Comments Offon Snoop Dogg’s Son, Cordell Broadus, Taking Death Row Legacy Into Gaming DEATH ROW GAMES TO DEVELOP FOR FORTNITE
Death Row Games will be integrated with Death Row Records, giving underrepresented voices a chance to develop and publish their creations for popular game Fortnite, using its Unreal Editor.
Broadus explained to AFROTECH, “We’ve been creating games, but on a very amateur level. We’ve always had the mindset of building it on our own.”
Adding to this, he expressed the significance of working with his father, highlighting their unique partnership and the opportunity to continue Snoop Dogg’s legacy in the gaming industry.
The younger Broadus spoke about keeping his dad current, stating, “I think it’s dope for a father and a son to be working together for one, and for two he’s 51 years old,” Broadus explained.
“So he may be out of touch with some of these things. And I’m always there to keep him up to speed and translate information to him in a tone that he can understand.
I think that’s more important… but just as much as I’m giving him game he’s given me the keys to make these decisions with a IP as big as his.”
FANS REACT TO SNOOP GAMING VENTURE
The announcement of Death Row Games has received positive reactions from fans and gaming enthusiasts.
Users on X, a popular gaming platform, were enthused about the collaboration. Swankness on X expressed, “People f*ck with Snoop worldwide.
This could be major,” while fan gorrilla_black commented “ Totally with this cause none of these orgs are signing black gamers. Like almost none of em.”
In addition to Death Row Games, Snoop Dogg made headlines by acquiring the iconic Death Row Records label and releasing music through NFTs.
He also teamed up with blockchain gaming company Gala Games for the release of his latest album, B.O.D.R. (Bacc on Death Row).
With Snoop Dogg getting into the video game industry, he has also been one of the most marketable rappers ever.
Snoop has either advertised or invested in companies such as Petco, BIC, Skechers, Ice Cream by Dr.Bombay, and more.

Snoop Dogg’s entry into the gaming and streaming world reflects a larger trend.
