Death Row Records Singer Jewell Caples has Reportedly Died

Jewell Caples, the ‘First Lady’ of Death Row Records, has died, according to reports. She was 54 at the time.

Daz Dillinger, a former Death Row Records partner, broke the news on Instagram earlier today (May 6).


Caples’ death has yet to be confirmed by an official statement.

Caples’ representatives have been contacted for comment by NME.

The R&B singer-songwriter was most recognised for his work with Dr. Dre and N.W.A., as well as his collaborations with the legendary Hip Hop label.

Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic,’ Snoop Dogg’s ‘Doggystyle,’ and Tupac’s ‘All Eyez On Me’ all included her.

On Twitter, fans pay tribute

Jewell Caples became well-known over time as a result of the excellent reception she received for her songs.

When her death was announced, Twitter was inundated with tributes.

Everything about Jewell Caples

Jewell Caples has appeared on multiple multi-platinum R&B/hip-hop albums. From 1992 to 1996, she was signed to Death Row Records.

Shirley Brown’s song Woman to Woman was covered by Caples. In 1994, the cover was ranked 72nd on the Billboard Hot 100. It also ranked 16th on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Caples then published Love or Lust, which was featured in Bill Duke’s film Deep Cover as well as two songs on the Above the Rim soundtrack in 1994.

‘The First Lady of Death Row Records,’ she’s been dubbed. In 2011, she was also the co-author and self-publisher of Felicia St. Jean’s book, My Blood, My Sweat, and My Tears. The memoir fueled allegations about Dr. Dre’s homosexuality and those connected to Tupac Shakur’s assassination.

Death Row Records was created in 1991 by The D.O.C., Dr. Dre, Suge Knight, and Dick Griffey as a record label. During the 1990s, multi-platinum hip-hop records by West Coast-based performers like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, and others made the label famous.

At its peak, the label brought in around $100 million each year. Following Tupac’s death, Suge Knight’s imprisonment, and the departure of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, it began to fall.

Death Row was a financially successful label, but it was marred by controversy, including lawsuits and acts of violence by musicians and collaborators.


The label declared bankruptcy in 2006 and was sold to WIDEawake Entertainment for $18 million in January 2009. However, in 2012, WIDEawake’s owner went bankrupt, and the label was purchased by Entertainment One.
