand

Not at all surprised to hear people voice their unhappiness toward WA.  There are plenty of creative and somewhat innovative ideas being thrown around by fans in terms of what FastAsleep could have potentially done to truly resurrect the label.  Mind you, even with the limitations/restrictions of not being able to release new Dre or Pac material, there is still plenty of opportunity to make something worthy of this label and actually make some return on the millions spent to purchase the label.

Let's be honest here, this label has become nothing more that a modern day K Tel records we used to see at Kmart years back.  Payne complains about material being bootlegged, he has the ringleader right under his nose and they actually have him on payroll if you can believe that!  I would never wish ill will toward anyone but seeing this label being run like a fly by night operation is indeed a travesty.  Look at what it has become; they reissue tracks that not only have been released on previous, official albums, but the quality is inferior.  They can't get their tracklisting right, they thank a guy that actually bootlegged their own material, and the cherry on the cake is that their releases aren't even in stores.  Seriously WA, either you guys forgot you are in the music business or a 10 year old is making the decisions down in Toronto!

At this rate WA should open a pizzeria and tell their customers they don't have pepperoni, green peppers, and cheese because this is precisely how they are doing business.  Then they have the audacity to be surprised when artists refuse to give their blessing to projects or allow their material to be released.  The more fans express themselves, the worse they seem to get.  Perhaps we should compile a list of their incompetence and send it to the higher ups at WA as I am convinced that no logical business person would allow this stupidity to go on.  It's like we're telling them there's an iceberg straight ahead but these guys continue going straight into it.  It's a damn shame what has become of this label; makes me ashamed to be Canadian!

Me and u both.  I brought "The Chronic (Re-Lit)" and "The Lost Sessions Vol. 1" (I bootlegged the 3 disk set becuz it didn't make sense to ME to buy it).  There's no real/legitament reason to buy their releases.  I remember when I brought "Re-Lit" and ppl were messaging me to leak "Smoke On" and I was like "naw" becuz I wanted WideAwake to prosper and release more unreleased material, now I'm just like fuck that shir and lookin for the 1st bootleg

I think "After 3" is the track Bow Wow talks about in the video from the Bow Wow thread that's floating around

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=R_oSIfhrwwY#t=176s

Supposedly this was a leftover from MWTC and was written by Kurupt

this is their wackest release 

yep, i thought sam sneed would be it but they finally made one that is worse. the 4 new tracks are average at most (to be nice) with the Bloody Mary one being in an insulting sound quality. The best track on the compilation might be the 6 Shooter alternate mix, i think enough is said.

a complete waste of time when you think that we were waiting for almost 6 months on it (since jewell in november '11)

i wonder how long WA can survive with useless releases like this one

right now i`m speechless

That and I don't think Wolf Tickets is even what the track is really called. In the court documents there was a track called City Of Shaft and that's said throughout the hook.

i told y'all i was gonna buy it.  i stand by my word.  



this song actually cranks tho... i'm a fan.... where's the album?  i remember back in the early days of Napster some snippet was floating around and all i could remember was i couldn't download the full thing and that Bow Wow didn't rap on it (atleast the version i had).... maybe it was a fake, idk....


i also remember an unreleased XZibit and Eminem track floating around that was the shit.  same situation as the Bow Wow track (only a snippet)... but tha beat was so fuckin hard tho

thanks!

luv this death row flava   8)

Do they have Twitter/Facebook? Does their website get regularly updated?

It may be an idea to include updates on the previous artists on the Death Row website too. What is Crooked I doing now? What is dre doing now. Their news site can be rehashed to include current Hip Hop news on those former artists to keep it active, and to keep people going onto it, as well as including a new song here or there.

The main problem though is "money". They don't have the funds to put out the 2Pac CD, and they don't have the funds to get the bigger artists on board

I know Don. It was a rhetorical question. Point is that they don't push and promote these hards enough. They need a dedicated web team, like anyone in the music business in 2012. Street teams. It's like The Chronic re-lit was decent in street team promo with posters, street graffiti, magazine ad's, and paying other top sites etc. but after that, it became quick flash videos on their own official site or youtube channel of the upcoming release, with nothing else and no one pushing it online

This kind of internet promotion isn't a 10 minute spare time hobby, it requires a 9-5 form of dicipline

I think we should buy these albums to support, however, Wideawake need to release their albums with consistent tracklistings. Don't mix 1992 snoop with 1996 Snoop. Just release his shiz in chronological order etc

Wideawake has to be taking a punch from not having any of these albums sell. If they would just listen to the fuckin fans and go through with there original plans I would've bought a bunch of those albums. But selling us a Crooked I album AFTER I leaked the bitch was just stingy. The Danny Boy album seemed like a good idea but the mixing ruins it. Step it up Wideawake.

Props my dude. After the preview I can say this is worth buying IMO for the few gems on it.
Just some stuff from a first spin..

Rage goes off on Untouchable :o

Wolf Tickets is horrible. :-X

After 3 is dope 8)

Fleetwood Mac is the full song (about 45 seconds longer than the previously released version)

Niggaz Pay Fo Pussy is different to the Snoop version. Sounds like they redid the beat for The Game Is To Be Sold, Not Told.

The alt mix/beat for 6 Shooter is really cool to hear. I never noticed they did something with Debbie Debs 'When I Hear Music' on this. The other version adds more sounds over the skeleton beat we have on 20 To Life.
