This marks the first time the soundtrack will be available on vinyl with its complete 21-song track listing as all previous LP vinyl releases have only contained 18 tracks. With a 2xLP gatefold, this dynamic package holds vinyl in a special variant – yellow with orange and red splatter.

Upon its initial release, Above The Rim (The Soundtrack) sold over 2 million copies and held the #1 spot on the Billboard R&B Albums chart for 10 consecutive weeks. The soundtrack is loaded with songs from epic artists including Tha Dogg Pound featuring Nate Dogg and Snoop Doggy Dogg, Dr. Dre, Warren G, DJ Quik and Al B.

Sure! Additionally, this special 30th Anniversary edition will now include tracks from 2Pac “Pain” (feat. Stretch), Lord G “Mi Monie Rite!” and 2Pac “Loyal To The Game” (feat. Treach & Riddler).

With its mix of undeniable R&B classics and some of the best hip-hop tracks ever created, this is an evergreen collection of songs on vinyl that epitomizes mid-90’s West Coast culture. 

Since the March 2023 inception of the Death Row Records and gamma. partnership, 25 albums and 400 songs have been re-released to all DSPs globally. Physical products, with the goal of delivering the best fan editions possible, have included the Snoop Dogg Doggystyle 30th Anniversary LP and new CD edition, which included a fold out double-sided poster featuring a Doggystyle cartoon and an image of Snoop, as well as Snoop Dogg Doggystyle: The 4/20 Vinyl Box Set, a limited, numbered collection that featured archival new packaging from the album’s original artist Joe Cool that sold out instantaneously.

On deck is the 4/20 release of Murder Was The Case (The Soundtrack) 30th Anniversary Edition LP which will be an official, exclusive release for independent retailers in celebration of Record Store Day 2024.
