Priority_logo

Following the release last December of Snoop Dogg’s ‘Malice N Wonderland’, EMI’s Priority Records, the seminal rap label behind hip-hop legends including N.W.A., Ice Cube and Easy-E, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

To mark the milestone the label is releasing a series of commemorative albums throughout the year, starting on February 23 with ‘Snoop dogg Presents: The West Coast Blueprint’ which includes 16 tracks from the Priority vaults plus a new recording by Snoop of Ice Cube’s classic ‘Check Yo Self’.

“Priority was the flagship label for the west coast,” explains Snoop, who is now Creative Chairman of Priority. “Fans who might not have heard these records in a long time, I know they’re going to love hearing them again. And for the youngsters who’ve never heard them before, it’s an important education. See? Learning can be fun.”

Check out the new ‘shizzle reel’ video with Snoop explaining the project on Priority’s website www.priorityrecords.com.
