Holy shit I thought this was a joke.. but it's actually real?? Wow what a waste of time. These guys are completely clueless.
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

They should re-release Doggystyle with "G'z Up, Hoes Down" back in the tracklist as Death Row now has it cleared for release.

People on here don't understand how business works. Wide awake could put out a cd with only 1 or 2 new unheard tracks on it and people will buy it. They're gonna be exploiting that right as long as they have ownership of the catalogue.

"dont understand how business works"
and im sure that u do?
just because nostalgic cd-purists n collectors just like yourself decides to buy a physical compact disc cuz of  2 or 3 new tracks, doesnt mean the opposition will do the same.
rest of us will downlaod it

People who download music without paying, will do that regardless.


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.

wolf tickets  (Produced by Sam Sneed)
after 3 (Produced by Daz)
3 wishes (Produced by DJ Quik)

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
