Priority Records continues its 25th anniversary celebration with the July 13 release in the US of a new compilation showcasing the most influential and best known artists from the famous label’s first quarter century.
Priority’s Creative Chairman, Snoop Dogg, selected the 17 tracks which include recordings from NWA, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Mack 10 as well as lesser-known artists such as Mia X and Young Bleed. In addition, the set includes a new recording by Snoop of Low Profile’s classic song ‘Pay Ya dues’. The track will be released digitally on June 29.
In addition to this new compilation, the Priority anniversary reisssue series U.S.D.A. (Uncut Snoop Dogg Approved) will continue in July with the re-release of four more classic Priority albums, as recommended by Snoop: Ice Cube’s ‘Death Certificate’, C-Murder’s ‘Trapped In Crime’, TRU’s ‘Da Crime Family’ and Snoop’s very own ‘Tha Last Meal’.
“This was my last record on No Limit Records,” writes Snoop in his new liner notes on ‘Tha Last Meal’, “So it gave me a chance to really sprout and become who I was, put a record together the way I Felt, and work with the people I wanted to work with. Master P and I made great music together, and this record right here put me in a strong position. This record had heat on it, man.”
