As the proprietor of Death Row Records, Snoop Dogg has persisted in making significant decisions, including adding one of the label’s previous artists back to its roster.

The legendary West Coast rapper announced on Instagram over the weekend that Danny Boy has rejoined Death Row Records after leaving it years prior.

“He’s back home,” Snoop posted on Instagram, accompanied by a video showing the seasoned R&B vocalist getting down in the studio.

Several musicians responded to the news in the comments section. DJ Quik wrote, “This is [tick emoji],” while DJ Premier wrote, “WOWWWWWWW.”

Anthony Hamilton, Faith Evans, and Omarion—other well-known R&B singers—also expressed their joy.

On his personal Instagram page, Danny Boy announced his reunion with Snoop Dogg and Death Row Records and revealed that he is now working on new music.

“After 20 something years I finally got@the opportunity to do a song with the #dog #bigbro that open the door for us all @deathrowrecords @snoopdogg wow can’t believe this past week… I went on a #faithwalk #staytuned,” he wrote.

In another post, he said his new chapter with Death Row would be “amazing.”

“Thanks to my Neice @sasha_lanyae and her coworker @americanairline for having me sing on the mic and welcoming me back to #deathrow wow this chapter is going to be amazing,” he said.

Danny Boy is best known for his appearances on 2Pac‘s All Eyez on Me and The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, lending his voice to tracks such as “I Ain’t Mad at Cha,” “Picture Me Rollin’” and “Heaven Ain’t Hard 2 Find.”

Suge Knight originally signed the Chicago native to a five-year deal when he was just 16.

He made his debut on 1994’s Murder Was the Case soundtrack before releasing his first single “Slip N Slide” the following year.

Death Row put Danny Boy’s debut album, It’s About Time, on hold, but it was eventually released in 2010 with DJ Quik handling most of the production. Joel “JoJo” Hailey of Jodeci and Roger Troutman were the special guests.

After a singing video of Danny Boy went viral online last year, Snoop Dogg previously made the offer to bring him back to the label.

The 45-year-old artist Tha Doggfather demonstrated on Instagram that he had not lost any of his vocal ability. Snoop said in the caption, “@dannyboysteward, your seat on Death Row awaits you.”

Danny Boy’s acquisition coincides with the return of another Death Row group to the label, Tha Dogg Pound, who will this summer release their new album We All We Got via the Snoop-owned label.
