Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre were on the forefront of the West Coast hip-hop movement in the 1990s, introducing a slew of talented artists under the Death Row Records umbrella.

Two decades later, as a hip-hop legend, Snoop Dogg recognizes the talent of the youth. During a recent sit-down with Ad-Soul, he likened the young artist’s movement and his TDE label (who’s roster also includes Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q) to that of Death Row’s years ago.

“Ya’ll moving,” Snoop said in an episode of his Doube G News Network. “Ya’ll like a mini version of Death Row. For real though, ya’ll doing it. It looks good. It feels good and it’s got the right spirit on it and people f*ck with it so, keep up the good work.”

“Exactly,” Ab-Soul replied. “You passed the torch, what else can we do?”

What do you think? Is TDE the modern day Death Row Records?
