Former Death Row Records Photographer, Simone Green To Release New Book Detailing The Good & Bad Times At The Label [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Simone Green is a photographer who worked for Death Row Records during it's heyday. On January 13, 2012 she will be releasing a new book "Time Served On Death Row Records: My Days and Nights" chronicling both the good and bad that came with being associated with the most powerful and controversial record label of it's time.

 

"At Death Row Records there was more good times than there was bad, but when the bad came it kind of made you forget about the good times," she said.



The book is said to contain many never before seen photographs of Suge Knight, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg and Dr. Dre.

 

Check out an excerpt and video preview from the book below.

 

Alone in his office Suge said, “I want you to do everything we got going on. If we go out of town or do an awards show. Whatever we do I want you to do the photography. I want you to be the Chief of Photography.” Yeah, so I heard.

 

“Also, I want you to go out and buy 10 small cameras that you can disperse to different people in the company and they can report back to you with whatever they get.” He even said, “If somebody gets a beat down they’ll get that on film. Whatever might happen we’ll have it on film.”

 

I wasn’t sure what that was really about, control issues maybe, the important thing about this moment was that Suge Knight, Godfather of the hottest thing happening, wanted visuals of everything happening in his realm, and he just put me in charge of it all, I was officially on Death Row…..and life was good………….
