Hasbro is ready to grow as they now own Entertainment One which is the home of Death Row Records.


Hasbro is entering new territories as they now have possession of some of the biggest hip hop catalogs due to owning Death Records.

The toy company who is known to produce hundreds of board games and children’s toys has access to records from Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tupac, and many others due to buying out Entertainment One for $4B.

eOne is a well-known multimedia company that bought out Death Row Records for $280M back in 20013 after they went bankrupt in 2006.

Alongside Hasbro being marketed towards children, Entertainment One also has a hand in children entertainment as they are the name behind Peppa Pig and PJ Masks.

While Hasbro has been known to be a family brand, their CEO may not know the history of Death Row Records as he sent out a statement saying;

“The acquisition of eOne adds beloved story-led global family brands that deliver strong operating returns to Hasbro’s portfolio and provides a pipeline of new brand creation driven by family-oriented storytelling,” he said.

As of now, there has been no word from Suge Knight, The D.O.C., or Dr. Dre about this, but as soon as we hear something we will let you all know!
