    Death Row had hip hop and R&B on lock.

    Yup. Jewell was even featured on the B.A. skit on nikkaz4Life, the 1 broad who calls in and says "since Ice Cube is sucking so much New York dikk, can he come eat some of this Chicago p*ssy"
    I think Jewell could've made it if she would've had the songs. Her voice had way too much personality to not have made it and she has a distinctive voice.
    She just needed the songs.

    They just ran out of time. People forget the record cycle was completely different then, especially when everything you'v dropped has gone multi-platinum. You let smashes ride out then similar to how Bruno has done 24K Magic.

    Pac coming to Death Row was huge, but one of the side effects was it pushed back the release schedule. Add that with Snoop being on trial for murder.

    1997 would have been the year for Death Row R&B and they were gearing up for it with stuff like Makaveli' s "Toss It Up," Nate's "Never Leave Me Alone" and Danny Boy "Slip-N-Slide."

    Danny Boy's unreleased album that finally came out in 2010 was fie.


    They had the group Sixx Feet Deep too. The 1996 Death Row Christmas album was basically the Death Row R&B showcase album.


    Pac said in an interview that he loved this song

    Yup. And everyone on that label from Suge and his goons on down to the artists all grew up on it.
