R&B songstress, K. Michelle, is set to release her new single on Death Row Records. The storied West Coast label, has taken her under their wing - even gifting her with an official hoodie, which she wore for a photo opp. “Guess who’s releasing a record on DEATHROW,” she wrote on Twitter. For Michelle, this marks a new chapter in her career as its been a ream of hers to release music through a label that once signed the legendary, Tupac Shakur.
“I used to wear my Tupac shirt my momma bought me and rap and sing! Do anything you want!”
If you recall, K. Michelle was previously signed to Atlantic Records; releasing four albums, with her recent being 2017’s “Kimberly: The People I Used to Know.” But for some time now, the label has removed her from the artist roster on their website.
A little about Death Row, if you’ve been out of the loop since the early 1990’s (insert eyeball here), the label was founded in 1991 by Suge Knight, Dr. Dre and the D.O.C. It became the home for Hip Hop royalty including Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and Nate Dogg.
