Looking to get your hands on a Suge Knight cigar box, a painting of Nate Dogg with real bullet holes, or a real electric chair with a custom “Death Row Records” inscription? Well as of today, it’s too late; U.S. Bankruptcy Court auctioned off most of the Death Row Records possessions they had confiscated.
LA Weekly reports a large tattooed man named Dale made off with the most prized items at today’s auction, including the aforementioned electric chair and Nate Dogg painting. However, another person managed to buy 17,000 copies of Snoop Dogg’s Tha Doggfather album at 4 cents a piece and someone also bought Snoop Dogg’s 1994 MTV Moon Man award (pictured above, via Brandon Perkins).
As we previously reported, Suge Knight, née Marion Knight, was forced to auction off the label’s recording catalog a while back, but many potential buyers were backing out of the deal out of fear of Knight’s reputation for making physical threats and ignoring court rulings. Wide Awake Entertainment bought the label this month for $18 million.
