    K. Michelle Is Releasing New Music on Death Row Records

    K. Michelle Is Releasing New Music on Death Row Records

    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.

     

     

     Earlier this year, we unveiled our official KingIce x Death Row Records collaboration utilizing the iconic Death Row Records logo.

    Bow Wow made a recent appearance on Real 92.3 LA’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood, where he opened up about his mental health, fame, and more. In his interview, which was also recorded on video, the rapper was spotted in the gold King Ice x Death Row chain! The 14K Gold Iced out necklace is an exclusive release and official collaboration with Death Row Records.

    Bow Wow takes the time to announce his forthcoming album titled, “EDICIUS,” which is “suicide” spelled backward. He reveals the inspiration for the title in a Tweet:

    Snoop Dogg Got Matthew McConaughey High?

    Good friends, Snoop Dogg and Matthew McConaughey, recently sat with Jimmy Kimmel to discuss their new movie, “The Beach Bum.” The “destined friendship” between these two Hollywood stars is quite an interesting one. The two shared how neither of them remember the exact moment they met, the first time they were on the same set together, and more. Snoop even remembers the time he found a table of fake joints filled with oregano for a scene they were about to shoot. And how Snoop secretly swapped the “prop weed” with his own stash - which apparently got McConaughey really lifted.

    I didn’t say another word of English, really for, the rest of the night.” As for Snoop, he apparently “rapped for 13 hours straight!

    Snoop Dogg has been holding down the throne for the West Coast for quite some time now. It was only fitting we designed this “The Crowned King” Necklace made with handset stones, and a 2.5mm 26” stainless steel Franco chain.

    We also can’t forget the pivotal role Snoop played for Death Row Records, early on in his career. The recent collaboration between King Ice and Death Row Records has resulted in the iconic label’s logo being revived into a .925 Sterling Silver with 14K gold plating and grade AAA CZ stones neck piece.

    2 of America's Most Wanted Chains: Death Row x King Ice

    2 of America's Most Wanted Chains: Death Row x King Ice

    For over 14 years, King Ice has been producing wearable art, inspired by culture and has designed an insurmountable amount of highly demanded, unique street wear jewelry. One of the most prominent and anticipated collaborations has been with Death Row Records.

    Death Row Records has been one of the most significant labels in music history and West Coast hip-hop. Since the initial start of Death Row in 1991 by Marion “Suge” Hugh Knight Jr. and Michael “Harry O” Harris, the effect has been monumental. Some of the label’s artists included the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and 2Pac Shakur.

    Though many came from turbulent backgrounds, nothing was going to stop them from succeeding. By 1994, the label had generated $300 million in sales. The label produced numerous hip-hop albums that are considered classics to this day.

    Dre’s “The Chronic” (1992) was certified triple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Snoop’s “Doggystyle” (1992) was certified quadruple-platinum and Pac’s “All Eyez On Me” (1996) went on to be certified diamond by the RIAA.

    The artists weren’t the only members to succeed from their trials and tribulations. Harris, a reputable blood gang member from the Bounty Hunters set in the 70s and 80s, was a drug dealer in the streets of South-Central LA. Being street smart and book smart helped Harris become a successful entrepreneur and stray away from the gang life. He had an abundant amount of businesses like hair salons, limousine companies, and numerous real estate investments.

    Death Row Records’ has made a staple in hip-hop. Rapper The Game from Compton dedicated an entire song to this prominent chain called “Death Row Chain” from his “Streets of Compton” (2016) album, noting the significance of what this chain really means.

    Fast forward to 2019, almost two decades after the birth of Death Row Records, the Death Row x King Ice collaboration has made it possible for admirers to rock the label’s infamous logo chain like we’re back in the 90's.

    On Feb. 28, King Ice will be launching two new colorways and styles of the Death Row chains that will be added to the collection on www.KingIce.com.

    The first style is the Death Row Records logo necklace that will be available in a white gold or 14K gold finish. Each pendant will be iced out with clear VVS Diamond Simulates and will be paired with a 24”, 8mm Cuban Chain.

    The second style will be the same Death Row Record label logo necklace in a white gold and 14K gold finish but will have a more solid look to it without any stones. These will also be accompanied with a 24”, 8mm stainless steel Cuban Chain.

    Each piece will run for $120. For customers with a bigger bag, the $8,000 Solid 14K Gold and Diamond Death Row Logo Necklace and the 14K Solid Gold Death Row Logo Necklace for $5,500 are available for purchase, as seen on Snoop Dogg and The Game most recently.
