Death Row Sold to Hasbro
Famed record label "Death Row" that represented artists such as Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Tupac, has been sold to toymaker "Hasbro" in a 4million dollar deal.
Hasbro, well known for the iconic Mr. Potato Head, My Little Pony, and Power Rangers series, has now officially bought out Entertainment One, which is the owner of Death Row Records. Death Row Records is the label that helped launch Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, and has now become the music industry enterprise of Mrs. Potato Head.
The worldwide toymaker announced the $4 billion deal Thursday to buy British company Entertainment One, which produces animated kids shows such as “Peppa Pig” and “PJ Masks” but also owns the rap label. Hasbro has said the company was looking to expand “family brands” and television production with the purchase.
