Ready yourself for some Snoop Dogg Monopoly.
Hasbro, the maker of Mr. Potato Head, Twister, G.I. Joe, and the aforementioned board game designed as a “critique of American greed,” is now the proud owner of Death Row Records. Yes, you read that correctly.
So reports Rolling Stone, which details the circuitous route by which the toymaker came to own a record label associated with Dr. Dre and Tupac. Hasbro, it seems, purchased an entertainment company by the name of Entertainment One earlier this week. That company just so happened to have acquired Death Row Records’ catalog in 2013 for around $280 million.
While Hasbro has yet to announce any specific “Gin and Juice”-inspired children’s toys or boardgames, Twitter has jumped into to fray to offer up its creative services free of charge.
Hasbro just bought Death Row Records and I swear if I don’t hear Woody and Buzz cover Nuthin But a G Thang I’ll lose it

Hasbro can legally play Snoop Dog and Tupac in the background of Power Rangers.
Think about that for a minute.
Whatever Hasbro eventually decides to do with its newfound collection of music, one thing is for sure: Someone, somewhere, is already working on a “Nuthin’ But A G.I. Joe Thang” single.
