Death Row Records Signs (Another) Mobile Deal

Death Row Records has signed a deal with Koch Records and Hudson Entertainment to publish mobile content based on Death Row artists, which include luminaries such as Tupac Shakur, Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg. The content mentioned includes master ringtones and ringback tones, although there’s a lot more that can be done with it. I’m pretty sure this deal is only for North America — Death Row signed distribution agreements in Europe with Buongiorno and in Sth Africa with Teljoy 18 months ago. Back then US distribution was promised, and here it is… I have no idea why the US agreement is so much later, but it may have the same source as Death Row’s bankruptcy, with a judge saying “there is no one at the helm”.
