Dr. Dre Is Suing Death Row For $3 Million In Unpaid Royalties
Dr. Dre is reportedly asking his former label, Death Row Records to cough up $3.05 million in an unpaid royalties lawsuit. The suit dates back to Dre’s album sales leading all the way up to present day digital sales, all of which Dre has not collected on.
Dre is owed $676,444.44 for mechanical royalties, $1,200,386.57 for unpaid artist-producer royalties, and $1,179,913 for digital sales. The case also states that the hip-hop mogul has yet to receive a bonus that would boost his revenues from Death Row album sales from 18 to 20 percent.
