Death Row Records celebrates thirty-year history by launching "The Death Row Experience," a virtual museum tour.
Regardless of how things might have concluded for the once-mighty label, Death Row Records will forever remain one of hip-hop's most iconic musical dynasties. Having spawned classic albums like Dr. Dre's The Chronic, 2Pac's All Eyez On Me, The Lady Of Rage's Necessary Roughness, Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle, and Tha Dogg Pound's Dogg Food, their output will forever remain a beloved and revisited chapter of rap history.
As such, the label has officially launched a virtual museum tour titled The Death Row Experience, available to check out right here. In addition to the virtual tour, a specially curated soundtrack lined with hits from the label's repertoire provides the soundtrack. Visually, the Experience was brought together by Flux88 Studios and TillaVision, who incorporated thirty easter eggs for fans to unpack in honor of the label's 30-year history.
