This guy aint no crip, and I'm 100% sure on that because he doesn't type like a crip, I know crips, and that fool is not a crip.

187um was released on the Dre Day single so they owned the rights to that track


but the Deep Cover "tongihts the night i get in some shit" is only on the Deep Cover cd or the Death row Europe release which sells in the states for like a few bucks more than a regular cd  (say a regular CD is 14 bucks, it sells for 17 or 18)

i'm not so sure of that; if they want people to buy their releases, starting off with a lie would be a bad move.

i'm not saying it won't happen, it's just that i'm not sure if the company is that stupid

I don't think that will happen either, unless Wideawake is actually unaware that these tracks have been released before.  I think they're up on their Row knowledge to know that both of those tracks have already been released in various forms, on other releases (Including the recent "15 Years On Death Row" compilation).  I think more than likely we'll get at least two actual unreleased tracks from that era (keep that in mind too-she said "at least two" previously unreleased tracks).  I'm guessing "Mr. Officer," "Rat-ta-Tat-Tat (OG)," and/or "Ho Hopper."  But time will tell.

Does Dre need to get paid? i think he's ok for cash...

I certainly think that if they can get past Dre's protective shield of Yes-men that Dre would be happier now that its not really the original Death Row or Suge putting it out or profitting from it.




I honestly don't think either of them (Snoop or Dre) would object to old unreleased stuff being released purely on principal. My guess is any objections are going to come more in the way of release logistics and potentially threatening sales on their current albums. Like Interscope wouldn't want WideAwake dropping a Chronic re-issue on the same month as Detox or something like that.

Snoop and co seems to get motivated by listening to their old stuff so maybe they're all for it.

I don't think so either.  I think their main issue in the past was Suge making money off of them.  The situation now is different, and it would be an opportunity for them to make some more money off their old unreleased work.  I realize they don't need the money, but it's money that I bet they wouldn't turn down.  I think things will work out okay in this instance.
 

kuruptDPG

it seems like they re-release all the albums and will add in extra traks/videos, that isnt so bad, least we will be getting new music out of it.

cant wait to hear the dr.dre/snoop/tha dogg pound material, lets just hope they cooperate with wideawake so that they can put it out.

  • Detox is the biggest marketing deception on Earth
Email them with your concerns and encourage them not to alter the original product created by the artists and the producers:  info@wideawakehc.com

I don't know if it'll do much but what's the worst that'll happen.

Make sure your grammar and spelling is correct so they take it serious.

Good post.  The only they'll treat the music seriously is if they sense that we are as well.  That means supporting the releases financially and being mature about understanding how the business works.  If the re-release of The Chronic flops and we all just illegally download the two unreleased songs, we won't hear any of the other stuff.  There seems to be a real cause and effect this time.
"Detox" is a myth -- Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, Area 51, Iraq having WMD, Detox...you get it now?  It was invented by the Aftermath marketing department to maintain the fans' attention.  Notice how everytime a new Aftermath album is ready to come out, they always mention Detox is next up?  Because they are using the invention of "Detox" as a way to market other albums.  The sooner you realize that Detox is NOT REAL, the sooner you'll feel liberated.  Oh yeah, f.u. Aftermath for fooling us fans.

looks promising, I wonder if they got that LBC crew album?

LBC Crew in CD quality > 2pac originals in CDQ

Just imo.  I pray they have the masters and Snoop was just b.s.ing about Style trashing them.

I guess it's all opinion... I mean, Pac was dope, but he's not the beginning and ending of all music for me. I haven't bumped a Pac album in ages believe it or not.

Don Seer

indeed fuck 2pac.

anyways the lbc crew version of out the moon was the original, without pac.


btw if you got this far the pac comment in the first line was a test.. if it riled you.. you need to get off his dick.
the second biggest thing thats ruined pacs legacy after the dodgy remix albums are his fan boys
