The legendary Death Row Records was recently auctioned off and development company WIDEawake purchased the label earlier this year. Reports now say that the company has signed a deal with the music publishing company EverGreen to release new music including unreleased records from Tupac Shakur.
To celebrate 2Pac‘s birthday in June of 2010, Death Row is expected to release a new album of never before heard music from the late rapper which will be distributed by E-1 (formally Koch) in the United States and EMI overseas. Another planned album will be a re-released version of Dr Dre‘s “The Chronic” called “Re-Lit” on September 1st which will feature four bonus tracks – all unreleased master from Death Row – plus a DVD with never before seen video footage of Dr. Dre and other artists.
