Hasbro Toy Company owns Death Row Records.
Hasbro, the company that owns classic toys and games such as Mr. Potato Head, Monopoly, Furbies, My Little Pony, and more is now the owner of Death Row Records. The toy and board game company acquired the infamous West Coast record label’s discography with the $4 billion purchase of Entertainment One.
7 years after Death Row filed for bankruptcy, eOne became the parent company of Death Row Records in 2013 when they bought the label’s entire catalog for about $280 million. The catalog that consisted of records from Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tupac, and many more.
“The acquisition of eOne adds beloved story-led global family brands that deliver strong operating returns to Hasbro’s portfolio and provides a pipeline of new brand creation driven by family-oriented storytelling,” Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said in a statement celebrating the purchase.
