The cover looks like the "U Better Recognize/Come When I Call" single

The cover sucks, but then again this is the same company that released Down & Dirty.

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.

Oh shit. Only 2 brandnew "old" cuts? Thats so disappointing. Hopefully the album is not only worth a DL.  :-\

it seems that the label dont understand that people dont wanna hear new shit from the old inmates.
is it so difficult to accept that we just wanna hear the legendary classics death row sound from the good old days?

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.

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.

Fuck WIDE Awake...you get me hyped up everytime a new release surfaces then my bubble is burst before its even released. Just give the fans what they want.

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.

^i second that, i was excited when i heard that they plan to release it, than it was said that it will be half death row half new stuff, okay i thought 7-8 death row classic and hell yeah i buy this. as i heard the latest news that only 2 "new" row tracks will be featured i thought this would be an april fools joke but we have december and Wideawake did it again.

  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.

Well if they dont wanna release a cd full of good old shit then do it like that:

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.
