Death Row Public Auction Set for January 25th
The U.S. Bankruptcy court has approved the go-ahead for a public auction on the assets of powerhouse 90s label Death Row Records.
Last year, numerous parties battled over ownership of the label after several sale closings were reneged on.
Those interested in attending the auction are required to pay a $200 registration fee that is refundable if an item is not purchased.
Some of the items for sale include the real life Death Row electric chair, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre's Source awards, framed platinum and gold records, Tupac Shakur collectables, promotional items, and over 300,000 originally packaged CDs.
Bids for this auction must be done in person, and accepted payment methods are 25% cash, cashier's checks, and credit cards.
Additionally, a 13% buyer's premium will be added to all sales. The public auction takes place Sunday January 25 at 1930 W. Malvern Avenue in Fullerton, California.
Founded in 1991, Death Row at its peak boasted a one-time lineup of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, Tha Dogg Pound, and the Lady of Rage.
It is estimated the label grossed $750 million in revenue and sold close to 50 million albums worldwide before owner Marion "Suge" Knight filed bankruptcy in 2005.
