Snoop Dogg appears to have reunited with Death Row boss Suge Knight after posting a picture of the pair on his Instagram account.

The rapper posted a photo on his Instagram account on Friday afternoon of the pair partying in a nightclub.

The image shows Snoop smiling with two other men and Suge wearing a deadpan expression.

It’s unclear when and where the image was taken.

TMZ reports the photo is from a “recent night out”.

But Snoop seems to have moved on from the pair’s notoriously volatile relationship after the rapper signed to Death Row Records in the Nineties.

“N d club wit Suge miss those death row days!” Snoop captioned the photo.

The rapper, real name Calvin Broadus, Jr., rose to prominence after collaborating with Dr. Dre on 1992 album The Chronic, released through Death Row Records.

He released his debut album, Doggystyle, the following year.

An East Coast-West Coast rap battle broke out and Snoop’s relationship with the label turned sour.

The rapper accused Death Row executives of not backing him up in their feud with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ Bad Boy Records, based out of New York.

He eventually left the label, followed by Dre, as Death Row’s thuggish reputation grew.

Suge retaliated with dis records targeting the pair.

Snoop would later suggest Suge was involved in the unsolved murder of his Death Row labelmate Tupac Shakur.

The rapper has not directly addressed the status of his relationship with his former boss.

The 41-year-old star is still in the game.

Snoop is plotting the release of his 20th studio album, Reincarnated, later this year.
