The Ultimate Pun Cosplay Possibility – My Little Pony Owns The Dogg Pound

My little Pony gang

On Thursday, August 22, Hasbro, the popular toy company that owns My Little Pony, announced that they struck a deal to buy Entertainment One for $4 billion. Hasbro’s primary focus for the deal is to acquire the rights to popular kids shows like Peppa Pig and Pj Mask. The interesting part of the story is that Entertainment One also owns Death Row Records. The notorious music label, co-founded by Suge Knight. Death Row Records launched the careers of famous west coast rappers like Tupac Shakur, Dj Quik, and Snoop Dogg.

Who really owns Death Row Records?

Death Row Records has changed ownership multiple times in the past 13 years. Stay with me while I break this down and give you the cliff notes version:

  1. According to the Los Angeles Times, Death Row Records filed bankruptcy in 2006, claiming over $100 million in debt. The label was sold at auction, for $24 million to a New York company, Global Music Group (GMG).
  2. Billboard Music reported that GMG investors fought among themselves about which subsidiary would own the rights to the record label.
  3. GMG also had problems raising the $24 million price tag. Therefore, a judge ordered that Death Row Records be sold at auction once again.
  4. In 2009, a Canadian startup company, WIDEawake Entertainment, bought the label for 18 million.
  5. In 2012-13, WIDEawake Entertainment went bankrupt and sold Death Row to Entertainment One.
  6. Now in 2019, Hasbro sent out a tweet, nonchalantly telling us that they are buying Entertainment One.

There was no mention of Death Row Records. Just this nice, tamed infographic with a one-line sentence about the music department.

At the time of the first auction, Death Row owned the rights to:

  • Dr. Dre’s album –The Chronic (1992)
  • Snoop Dogg’s first album – Doggystyle (1993)
  • 2Pac’s album – All Eyes on Me (1996)

You might be asking yourself, what does any of this have to do with cosplay?

Hasbro, monopoly, power rangers, my little pony

Well, I wrote all of that just to let you know:

My Little Pony, The Power Rangers, Monopoly Guy, and Peppa Pig all control the Dogg Pound now!

The same company that owns Peppa Pig also owns Doggiestyle. I can not wait to see the pun cosplays that come out of this. Peppa Dogg anyone?

Please, don’t let me down!

So what are your thoughts about this merger? I want to hear from you.
