    rap labels don't know how to promote r&b artists.

    Would they have had room for R&B releases? This was the 1990s. Sublabels like this only put out 1 or 2 albums a year. Death Row had a gang of artists. They were never going to all release albums. If things hadn't fallen apart, Tha Dogg Pound, 2Pac, Dr. Dre, Kurupt, Daz, Outlawz, Rage and at least 3 compilations were on the way. I think only Nate Dogg would have seen a release.

    It didn't come out on an official album, just an unreleased song that was floating and WideAwake/Death Row ended up releasing her album a few years ago

    Here go the self titled track from the album :ohlawd:
