BREAKING: Snoop Dogg and Interscope Part Ways
As of press time, no details were available on the split
Founded by Jimmy Iovine in 1990, Snoop Dogg immediately became one of the major players at the label through his affiliation with Death Row Records. The first major release from the pairing was The Chronic from Dr. Dre, whose lead single, the Snoop Dogg assisted Aint Nothin But A G Thang helped propel the album to multiplatinum status.
Snoop Doggs own debut album, 1993s Doggystyle followed in The Chronics footsteps and was certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA.
In 1998, Snoop Dogg parted ways with Death Row/Interscope and Snoop spent the ensuing years with Master Ps No Limit Records and later hit the independent circuit, releasing mix tapes and albums with long time collaborators, Tha Dogg Pound.
The new millennium saw the Dogg return to Interscope under Geffen Records where he released three albums.
There is no word on what Snoops next move will be, but reliable sources say the split will lead to bigger and better things for the Dogg Father.
