Death Row: Snoop Doggy Dogg at His Best is the first greatest hits album that includes his hits and also includes 6 never before released songs from Snoop Dogg's Death Row Records days. It was released on October 23, 2001 by Suge Knight . It was re-released on March 20, 2006.

Although this CD was released in 2001, it only featured songs that Snoop Dogg had recorded during his Death Row era. Therefore, none of the songs from his No Limit releases, "Da Game Is to Be Sold, Not to Be Told", "No Limit Top Dogg", or "Tha Last Meal" were included on this album, even though they were released before this one.
