Koch Attempting to Buy Death Row

Koch and another company in a bidding war to purchase Death Row Records.

The fate of Death Row Records hangs in the balance as Koch Records positions itself to buy the West Coast rap label.

The New York Post reports that Koch is one of two companies who stand the best chance of purchasing Death Row.

The other company, Evergreen Copyrights, made its presence known in May by purchasing the writer’s share of Death Row rapper Tupac Shakur’s music catalog.

Although the music publisher and Koch are in the running to obtain Death Row, two sources involved in the process told The Post that the sale of the label remains stalled in light of outstanding claims from producer Dr. Dre and Afeni Shakur.

Death Row controls the rights to roughly 10,000 master tracks.
