History

Beginnings

The record label was founded by Snoop Dogg At the end of his self-described "servitude" at Master P's No Limit Records. The idea of an independent record label came up when Snoop left Death Row earlier than finishing his second album Tha Doggfather. Although completing it by himself and producing the tracks alone, the vision of his own label remained unrealised. Much advertising was done by Snoop in interviews, as well as wearing "Dogghouse-branded" leather jackets and jewelry made in the shape of the Doggystyle Records logo. Finally it was independently founded in late 1999/early 2000. It started as a place to house many artists that had ties with Snoop in the past but were not currently signed to a label, as well as some newcomers. However, Snoop only used the label for his own releases, and as a result many artists left. For a time, though, several former Death Row artists who collaborated with Snoop in the early '90s were signed to the label. Its main purpose is still to endorse all copyrights for the recorded song from then on.

Originally it was distributed through Universal Music Group, the main shareholder of Vivendi Universal SA that embraced MCA record label the one to release Doggystyle Records as its sub-agency with Snoop being the executive in August 2001. After this in October 2005 Snoop has formed a partnership with Koch Records in preparation for the release of Snoop Dogg Presents Welcome to tha Chuuch - Da Album, as well as other albums.
