The REVOLT Summit brought some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry to Los Angeles this past weekend. Filled with multiple panels, “The Making of TDE” installment brought Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, President Terrence “Punch” Henderson to share the story of the label, with Snoop Dogg moderating it.
During the discussion, Snoop Dogg reportedly referred to TDE as the better version of Death Row Records. This is according to a tweet sent out by Punch after the event. Punch said he was “humbled” by the compliment, especially coming from Snoop himself.
Comparisons between the two labels have existed since the beginning of TDE, considering the success for both labels is there. Snoop was initially reluctant to call TDE the new Death Row, saying that, “Death Row did it with a gangster approach,” while TDE rappers “represent hip-hop and they don’t represent negativity and violence.”
Snoop Dogg sat on stage in a room full of ppl and said we (TDE) are a better version of Death Row Records. Humbled. 🙏🏽
