Breaking Story: Michael “Harry O” Harris, Deathrow Records investor, being pardoned 1/19/21

Harry O is expected to be pardoned by Trump
Death Row Records co-founder Michael “Harry O” Harris is reportedly set to be released from prison after 32 years. Reports are that President Trump on Tuesday commuted the prison sentence of the Death Row Records’ co-founder Michael “Harry O” Harris.

He was incarcerated for attempted murder and cocaine trafficking.

Death Row Records was an American record label founded in 1992. The label became a sensation by releasing multi-platinum hip-hop albums by West Coast-based artists such as Dr. Dre (The Chronic), Snoop Dogg (Doggystyle), Tha Dogg Pound (Dogg Food), and Tupac Shakur (All Eyez on Me) during the 1990s.

At its peak, Death Row was making over US$100 million a year.

By the late 1990s, the label began to decline after the death of its star artist, Tupac Shakur, imprisonment of co-founder Suge Knight, and the departures of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

Although Death Row was enjoying financial success, it was embroiled in controversies, lawsuits, and violence by its artists and associates. Death Row Records filed for bankruptcy in 2006 and was auctioned to WIDEawake Entertainment for $18 million on January 15, 2009.

Snoopdogg reportedly lobbied for Harry O’s release.
